Information on Coyotes Around Urban Areas
Coyotes have been spotted in areas around Martensville. There are a number of things you can do if you have an encounter with a coyote and discourage them from coming near more populated areas.
• Do not approach. Allow coyote to escape by identifying and maintaining escape routes
• Never feed the animals
• Do not turn your back or run
• Act assertive, yell and wave your arms (act big, bad and loud)
• Keep pets away to avoid creating additional stress for the animal
• Ensure household garbage is securely stored in garbage bins, store bird seed, compost and pet food so it cannot be accessed.
• Clean up fallen fruit
• Pick up dog feces and be aware that dog urine may also attract coyotes
• Do not allow your pets to roam freely, and keep dogs on leash
If the coyote is acting unusual (approaching people, limping, staggering or acting confused) do not approach, contact City Hall, or the regional Conservation Office or the RCMP outside regular business hours.
Please Watch for Signage around our Parks and pathways. We will continue to monitor activity going forward.

Water Meter Read/Estimate Schedule Commencing in October
Between the months of October and May, the City puts in place an alternating schedule that includes meter reading for half of the City. The alternating schedule is in place during these months due to extra time required to complete city-wide, month to month meter reads. Changes to seasonal staffing, colder temperatures, inclement weather, higher priority maintenance issues in cooler seasons, are all contributing factors in encouraging residents to provide their own meter reading.
Why Should you provide your own meter reading?
• Your water bill will be based on actual consumption preventing you from being over billed or under billed
• Days of usage may be higher when an estimate is used resulting in higher billing. A water meter read will ensure accuracy.
• Estimates are based on prior usage, including summer months where water usage is typically higher. Actual water use in winter months will likely be lower resulting in a lower actual bill.
LET’S CONTROL OUR PETS!
The City of Martensville would like to remind residents that it is our responsibility to control and clean up after our pets even in off-leash areas such as the dog park.
Here are some important reminders for pet owners as per the Animal Control Bylaw:
• Do not allow your pet to be or become a nuisance by excessive barking, howling, or become threatening to other owners or pets;
• Do not allow your pet to run at large;
• Clean up defecation of your animal from private or public properties, other than the property occupied by the owner;
