The City of Saskatoon’s organizational structure was re-aligned in January 2019.  The new structure does not totally align with respect to some of the current Area Vice Presidents’ roles.   As a reminder for the Area Vice President positions, you must work in the area in which you are submitting a nomination form, and only people working in, for example, Police & Fire Protection can vote for the Area Vice President of Police & Fire Protection. Areas up for election are Police & Fire Protection as well as Community Services (except Parks) and these areas have not changed.  Community Services (except Parks) includes: Planning and Development, Building Standards, Community Standards, Recreation & Community Development.
