The Town of Indian Head

 The Town of Indian Head invites sealed proposals from qualified contractors for the construction of a stand-alone structure to be used as a waste transfer station site attendant office. 

There will be no charge at the Waste Transfer Station for local yard waste loads on October 5th & 6th, 2019.

Please note, as part of our Dutch Elm Disease management strategy, the Town of Indian Head will be contracting DR Tree Service to basal spray targeted American Elm trees in the area.

Communities in Bloom Judges will be in our community from July 16-18th.

On Tuesday, April 16th, Indian Head was host to a Town Hall Forum on "The State of Dutch Elm Disease in Saskatchewan".

On March 7th, 2019 the Honourable Christine Tell, Minister of Corrections and Policing and A/Commr. Mark Fisher, Commanding Officer of the Saskatchewan RCMP, along with some of our community partners, announced the launch of the Saskatchewan Crime Watch Advisory Network.

The Town of Indian Head is now accepting applications from community organizations who have plans that will enhance sports, recreation and culture opportunities in Indian Head.

After careful consideration the Town of Indian Head is pleased to announce that Loraas Disposal has been awarded the contract for residential curbside garbage collection.

There is no cure for Dutch Elm Disease, but proper maintenance can help to prevent it. 

The Town of Indian Head’s waste management operations including curbside garbage collection will be transitioning in the near future to a sustainable solution that will best serve the disposal needs of the residents now and in the future. Please see the link below for more information.

Transfer Station Preliminary Information

In an effort to increase the distribution of important information, the Town will be adding an emailing list to our communication plan.

Transportation is provided to residents above the age of 55 with special transportation needs, within town limits.

We are thrilled to announce Indian Head was selected as the winner for communities with a population ranging from 1,001 to 4,500 on a national scale! Our Communities in Bloom organization, hard working volunteers, and proud residents all worked hard to keep our Town beautiful and welcoming. We are so proud of the accomplishment!

This was our first National win, and is an outstanding addition to the six Provincial wins we have claimed!

The latest round of judging awarded Indian Head a Bronze designation, which goes above the highest designations given out in previous years. We were the only town in our category to achieve this designation!

The Town discovered a major water break late last night on a watermain coming into Town. The water break has been isolated however you may be experiencing lower than normal water pressure as well as discolouration. We are currently working on repairing the break and we will keep you updated. We ask that you take precautions and refrain from drinking the water at this time. Bathing, showering, laundry etc. is at your discretion. Thank-you.

UPDATE - August 20, 2014

The water break was fixed yesterday however, some people may still have some discolouration in their water. It is normal to have discolouration in water after a major water break like this. The water needs to make its way through the system and this can be achieved quicker through running water (ie. watering your lawn etc.) Once the water clears up it's at your discretion whether to drink it or not. We have sent water samples in and hope to have the results back on Friday.

UPDATE - August 22, 2014

The Town of Indian Head has received back the water sample tests taken after our recent water break. All test results came back clear and the water is 100% good for consumption. Thank You for your patience and understanding!
