Need to Know: Remembrance Day Ceremonies, Street Sweeping, Covid
Regina will only have one Remembrance Day Ceremony this year as the one at the Brandt Centre is being cancelled due to Covid-19.
The ceremony at the Cenotaph in Victoria Park will continue with 150 in attendance following health guidelines.
Access Communications will do a live broadcast from the Cenotaph live.
Fall Sweep Begins in Select Neighbourhoods
Residents living in the Crescents, Cathedral, Lakeview and General Hospital areas are encouraged to watch for signs and visit Regina.ca/sweep to know when their streets will be swept. Parking off-street and sharing driveways with neighbours allows the sweeper to access curbs, parking lanes and catch basins to pick up leaves and reduce neighbourhood drainage issues.
Starting today, City crews will begin the fall sweep program in the identified neighbourhoods between 4 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, and is expected to be complete by November 4, weather dependent.
