  12. &lt;div id=&quot;ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_RichHtmlField1__ControlWrapper_RichHtmlField&quot; style=&quot;display:inline&quot;&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;strong&gt;For Immediate Release:  January 2, 2015&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;TU15-100&lt;/span&gt;
  13. &lt;p&gt;
  14. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Environment Canada is forecasting -28 C and colder over the weekend and the City would like to caution drivers of the affect these cold temperatures can have on driving conditions.&lt;/span&gt;
  15. &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  16. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  17. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Roadway crews are out now and will continue to keep high speed roads clear throughout the snowfall, sanding and salting as required.  Extreme cold can create icy conditions on sidewalks and roads, especially on bridges and overpasses.  In addition: &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  18. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  19. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;- The very cold road conditions combined with ice crystals in the air settle and cause roadways to be more slippery than usual winter driving conditions.  Condensation, which drifts from vehicle exhaust when stopped or in rush hour traffic near intersections, may also contribute to more frost on the road.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;- During very cold weather, on Circle Drive sand is applied more frequently as it does not stick to the roadway as well as it would under warmer temperatures. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;- We are continuing the pilot project for the use of the magnesium chloride additive to sand as a de-icer and applying it to Circle Drive and the priority 1 streets as salt is ineffective for melting ice below -16 C. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;- We take extra precautionary measures in extreme weather conditions: All bridge decks are checked and sanded every two hours.  Bridge decks are usually sanded just before rush hour because it' - s very difficult to sand during peak times. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  20. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  21. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;City Crews will be doing their best to keep roads sanded and salted, so &lt;b&gt;please watch for equipment on the road&lt;/b&gt;.  The large machines used are equipped with flashing amber lights, move slowly in teams of two or more and can be found on the road at any time of day or night.  Drivers should stay a minimum of 15 metres back from the equipment and approach slowly if passing is necessary.   &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  22. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  23. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;When safe to do so, drivers can report icy locations to Public Works Customer Service at &lt;span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;white-space:nowrap&quot; class=baec5a81-e4d6-4674-97f3-e9220f0136c1&gt;306-975-2476&lt;a style=&quot;border-bottom:medium none;position:static !important;border-left:medium none;margin:0px;width:16px;bottom:0px;display:inline;white-space:nowrap;float:none;height:16px;vertical-align:middle;overflow:hidden;border-top:medium none;cursor:hand;right:0px;border-right:medium none;top:0px;left:0px&quot; title=&quot;Call: 306-975-2476&quot; href=&quot;/FORUM/News%20Releases/Pages/RISKFORICYDRIVINGCONDITIONSWITHSNOWCOLDTEMPERATURES.aspx?ControlMode=Edit&amp;amp;DisplayMode=Design#&quot;&gt;&lt;img style=&quot;border-bottom:medium none;position:static !important;border-left:medium none;margin:0px;width:16px;bottom:0px;display:inline;white-space:nowrap;float:none;height:16px;vertical-align:middle;overflow:hidden;border-top:medium none;cursor:hand;right:0px;border-right:medium none;top:0px;left:0px&quot; title=&quot;Call: 306-975-2476&quot;&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;a title=&quot;Call: 306-975-2476&quot; href=&quot;/FORUM/News%20Releases/Pages/RISKFORICYDRIVINGCONDITIONSWITHSNOWCOLDTEMPERATURES.aspx?ControlMode=Edit&amp;amp;DisplayMode=Design#&quot;&gt;&lt;/span&gt;.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

  35. &lt;div id=&quot;ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_RichHtmlField1__ControlWrapper_RichHtmlField&quot; style=&quot;display:inline&quot;&gt;&lt;span&gt;For Immediate Release: January 2, 2015&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;AF14 -115&lt;/span&gt;
  36. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Starting today, January 2, any required 2015 Assessment Notices will be mailed to property and business owners located in Saskatoon. The total value of the 2015 Property Assessment Roll is approximately $40 billion.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  37. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;The Assessment Notice is not a tax bill. It lets owners know the assessed value of their property, which is then used to determine how much property tax must be paid. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  38. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;Since 2013, property owners have been paying property tax each year based on the value of their property as of January, 2011&lt;span&gt;.&lt;/span&gt; Province-wide revaluations take place in Saskatchewan once every four years. The next province-wide reassessment will take place in 2017.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  39. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;An average single residential property in Saskatoon now has an assessment value of $325,000. ' - Our goal is to create and conduct property assessments that place fair, accurate, and equitable values on properties,' -  City Assessor Les Smith says. ' - Increases or decreases to the amount of property tax a resident owes due to the 2013 revaluation are phased-in over the four year assessment cycle ' - &quot; 2015 marks the third year of the phase-in process,' -  adds Smith.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  40. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;The Customer Assessment Appeal Period runs January 2 until February 6, 2015.