General Information 

CURRENT OWNERSHIP:  If there has been an ownership change please forward the tax statement to the current owner immediately or return it to the Municipal Office.  Please advise our office promptly of any change of mailing address.  Failure to receive a tax bill does not excuse an owner of the responsibility for the payment of taxes nor relieve that owner of penalties incurred.

OWNERSHIP MAPS:  The Municipality sells Ownership Maps to the public, property owners and lease holders.  Any person has the right to request that their name not be published on the map.  This request has to be done in writing to the RM Office.

EMERGENCY RESPONSE:   In case of an emergency, residents are reminded to call 9-1-1 for police, fire or ambulance services.  Please state your 5 digit civic number at the end of your driveway as well as the Municipal Road No.  you live on.  If you do not have a civic number posted at the end of your driveway, please contact the Municipal Office.

BUILDING/DEVELOPMENT PERMITS:   Any construction in the RM of Ste. Anne requires a Development and/or Building Permit prior to the commencement of any work.  Failure to do so will result in a fine.  Development Permit Applications are also required for pools/hot tubs, mobile homes, farm buildings, new livestock operations (incl. livestock expansion), and the Additional Use of buildings and/or property within the municipality.  Building Permits are issued by appointment only.  For more information, and to make an appointment, please call the Municipal Office at 204-422-5929.

ASSESSMENT:   The onus is on the property owner to check the assessed value of their property. The breakdown of your assessments can be obtained at the Assessment Branch in Steinbach (204-326-9896).  The removal of buildings from your property should be reported promptly in writing to the Municipal Office or to the Assessment Branch.

GRADER RENTAL:  The Municipality no longer provides private driveway grader work or snow removal.

GRASS & BRUSH FIRES:   Where any type of fire (eg. burning garbage, grass fire and/or brush fire) deliberately set by a resident gets out of control and requires emergency services, the property owner may be fined up to $1000.00 as per Outdoor Fire By-law No. 9-2010.  Please call your Councillor regarding fire bans during the year.

FALSE ALARMS:  As per Res. #396-06, "effective January 1, 2007, the RM of Ste. Anne will charge $300.00 to property owners for each false alarm call exceeding two (2) false alarm calls per calendar year".

DRIVEWAY CULVERTS:   It is the property owner's responsibility to keep the culverts, across their driveway, free of debris and obstructions.  Any culvert installation requires Water Stewardship licensing.  Please contact the office at 204-422-5929 for further information.

SNOW PILED ON MUNICIPAL ROADS:   The practice of cleaning private lands and driveways of rocks, bales and/or snow on Municipal Road Allowance, creates a hazard during municipal snow plowing.  The RM of Ste. Anne will take the necessary action to enforce the Highway Traffic Act.  Any person acting in contravention of the Highway Traffic Act will be held liable for any claims arising out of their actions. Violators will be invoiced by the Municipality for removal services and may be fined, as per resolution of council.

HOUSEHOLD GARBAGE:  Effective February 1, 2011, "the Municipality will only pay for regular household waste deposited by RM of Ste. Anne residents or his agent, at the Steinbach Waste Disposal Ground Facility" - Res. #601-10.
