Community of Chitek Lake: Please be advised that the Council of the Resort Village of Chitek Lake is both aware of and pursuing action for reevaluation of harvesting operations/logging by the Ministry of Environment and undertaken by Sakaw Askiy Management Inc. Chitek Lake falls under Unit #27 of the harvesting plan which is set to commence early Winter 2021. A letter has been written on behalf of Council and Mayor and has been submitted to the office of Jeremy Harrison.
Council will be having a virtual meeting with Sakaw Askiy Management Inc this coming week and in addition to that, more members from the company will attend virtually the upcoming council meeting in December.
Please note that we are attending to this promptly in attempt to have the draft harvesting plans looked at and discussed in further detail as to ensure adequate forest preservation.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please contact the village office. We also invite members of the community to email Sakaw Askiy Management directly with further questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
