City solicitor Patricia Warick told a meeting of the executive committee that the options are no observance, or a moment of silence or a general message of giving thanks.
Warick will take the policy back for further review.
Last December, a Saskatoon man complained about "Merry Christmas" being flashed on city transit buses.
Ashu Solo has filed a complaint with the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission alleging the message violates separation of religion and state and discriminates against non-Christians.
Solo has said he is "offended and angered'' that his tax money is funding city buses that promote a religion he doesn't believe in.
Solo describes himself as an atheist.
