Welcome to the Town of Saltcoats

Saltcoats is located 27 km from the City of Yorkton. Due to the picturesque setting of Anderson Lake, Saltcoats has earned the title of "The Laketown".

Results of By-Election
Residents of Saltcoats are asked to remove residential garbage and recycle bins post pickup by OSS as soon as possible. By removing the bins from the roadway, the ability to grade the roads is greatly increased. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.
Saltcoats Historic Cemetery
Some progress has been made on aspects of the Saltcoats Historic Cemetery Rejuvenation Project. Winter will be a time when our committee gathers information, makes specific plans, and looks after items that are not dependent on summer weather. After a great start, donations have stalled and we need all who care about the cemetery’s maintenance and improvement to do what they can to provide funds and, very importantly, get the message out to family and friends who no longer live within the community but who would have loved ones buried in this cemetery. Personal notes, Facebook pages, whatever connects you with others, have already proven helpful. Late summer and through the fall season just are not times when we give a lot of attention to projects like this. Please do all you can to pass the word to family and friends and to encourage them to help with this worthy effort to honour those who have gone before us. For more information, a list of projects and ways to help, please click here.
Snow Removal Services
The Saltcoats Housing Authority is seeking the services of an individual or business to provide snow removal services at 17 housing units at 4 buildings in the Town of Saltcoats. Services include snow and ice removal from steps, walkways and parking areas as well as application of ice melt and/or traction aid materials as required.
Services must be performed as required on a timely basis to maintain clear, safe access to and from the housing units. This could mean services may be required daily or even more than once per day, depending on weather conditions. A daily log is required to be completed.
The services will be provided on contract; this is not a position of employment. The ‘contractor’ will be required to provide equipment including shovels, brooms, blower, gas, etc.
Individuals or businesses interested in providing these services are invited to contact:
Jerome Niezgoda, Manager
Saltcoats Housing Authority
