Keep your distance!
The City of St. Albert has a wide range of equipment that is used by staff to provide programs, services and events to residents of and visitors to our community. This equipment is used to maintain our infrastructure in good condition, make improvements or keep things clean and tidy.
While some of this work happens behind the scenes, a great deal of equipment is operated in public on streets, sidewalks and trails, or in City facilities, parks and parking lots. The City is committed to operating its equipment safely and efficiently but needs your help to avoid accidents that might cause serious injury or even death!
When you see City staff operating equipment, please stay back to keep everyone safe. It is dangerous for pedestrians, cyclists or motorists to come too close to equipment when it is in operation. Examples include snowplows, graders, sanders and snow removal machines in the winter. In the summer (when it finally graces us with its presence), we need to watch out for weed-eaters, lawn mowers and watering trucks.
If you have questions for City staff, it is much safer to call us – please don’t approach staff operating equipment! Contact Public Works at 780-459-1557 and we’ll put you in touch with the right person.
