RM of Moose Jaw aiming to improve standard of grid road

Shawna Ross’ headache isn’t going away anytime soon, but it might soon dissipate – slightly.

The rural landowner lives a few hundred metres south of an inland lake that currently covers a stretch of Highway 202 –about 10 kilometres west of Tuxford – and bisects a grid road that runs adjacent to her property.

Delahey expected to be financially compensated

For weeks, Dave Delahey has been pumping water out of the “inland lake” that has consumed a section of his land.

It’s been a long and slow process, without noticeably significant results, but Delahey has continued to do so without any form of reimbursement from the RM of Moose Jaw.

However, at Tuesday’s RM council meeting, councillors decided to take a step toward reimbursing Delahey in at least some small manner.

“He is definitely helping out the whole community,” said Reeve Darol Owens. “We all realize that he is going above and beyond.”

According to administrator Mike Wirges, Delahey has previously said “no” to compensation from the RM from the crops he has lost as a result of the flooding, which has also consumed a small stretch of Highway 202 east of Tuxford.

Council passed a resolution at the meeting, which paves the way for a meeting to take place involving Delahey and representatives from the RMs of Moose Jaw and Marquis, as well as a representative from the Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure.

That meeting – at an unknown future date – is expected to produce monetary compensation for Delahey for his community assistance efforts.
