The Rural Municipality of Hanover is exploring the costs of adding a lift station in the community of Mitchell. The municipality understands that current growth is reaching system capacities. The lift station will allow for continued development, by addressing the sewer concerns.

2016 01 hanover1Reeve Stan Toews says Schinkel Properties would like to build a modular home development in the northeast corner of Mitchell. He suggests there could be as many as 200 lots developed north of Stahn Field Park.

Toews says Hanover had hoped for grant money but it doesn't appear that will happen. Administration has now been tasked with providing Schinkel Properties with the estimated cost-share for the lift station based on the projected number of residences within the development. According to Toews, once the lift station is in place, developers who hook up will have to pay their portion of usage.

"Staff will look at the costs and see how much the developer's portion is and then if they pay their share, then maybe the community can come up with the rest so then they can move forward again," notes Toews.

Schinkel Properties has been asked to provide administration with their projected assessed value for the proposed development.

Toews says the developer probably would have liked to have begun construction already, but he says hopefully they can get going in a year or so.
