Glenn Wisema and Jeannette Wheeler have been appointed to the Yorkton Housing Authority Board of Directors. Other members of the board of directors are Vern Brown, Loreen Poier, Erin Clifford, Kenneth Atkinson and Brenda Walsh. Brown is chairperson.
The Yorkton Housing Authority is a community-based organization that provides daily management of 315 housing units constructed and operated under the terms of a federal provincial municipal cost sharing agreement.
Social Services Minister, June Draude, paid tribute to the volunteers who manage the social housing projects in their community. “This local hands-on approach ensures that the Saskatchewan Housing Corporation responds effectively to the needs of each community.”
Saskatchewan has a network of 271 housing authorities and more than 1,400 volunteer members who assist with management of housing units throughout the province for seniors, low income families and persons with disabilities.
Persons interested in volunteering to serve on the board of directors for the Yorkton Housing Authority are encouraged to contact the mayor of Yorkton. A local nominating committee recommends board members.
Applications for accommodation are available from the manager of the Yorkton Housing Authority.
