Every year, the City of Saskatoon produces its Service, Savings and Sustainability (SSS) Report. The report focuses on the preceding calendar year and highlights the ways City employees worked to capture savings, enhance services for residents, and make improvements in the area of sustainability.

“The theme of the 2021 report is 2021: Resilience & Readiness,” says Celene Anger, the City’s Chief Strategy and Transformation Officer. “We wanted to tell the story of how we worked together to continue delivering and improving programs and services in the second year of a global pandemic, all while working to keep residents and staff safe.”

Initiatives featured in the 2021 report include:

  • Doubling minor sidewalk repairs
  • City Hall Lobby reconfigured to prioritize customer experience
  • Improvements to Saskatoon.ca to make it more mobile friendly
  • Reintroduction of prescribed fires to help ecological health
  • LED street light upgrade completed
  • Solid Waste Reduction & Diversion Plan unveiled
  • Facility improvements to increase energy efficiency
  • Use of recycled asphalt
  • ePermitting improvements for building and development permits

The 2021 Service, Savings and Sustainability (SSS) Report reflects the City’s year-over-year commitment to find savings, explore and take on new challenges, and find practical, forward-thinking solutions to meet the changing needs of the community.

“At the City of Saskatoon, we have a strong commitment to continuous improvement and are always looking for new ways to improve performance and deliver value for taxpayer dollars,” says Anger.

The 2021 SSS Report will be presented as an information item at the Governance and Priorities Committee meeting on Monday, July 18. The report is available now at saskatoon.ca/SSSreport.
