- The provisions of Section 4 of this Bylaw do not apply to an emergency vehicle, or work on a City street or public utility carried on by a City Department, SaskPower, SaskTel, or to a contractor working for these companies.
- The use of power tools is prohibited between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m. (refer to the bylaw for list of tools).

- No person shall allow a diesel motor to remain running longer than 15 minutes in any location within 500 feet of a residential zone.