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  41. &lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;span&gt;As this is a non-revaluation year, property owners have 30 days to appeal their assessment. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;/DEPARTMENTS/City%20Clerks%20Office/Appeals/Pages/AssessmentAppeals.aspx#q3&quot;&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;Customer Assessment &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;Appeals&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;span&gt; can be made from January 2 until February 6, 2015 by completing the appeal form included with your assessment which can be mailed or delivered with the required fee to:&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  42. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;The &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;Secretary, Board of Revision&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;c/o City Clerk's Office, City Hall&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;222 - 3rd Avenue North&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;Saskatoon, Saskatchewan S7K 0J5 &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  43. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;If any information about a residential property or business premise needs to be changed or updated, or if customers wish to discuss their assessment further, they are encouraged to contact &lt;b&gt;Assessment and Taxation&lt;/b&gt; &lt;b&gt;at &lt;span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;white-space:nowrap&quot; class=baec5a81-e4d6-4674-97f3-e9220f0136c1&gt;306-975-3227 &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;or visit the Assessment and Taxation Division in person at 4-325 Third Ave N, located one block north of City Hall.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;The City of Saskatoon collects property taxes on behalf of the City, the Provincial Government for the Public and Separate School Boards, and the Saskatoon Public Library. Each taxing authority establishes its annual budget, and after taking into consideration other sources of revenue, determines the total revenue required through taxation.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  44. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;Property Tax Notices will be delivered in May 2015, once education rates are determined as part of the provincial budget.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  45. &lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;span&gt;The City uses a valuation approach that ensures property values are a reflection of the fair market value on a given date. &lt;span&gt; &lt;/span&gt;Factors like location (neighbourhood) of the property, traffic patterns around the property, views, and the property structure are all used to determine an assessment value. Adjustments are also made for other factors including size, age, style, garage, etc. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  46. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;Property owners can also find useful market and assessment information about their own property by using the&lt;b&gt; &lt;/b&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;/DEPARTMENTS/Corporate%20Services/Office%20of%20the%20City%20Assessor/Property%20Assessment%20On-line%20Terms%20of%20Use/Pages/default.aspx&quot;&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;Property Assessment &amp;amp; Tax Tool&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;span&gt; located under Online Services on the homepage of &lt;/span&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;/Pages/default.aspx&quot;&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;saskatoon.ca&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;span&gt;,&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt; or by clicking on &lt;b&gt;' - A' - &lt;/b&gt; for &lt;b&gt;Assessment &lt;/b&gt;for more detailed tax information.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

  122. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Two neighbourhoods in Saskatoon will have their blue recycling carts collected on a different day of the week in 2015 ' - &quot; City Park and Exhibition. Changing the recycling routes for these two neighbourhoods will decrease the amount of fuel used by the Loraas Recycle collection trucks and reduce GHG emissions. The garbage collection day remains the same for all neighbourhoods in 2015.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  123. &lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;City Park&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;span&gt; households will have their blue carts collected on Thursday (rather than Wednesday) starting January 8, 2015. The last blue cart collection in 2014 for City Park will be on Wednesday, December 31. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  124. &lt;p&gt;&lt;b&gt;&lt;span&gt;Exhibition &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/b&gt;&lt;span&gt;households will have their blue carts collected on Thursday (rather than Tuesday) starting January 8, 2015. The last blue cart collection in 2014 for Exhibition will be on Tuesday, December 23.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  125. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The change to recycling cart collection day for these two neighbourhoods is reflected in the 2015 Waste and Recycling Calendar, which will arrive in mailboxes around December 24. It is also included on the online version of the 2015 collection calendar at &lt;/span&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;http://www.saskatoonrecycles.ca/&quot;&gt;&lt;span&gt;www.SaskatoonRecycles.ca&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;, where residents can also sign up for to receive handy collections reminders by phone or email. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  126. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Residents in all other neighbourhoods can expect 2015 cart collections to occur on the same days of the week as in 2014.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  127. