City Council consists of a Mayor and six Councillors, elected for a term of four years beginning in 2012.  To be eligible to run for Mayor or Councillor of Yorkton, a person must be a Canadian citizen, at least eighteen years of age, and have lived in the City of Yorkton for at least three months and in the Province of Saskatchewan for six months immediately preceding the day of the election.  The only people not allowed to run for Office are judges of a court or an auditor or solicitor of a municipality.

The Province of Saskatchewan, through The Cities Act and, to a lesser extent, The Planning and Development Act, 2007 sets out the powers of municipal governments.

City Council has no powers regarding education, other than collecting taxes on behalf of the Public and Separate School Boards.

The Mayor is the Chief Executive Officer of the City.  The City Manager is the Chief Administrative Officer of the City and is in charge of day-to-day City operations and employees.

City Council meets on the second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:00 p.m. in Council Chambers at City Hall, except for July, August and December, when there is only one meeting. Please see the 2016 Council Meeting Calendar for specific meeting dates.
