On RM constructed drains and RM owned lands the municipality will be responsible for problem beavers and dams. The landowner is responsible for problem beavers on privately owned land including natural drains. If beaver dams on private property are affecting municipal infrastructure it is at the discretion of the RM to take the necessary actions required to protect municipal infrastructure at the municipality’s expense, if deemed necessary. The Municipality is authorized to hire a trapper/hunter or for beaver control, as needed, for a per tail fee established by resolution, as well as hire the services of a contractor to remove beaver dams as deemed necessary by the RM. All hired trappers/hunters must possess a copy of an authorization form and kill permit while working for the municipality.
