We received inquiries about taxes being higher than noted on Council Comments. After looking into this a mill rate factor was taken on some of the municipal taxes. We don’t have a mill rate factor. We have a mill rate. This was a computer glitch that added not only a mill rate, but a mill rate factor as well. Essentially doubling people’s mill rate.

These 2018 and 2019 pickups will be for leaves bagged in clear plastic bags only and do not include tree and bush trimmings: leaves only. Residents will have the responsibility of taking leaves not in clear plastic bags and tree and bush trimmings to the Village’s landfill which is open Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm. Residents should not allow this type of refuse to build up over the summer but should take the material to the landfill. We are working to regularly clear the beach areas.

The Resort Village of Cochin is located 36 kilometres north of the Battlefords on Highway 4 North in Saskatchewan. It is nestled between two beautiful prairie lakes, Murray Lake and Jackfish Lake. This location makes the resort community of Cochin a great vacation spot as well as a fantastic place to live. Join us for our annual Cochin Days celebration during the second weekend of August .

A lighthouse in Saskatchewan?! The only lighthouse in Saskatchewan is at the north end of the village of Cochin. The Cochin Lighthouse was built in 1988 on the top of Pirot Hill. From here visitors have a spectacular view of both Jackfish and Murray Lakes. The lighthouse is 11.5 meters tall (38 ft). There are 153 steps to the top. The rotating beacon can be seen for miles.

There's a reason that Saskatchewan is known for its living skies. We have the most spectacular sunsets in the world! Residents and visitors can enjoy the the beach, take a refreshing swim in the lake, play tennis or beach volleyball, visit the playgrounds, fish, waterski, wakeboard or tube behind a boat. There's lots to do here all year round. Enjoy photos of the area here.
