Members of the Yorkton Chamber of Commerce joined today (Wed) to discuss the state of the City of Yorkton.
Mayor Bob Maloney says he is happy with the state of the city.
“From a financial point of view, the City of Yorkton is in really good shape,” Maloney stated. “Our debt-to-resources ratio is where it should be. We’re in good shape to invest in something if we need to, and there are a number of things out there.
“The council of the day looked at a new hospital coming our way in a few years, so we thought it was prudent not to spend a lot of money because that’s a 150-million dollar project, of which we’d get 20 percent of that number.”
Maloney added 5 new businesses were opened in 2017, with an additional 700 thousand dollars of new money being brought in.
