Mayor's Message

MESSAGE FROM THE MAYOR

Welcome to Sturgis, Saskatchewan – a community we are all very proud to call home.

We live in changing times - the world is much smaller today than it was just a few short years ago. Technology has brought the world to our doorstep, no matter where you may live. Everything you want or someplace you may wish to visit is just a few hours away. T

  • Why do I live in a city full of crime, I can’t go out for a walk in the evening with my family for fear of getting mugged and robbed?
  • Why do I breathe this foul air?
  • Why do I have to buy bottled water to drink instead of turning my kitchen tap to quench my thirst with clear, clean and cold municipal water?
  • Did I remember to lock my car when I got home?
  • Did I remember to lock my home this morning when I left?
  • Do you know and trust your neighbours?
  • The cost of living is getting prohibitive?

Times may change but our basic needs don’t change, needs like:

  • Quality of life. Enjoy every day to its fullest with family, friends and neighbours, in other words fellowship and interaction with other people.
  • A safe community to live in, 24 hours a day.
  • A healthy environment, clear air to breathe and clean quality water to drink. Plenty of green space, less stress and wilderness areas to relax and meditate in.
  • Rest and relaxation – places to play and time to work.
  • The cost of living is low.

Saskatchewan is a great province to live in, and the Town of Sturgis is proud to be part of the action. We are a very picturesque community, with the Assiniboine River flowing through our Regional Park on the south side of town and high hills on the north. Mixed agriculture (cattle and grain production) is the mainstay of the region and the Town of Sturgis is the focal point for these producers to access their fertilizer, chemical and seed requirements and market their cattle and hogs.

Our greatest asset is our people - our tremendous proven ability to work together on community projects is widely known and is the envy of the province. From the glacial gravel deposits of the Assiniboine River valley comes the town’s clear, excellent quality and quantity municipal water supplies.

Why not improve your Quality of Life, consider a move to Sturgis, Saskatchewan. You will never regret it.

Warmest regards,

Alan Holmberg, Mayor

Town of Sturgis
