Taxes 2018

 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. As a result, all of the municipal taxes increased beyond the 100 dollars on base tax. If you already paid your taxes you will have a credit on your account. The new tax notices are now in the mail. Please do not pay the tax notice dated June 21, 2018.  More information is available here.

Slope Stability and Erosion Control Review and Best Practices Guide for Hunts Cove Hill

In October of 2017, Clifton Associates Ltd. was retained by the Resort Village of Cochin to assess Hunts Cove Hill and the surrounding area with respect to slope stability and erosion. The intent of this project was to: 

  • Identify and assess areas of concern with respect to landslide and erosion risk, 
  • Provide recommendations for mitigation and/or remediation for identified areas of concern, and
  • Provide a slope stability and erosion best practices development guide, to assist the Client in developing policies and procedures to minimize slope stability and erosion risk for new developments, and modifications to existing properties.

Beach Cleaning, Leaves, Trees, and Branches

 We are working to regularly clear the beach areas. Residents are asked to assist us by removing all items which will impede efficient cleaning of the beach areas. 

Bagged leaves will not be picked up until after the September long weekend.  In 2019 there will be two pickups:  after the May long weekend and after the September long weekend.  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. Residents are asked to assist us by removing all items which will impede efficient cleaning of the beach areas.

Cochin Lighthouse

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.

Land of Living Skies

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.
