A Brief RM History

RM of Aberdeen On June 24, 1909, a committee submitted a petition to organize 7 full and 3 partial townships. This petition was granted on July 26, 1909. The Municipal Committee named John J. Heinrich of Aberdeen as their representative. The petition was signed by 58 people. The petition was granted by a vote taken on July 26, 1909. The Rural Municipality was established by the Order of Honourable A.P. McNab, Municipal Commissioner, December 13, 1909. Since then, one township was annexed by the RM of Corman Park. During the period of 1915-1919, considerable road improvements and construction took place because of the new popularity of automobiles. Roads still remain the major concern for the Municipality. Today, the RM of Aberdeen maintains over 340 miles of road in the summer and over 200 miles of road in the winter. Highways #41 and #27 run through the RM, while Highway #5 marks the southern border of the Municipality.