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Loraas Recycle provides the blue cart recycling service and is available to answer your questions. Just call &lt;span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;span style=&quot;white-space:nowrap&quot; class=baec5a81-e4d6-4674-97f3-e9220f0136c1&gt;(306) 242-2300&lt;a style=&quot;border-bottom:medium none;position:static !important;border-left:medium none;margin:0px;width:16px;bottom:0px;display:inline;white-space:nowrap;float:none;height:16px;vertical-align:middle;overflow:hidden;border-top:medium none;cursor:hand;right:0px;border-right:medium none;top:0px;left:0px&quot; title=&quot;Call: (306) 242-2300&quot; href=&quot;/FORUM/News%20Releases/Pages/CHANGESTOCITYPARKANDEXHIBITIONBLUECARTCOLLECTIONDAYIN2015.aspx?ControlMode=Edit&amp;amp;DisplayMode=Design#&quot;&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;a title=&quot;Call: (306) 242-2300&quot; href=&quot;/FORUM/News%20Releases/Pages/CHANGESTOCITYPARKANDEXHIBITIONBLUECARTCOLLECTIONDAYIN2015.aspx?ControlMode=Edit&amp;amp;DisplayMode=Design#&quot;&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;a title=&quot;Call: (306) 242-2300&quot; href=&quot;/FORUM/News%20Releases/Pages/CHANGESTOCITYPARKANDEXHIBITIONBLUECARTCOLLECTIONDAYIN2015.aspx?ControlMode=Edit&amp;amp;DisplayMode=Design#&quot;&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;a title=&quot;Call: (306) 242-2300&quot; href=&quot;/FORUM/News%20Releases/Pages/CHANGESTOCITYPARKANDEXHIBITIONBLUECARTCOLLECTIONDAYIN2015.aspx?ControlMode=Edit&amp;amp;DisplayMode=Design#&quot;&gt;&lt;/span&gt; or email &lt;/span&gt;&lt;a href=&quot;mailto:[email protected]&quot;&gt;&lt;span&gt;[email protected]&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;span&gt;By recycling paper and packaging, and putting waste in the right place, together we can divert recyclables away from our Landfill and grow a greener Saskatoon.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/div&gt;

  137. &lt;div id=&quot;ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_RichHtmlField1__ControlWrapper_RichHtmlField&quot; style=&quot;display:inline&quot;&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;strong&gt;For immediate release:  December 23, 2014&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;CP14-190               &lt;/span&gt;&lt;u&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/u&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;
  138. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The City of Saskatoon today introduced an expanded 2015 Waste and Recycling Calendar that features all three black, blue and the optional green cart schedules in one easy-to-follow format. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  139. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  140. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Every household will receive in the mail the new calendar outlining the garbage, recycling and yard waste cart collection days specific to their home address. It also provides useful information on how to use and place carts for pick-up, how to subscribe to the optional green cart program ($55 in 2015), as well as other waste recycling and disposal options around the city.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  141. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt; &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;' - This year' - s calendar makes it easy for everyone to participate in the City' - s residential cart programs, including those who subscribe to our green cart service for yard waste,' -  said Brenda Wallace, Director of Environmental &amp;amp; Corporate Initiatives for the City of Saskatoon. ' - The collection schedule for each cart program is now integrated into a single, 12-month calendar which will help citizens avoid the frustration of missed collection days.' - &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  142. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt; &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;A searchable, online version of the calendar is also available to help residents to avoid missed collections. Through SaskatoonRecycles.ca, citizens can search their cart schedules by their home address and also sign up for free collection day reminders by email or phone. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  143. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;In 2015, garbage and recycling will be collected on the same day of the week as in 2014, except in the &lt;b&gt;City Park and Exhibition &lt;/b&gt;neighbourhoods where the &lt;b&gt;recycling&lt;/b&gt; collection day is changing to Thursdays starting January 8. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  144. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  145. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;' - We want to help everyone put waste in the right place and make the most of the City' - s black, blue and the optional green cart programs,' -  said Wallace. ' - The more people who participate, the more we can reduce the amount and type of waste that goes into our Landfill, saving both money and our environment.' - &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  146. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The 2015 Waste and Recycling Calendar will arrive in your mailbox around December 24.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;&lt;/div&gt;

  157. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;strong&gt;For Immediate Release: December 23, 2014&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;CM14-104&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  158. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The City of Saskatoon would like to extend a sincere thank you and best wishes to Marlys Bilanski, who is retiring this week after 35 years of service. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  159. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  160. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;' - To say that Marlys has left an indelible mark on the City would be an understatement.  Hers is a record of solid financial management and prudent fiscal policy,' -  says City Manager, Murray Totland.  ' - One of the reasons that Saskatoon has a AAA credit rating is because of the financial stewardship that Marlys has provided the corporation during her more than three decades of work.' - &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  161. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  162. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;Marlys began her career with the City in 1979 and has worked in a variety of accounting positions, including Budget Manager and City Comptroller.  In 2005, Marlys became the General Manager of Corporate Services, later to become the General Manager of Asset &amp;amp; Financial Management and the City' - s Chief Financial Officer.