NEWS RELEASE MOOSE JAW April 28, 2015 OFF-LEASH DOG PARK IS OPEN! MOOSE JAW – It’s official!! The City of Moose Jaw’s Off-Leash Bark Park is open and ready for your furry friends to use. The new Bark Park includes two separate enclosed areas – one for small dogs under 18 inches and a larger dog area for those over 18 inches. The Park is the first of its kind in Moose Jaw that allows the opportunity for dogs to run and play off-leash. Park amenities include accessible pathways & parking stalls, benches, doggie doo bag stations, trash receptacles and a few “tunnels” to play hide and seek in. A water tap will also be provided and installed at a later date. Some areas of the Park that were recently developed will take a bit of time for the natural grasses to grow back. In the fall of 2014, the City initiated construction of the Park with the remainder of the work being completed within the last month. The Park is located in Hamilton Flats on the 1500 block of Manitoba Street West. Dog owners are encouraged to get out and enjoy the new off-leash Park. “Rules and regulation signs are posted at the entrance to both the small and large dog park areas, and residents are encouraged to familiarize themselves with these rules for the full enjoyment of all users,” said Kelly Mentanko, Operations Manager. “There are some very basic rules like please pick up after your dogs, owners must carry a leash at all times, dogs must have a valid City licence and dogs must be in view of their owners and under their control at all times,” he added. The City of Moose Jaw would like to encourage users to provide their feedback on the Off-Leash Dog Park to the Parks & Recreation Department.

NEWS RELEASE MOOSE JAW April 17, 2015 CITY OF MOOSE JAW AND MOOSE JAW FIREFIGHTERS’ ASSOCIATION LOCAL #553 INTEREST ARBITRATION AWARD HANDED DOWN MOOSE JAW – Arbitration Chair, A. Robson Garden, issued an Interest Arbitration Award for the City of Moose Jaw and the Moose Jaw Fire Fighters’ Association, International Association of Firefighters, Local 553. The Firefighters have been without a contract since December 31, 2010. The binding Award results in a 13% wage increase and covers the period from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2014. Wage increases for a First Class Firefighter shall increase January 1, 2011 by 2% and by 2.1% July 1, 2011; shall increase January 1, 2012 by 2% and .8% July 1, 2012; shall increase January 1, 2013 by 2% and 1.1% July 1, 2013; and shall increase by 3% January 1, 2014. As well, a .5% increase to pension contributions shall be retroactive to January 1, 2011. Going forward, an additional .5% shall be allocated for health and dental benefits. “This recent arbitration process will have significant retroactive costs,” said City Manager Matt Noble. “We accept this Award and we are pleased we can now update the Collective Agreement with our professional firefighters until the end of 2014. Regrettably, it means this Collective Agreement has already expired,” said Noble. “The decision adds to the increasing cost of providing tax-supported emergency services and reinforces the need to address this fiscal challenge on a community and province-wide basis,” he added. The City, in its presentation to the Arbitration Board, addressed the criteria pursuant to the newly-proclaimed Saskatchewan Employment Act and was the first municipality to have an Interest Arbitration Award heard under these new provisions. The Interest Arbitration Hearing took place in Moose Jaw from October 6 to 8, 2014. Bruce Siemens was the Firefighters’ Association Nominee while Kenneth Cornea was the City’s Nominee. The City was represented by its Counsel, John Saunders. Media Contact: Matt Noble, City Manager City of Moose Jaw PHONE # (306) 694-4427 firstname.lastname@example.org
