CALGARY (660 NEWS) – Thousands of brightly-coloured ribbon decals are being stuck on City of Calgary vehicles this week to say thank you to essential workers.

Five thousand blue, green and orange decals were donated by local businesses.

The commemorative ‘ribbons’ will be displayed on everything from street sweepers to fire trucks until the end of July.

Councillor Shane Keating says they needed a public, noticeable way to express their deepest gratitude to the individuals working on the front line and providing Calgarians with the essential services necessary to the well-being of Calgary.

“Many of these people are our colleagues at The City; they supply us with clean water, fix our roads, provide our utilities, ensure our homes are working properly, and keep store shelves stocked,” said Keating.
