Warman, Saskatchewan Is Province's Newest City


WARMAN, Sask. - Another name has been added to the list of Saskatchewan cities.

A proclamation was signed Saturday to make Warman the province's 16th community to be incorporated as a city.

Warman, located just a few kilometres north of Saskatoon, has a population of just over 7,000 people.

It takes a minimum population of 5,000 to become a city in Saskatchewan.

Mayor Sheryl Spence told a proclamation signing ceremony that she feels privileged and honoured to be head of the City of Warman council.

Warman was founded as a village in 1906 and was incorporated as a town 60 years later. (CKOM)
