COVID-19: Daily update on changes to programs and services - May 25, 2020

For immediate release: May 26, 2020 - 1:00pm
FI20-1281

The City is doing its part to flatten the curve of COVID-19 cases in Saskatoon. We have made many staffing and service changes so our employees can safely deliver services to residents and to make sure people remain physically apart from one another. This way we can all work together by staying apart – it will protect the health of essential frontline healthcare staff, core service workers and first-responders. These actions in turn protect all of us.

Residential street sweeping begins Monday, May 25

The sweep must go on! Street sweeping crews are coming to a neighbourhood near you starting this week. Watch for their yellow No Parking signs and move your car if you can. Vehicles left on a scheduled street on sweep day will be towed to a nearby street.

Find your sweep day at saskatoon.ca/sweep. Phone our customer care centre if your vehicle was relocated and you can’t find it at 306-975-2476.

Matters Scheduled for Bylaw Court to Resume Monday, June 1

The Provincial Court of Saskatchewan has announced the re-opening of Courts but there will be limited access due to provincial COVID-19 restrictions. 

All City of Saskatoon scheduled bylaw matters will resume effective June 1, 2020 and if you receive a summons to appear, you should plan to attend or send someone in your place.

For those attending, there will be social distancing measures in place and limited access based on numbers.  As well, please follow the recommendations regarding face masks. The Public Health Agency of Canada now recommends wearing a non-medical mask in the community even if you have no symptoms as an additional measure to protect others around you and where physical distancing is not possible or is unpredictable.

This link provides the information you may need to confirm a rescheduled date and time for matters originally scheduled from March 23-May 31, 2020.

For the March to May adjourned matters and the June or July scheduled trials, the City of Saskatoon will continue to review all matters and we will be in contact with you to confirm the date and time for your matter and other details. 

Should you require further information, you can contact the City Solicitor’s Office directly at 306-975-3270 or by email at city.solicitor@saskatoon.ca

Public Pay Parking & other parking enforcement measures reinstated today

With the return of retail commercial activity as part of the Province's Re-Open Saskatchewan plan, pay parking requirements and enforcement, including parking time limits, has been reinstated starting Monday, May 25 to help ensure parking turnover for customers and businesses in high-demand pay parking zones.
