YBID Board Membership

How Do I Become A Board Member?

Every year YBID Board membership is renewed, and submitted to the City of Yorkton for approval.  To be a YBID Board member an individual or business must fit the following criteria:

  • You must own a business or commercial property that resides within the Yorkton Business Improvement District (YBID) boundaries.  Residential property owners are not eligible for YBID Board participation, as the YBID tax levies are NOT assessed on residential properties.
  • You must operate a business or commercial entity that physically resides within the YBID boundaries.  Any business with a physical presence in the district utilizing rented or leased property within the YBID district, financially contribute to the operations of YBID either directly or indirectly through the Yorkton Business Improvement District Levy.
  • You must be willing to serve a term of no less than one year.
  • You must be willing to attend all meetings and serve at the pleasure of his Worship, The Mayor of Yorkton.
