Yorkton city council decides against proclamations for special days or weeks

Events or organizations looking for Yorkton city council to make proclamations designating special days or weeks are out of luck.

Council recently made the decision to end the practice and implemented the new procedure at their meeting earlier this week.

Organizations are still more than welcome to make presentations to council, but the city is no longer in the business of making proclamations.

The new process saves time during council meetings. Often there may be three or four proclamation requests at the same meeting.
