The City of Saskatoon has now recovered just over two thirds or nearly $700 thousand of the City’s money that was directed to a fraudster’s bank account in August 2019 through a fraud scheme – that’s roughly $300 thousand more than last month’s update.

“We recognize and are thankful for the efforts expended by multiple parties in order to recover these funds and look forward to further recovery in the coming weeks,” says City Manager Jeff Jorgenson.

Jorgenson says the next court hearing on this matter is scheduled for November 5, 2019, in Toronto.

Mr. Justice R.W. Elson today ruled on the application of the owner of 166 Beechdale Crescent for an injunction to prevent the demolition of his property. 

An injunction was not granted by the Court. 

The City can proceed to demolish the property. However, the Court’s decision does not guarantee that the property will be demolished.

Demolition will depend on whether a plan can be formulated with the City to determine if the property can be remediated safely, legally and quickly.
