At their meeting, earlier this week Council reported receiving a letter from the government of Saskatchewan Ministry of Government Relations regarding the Northern Municipal Revenue Sharing Grant for 2022-23. The Northern Municipalities Regulations require that each municipality be informed in writing of the amount of its Northern Municipal Revenue Sharing Grant including an explanation showing how the amount was determined. For 2022-23 all municipalities experienced a 4.84 percent reduction in MRS Grants from the previous year due to a 4.84 percent reduction in provincial sales tax revues earned by the province. All municipalities must be compliant with the MRS eligibility requirements to receive the full grant. The Town of Creighton has satisfied all six MRS requirements and will receive the full grant of one million one hundred and eighty-one thousand three hundred and sixty-five dollars. Council said they have made allowances in their budget so Town operations will be fine as they’ve seen reductions in the past.
