Neighbourhood street sweeping, towing begins in Saskatoon
City will ticket and tow vehicles if they are not moved
After some weather-related false starts, the city of Saskatoon has found some success in the battle against dust with its annual spring street sweeping program.
Work on main roads is complete, so sweeping crews will begin moving through residential neighbourhoods, starting with Holiday Park today.
Armed with an extra $605,000 this year, more workers and equipment will hit the streets. Even so, it will take crews about six weeks to finish cleaning the neighbourhoods.
Watch for no parking signs
To do a proper job on residential streets, tow trucks will be moving vehicles and parking enforcement will be in full effect. If the city has to tow your vehicle you will also get a $100 ticket.
If you vehicle is towed you can use the city’s Find My Vehicle! application to locate it.
