** Base for Hospital, the Town belongs to the Twin Rivers Group (Duck Lake, Rosthern, Waldheim, Hepburn, Hague, RMs of Duck Lake, Rosthern and Laird), and the group has been levying a Hospital Base Tax since 2015. The Twin Rivers group is responsible for 20% of the costs of a new hospital. Funds levied to date are in Town Reserves, which will be allocated once a new hospital for Rosthern is announced by the Provincial Government – we are hopeful to hear an announcement shortly!
