Yorkton has started a city-wide water meter replacement program. Over the next year, you will be contacted to upgrade the water meter at your property.

Project schedule

Installation will run from late July - December 2021. Meters will be changed out on a location by location basis. You will be notified by direct mail when you are to book your meter install appointment. Both residential and commercial properties are required to book their new meter install.

Leashing and "Running At Large"

Posted on Tuesday, September 21, 2021 03:10 PM

In Yorkton, you must keep all dogs on a leash whenever they are on any property other than your own - unless you are at a designated "leash free" area.

You are responsible for making sure that your dogs do not "run at large". A dog "running at large" means that it is unleashed, off its owner's property and not under its owner's control. 

We have designated Wiggley Field a "leash free" area. We encourage you to use this area whenever you want to exercise your dog off its leash.
