Please submit your tender including your monthly fee and the equipment to be used.
Tenders must be submitted to the RM office by 4:30 pm on Thursday October 22nd, 2015.

Additional security measures will be implemented within the resort in order to ensure that we all have a safe and enjoyable Canada Day holiday. Because the holiday falls mid-week, the additional measures will in place the weekend before and the weekend after, as well as the 1st.
A checkpoint will be in place on the main road throughout the evening, the rear gate will be closed during the evening, and police patrols will be more frequent.
All the placements on private docks (south of the boat launch) have been finalized, and those people securing seasonal spots (north of the boat launch) have been contacted. If you were looking for a spot and have not been contacted then you may be on the wait list. Once the seasonal spots have been finalized the wait list will be published on the website.
Daily bookings are available for anyone needing them by contacting Jax Snacks at 306-278-1210. Daily bookings are restricted to cabin owners within the Marean Lake Resort until June 15th, after which they will be open to the public.
The cool weather a few weeks ago delayed the leafing of the trees and the development of the caterpillars, but that changed dramatically in the last 2 days. Weather permitting, tent caterpillar spraying at Greenwater and Marean could start as early as Monday, May 25th. Look for planes to be in the air starting between 5:00 and 6:00 AM.
(Note: Spraying was completed as planned on the morning of the 25th)
Over the upcoming May long weekend additional security measures will be implemented within the resort in order to ensure that we all have a safe and enjoyable weekend.
A checkpoint will be in place on the main road throughout the evening, the rear gate will be closed during the evening and overnight, and police patrols will be more frequent.
Tent caterpillars are those annoying things that strip deciduous trees of their leaves, crawl on every available surface, spin cocoons everywhere, and generally make life miserable. They began encroaching on Marean Lake from the south last summer and will be approaching their peak this year. In order to make the lake liveable this summer, the Marean Lake Advisory Committee is partnering with the other developments at the lake to undertake an aerial spraying program.
Depending on weather conditions, it is expected the Marean and Greenwater area will be sprayed midweek following the May long weekend (May 19-21). Spraying will occur in the very early morning hours when winds are the calmest.
