REGINA – Urban municipal politicians in Saskatchewan want SaskPower to provide every northern community with a backup electrical generator to lessen the impact of power outages.

The resolution was passed yesterday at the Regina convention of the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association, where delegates said outages affecting the one power line to the north have long been a source of frustration.

Delegates also voted in favour of allowing the use of golf carts within town limits.

A resolution from the Town of Kamsack asks the province to let municipalities set their own regulations on golf carts so that seniors would have more mobility.