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  163. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  164. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;In this role, Marlys has worked tirelessly behind the scenes ensuring the dollars were in place so all of the City' - s biggest projects could move from an idea to a reality.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  165. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  166. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;' - Our Corporation' - s strong financial health has been established through the hard work and keen insights of Marlys and her team.  Her wealth of knowledge has been a tremendous asset to the Corporation, and her professionalism, work ethic, and friendship will be missed,' -  says Totland.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  167. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

  181. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The Multi-Unit Recycling Program run by Cosmo Industries, which was recently adopted by City Council, will continue to move ahead.  There were statements in the news and on social media that the Cosmo program was stopped indefinitely.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  182. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  183. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;' - Unfortunately, this information was inaccurate and has led to confusion in the community,' -  says Brenda Wallace, Director of Environmental and Corporate Initiatives. ' - To be clear, Cosmo Industries will continue to collect recyclables from apartment and condo blue bins.' - &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  184. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  185. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The provincial government announced last week that it was ' - adjusting' -  the province-wide Multi-Materials Recycling Program (MMRP), which may have funding implications for the City.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  186. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  187. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;' - &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;The implications of the recent postponement of the MMRP are not yet known,' -  Wallace says.  ' - The Administration will bring options to City Council once a financial impact is confirmed.' - &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

  199. &lt;div id=&quot;ctl00_PlaceHolderMain_RichHtmlField1__ControlWrapper_RichHtmlField&quot; style=&quot;display:inline&quot;&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;strong&gt;For Immediate Release: Tuesday, December 23, 2014&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;TU14-511&lt;/span&gt;
  200. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;The City of Saskatoon is celebrating the spirit of giving at this time of year, and recognizing the Snow Angels who go above and beyond to help fellow neighbours keep sidewalks clear of snow and ice throughout winter.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  201. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  202. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;His Worship, Mayor Donald Atchison today thanked and presented a gift to Glenn Hussey, this month' - s winner of the &lt;a title=&quot;&quot; href=&quot;http://www.buildingbetterroads.ca/snow-angel&quot; target=&quot;_blank&quot;&gt;Snow Angel program' - s prize draw. Mr. Hussey was nominated as a Snow Angel by his neighbours, Peggy and Bob Woods.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  203. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  204. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;' - Twice last month, Glenn appeared with his snow blower and cleared our drive and sidewalk after a heavy snowfall,' -  says Mr. Woods. ' - My wife and I were both times sitting after breakfast trying to raise the energy and determination to do the job ourselves; the sound of his snow blower was both music to our ears and a relief.' -  &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  205. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  206. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;A City bylaw requires residential sidewalks be clear of snow and ice within 48 hours after a snowfall. &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  207. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  208. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;' - &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span lang=EN&gt;Clearing sidewalks quickly after a snowfall makes it easier and safer for people to move around, and a friendly gesture from a neighbour goes a long way in improving accessibility and mobility for everyone,' -  says Colleen McKee, Marketing and Communications Manager for Transportation &amp;amp; Utilities. ' - The City is responsible for clearing sidewalks adjacent to civic facilities, the Meewasin Trail and lit pathways in City parks but we rely on our citizens to help keep people moving around in residential neighbourhoods.' - &lt;/span&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  209. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  210. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;If residents receive help from a neighbour or relative, they can nominate them as a Snow Angel online, or by mailing their name and address to; Public Works, City of Saskatoon, 222 ' - &quot; 3rd Avenue North, S7K 0J5. The City will send them a thank you card signed by His Worship, Mayor Donald Atchison and they' - ll be entered into a draw to win a one-month family pass to any City leisure centre.&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  211. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  212. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;' - Saskatoon is a city full of wonderful people who help each other out; the Snow Angel program embodies the spirit of being good neighbours, which is something we take pride in,' -  says His Worship, Mayor Donald Atchison. ' - Glenn is just one of hundreds of incredible citizens nominated as a Snow Angel each winter, lending a hand to make Saskatoon a great place to live.' -  &lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
  213. &lt;p&gt;&lt;span&gt;&lt;/span&gt;&lt;/p&gt;
