THERE IS CURRENTLY A FIRE BAN IN PLACE
(Open Fires are Prohibited – more details)
Grass Cutting in the Village – (NEW)
At the request of all Council, the Village is currently experimenting with doing partial cuts in the Village rather than full cuts. At this time, residents may notice areas where the grass is longer because it is an area of rapid growth differing from other areas (slow growth). The contractor will make adjustments and note areas of the Village where the grass grows quickly and requires adjustments/weekly cuts. The Village requests residents to be patient as we figure out these fast-growing areas. Doing partial cuts focused on areas of fast – growth without cutting the entire Village will allow the Village to receive more cuts at the same cost. If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with the Village office.
Fire and OHV Ban is Now – LIFTED (NEW)
As of May 30th, @ 4:50 P.M., the Village Fire and OHV Ban has been lifted, the Village’s Fire Hazard is moved to a Fire Advisory. (Please note – the Logo at the top of this webpage will be updated to reflect a Fire Advisory Logo shortly).
This Fire Advisory means residents may resume having safe recreational fires in fire pits (BYLAW 187 – 16), but are asked to be diligent in monitoring the containment of the fire and take all necessary precautions when choosing to have a fire during a Fire Advisory. Thank you for your cooperation!
Water Restriction is Now – LIFTED (NEW)
As of May 30th @ 9:00 A.M., the Class A water restriction issued on May 19th, 2023, has now been lifted, and regular water use may resume. Thank you for your cooperation!
The Village is Looking for a Contractor (NEW)

This contractor must have insurance and WCB coverage. For more information, please contact the CAO through email or phone by Friday, June 16th.
ATTENTION Boat Lift Owners (NEW)
At Yellowstone’s May 19th Council meeting, Council opted not to enforce the removal of boat lifts/docks from Municipal Reserves (MRs) for 2023 (POLICY A-TRA-BOAT-1). This is for 2023 only. However, there will be two requirements for residents who wish to continue storing their items on the Village MRs. First, all items must be linked to their owners through a new tagging system that the Village will implement starting at the end of May. Second, owners of boat lifts/docks/boats must keep the grass trimmed around their stored items all summer. Residents wishing to keep boat lifts/docks/boats on the MRs must contact the Village to complete a form and obtain a tag from the Village. When this new system is ready to implement, it will be posted here on the website so please check back soon!

Village Walking Path and Off-Highway Vehicles
A friendly reminder that Off-Highway Vehicles are permitted to operate on Village roads but NOT on the walking path unless necessary to transport items to and from the lake. Driving Off-Highway Vehicles on the walking path disturbs residents and damages the path and grass. Those found contravening this Bylaw may be subject to a violation ticket or court appearance. For more information regarding Off-Highway Vehicle use and requirements, please see BYLAW 202-2019 of the Bylaw section on this website. The Village requests that everyone respects this Bylaw and keeps the walking path to its intended use. New signage will be placed to remind residents of this Bylaw.
