City Mayor's Blog

I am very proud to be the first Mayor for the City of Warman.

From the first time I came to visit Warman over 30 years ago it has been very apparent Warman's charm comes from it's people.  The residents of Warman welcomed my family back then, and they continue to share their friendly community with all who come to live here or visit this fine City.  I am pleased to  have this kind of oppurtunity to share on a monthly basis, the good news and positive actions taking place in our community, the City of Warman.  Grab a cup of coffee and read on what is current and happening in the City of Warman.

What a Wonderful Winter!

Hello all,


From the deep freeze to mild temperatures - this January stands out as one of the most astounding that I can remember. No reason to stay cooped up; go out and enjoy this amazingly picturesque and warm winter weather!

Here we are approaching the end of January, and already a month of 2017 has slipped by. The New Year has seen some changes for the City of Warman, in Council, in Staff, and around this bustling community.

With the introduction of our new traffic lights, we have seen a more effective and safe way to move traffic through busy intersections - although it has taken many of us some time to get used to the change. Please watch for the ‘red’ and ‘green’ while you are passing through those busy intersections. Speed limits have also changed to help with traffic flow. These include an increase to 50 km/h on Central and Centennial Drive, and 40 km/h on every other street other than school zones.  We now have consistency throughout the community. The next step of the Transportation Master Plan is to look at signage around the city. We will be looking to de-clutter street corners with more direct signage, and also to look at the placements of stop signs and yield signs for ease of travel around Warman.

Our city continues to be extremely busy with events that welcome many visitors to the community, and our other activities that keep us all busy through the winter months. I love to see the packed parking lots and the energy that comes from all this activity. Lots of work and time go into creating that great buzz around Warman, and we appreciate all the efforts of everyone involved. When you look around the community and see all the young athletes who have emerged, you know you have a dedicated group of volunteers and parents who are committed in keeping children active.

The new schools have now been named.  Traditions Elementary School and Holy Trinity Catholic School are on track for opening to students in September 2017.  Speaking of schools - I have had the chance to visit many of our students in Warman Elementary, Warman Community Middle School, and Warman High School.  I am so impressed with the community engagement I see in all our classrooms and with our children. The questions and suggestions these young people raise are so relevant and real to what is happening in our community. They raised concerns about jaywalking, attracting new businesses, recreation plans, and even questions about health care. These students are really tuned-in!

It truly brings me joy to see the level of engagement our citizens have, at all ages.

To all the parents, the teachers, the volunteers out there: as you inspire and encourage those you encounter along the way – remember that we all have something to offer. We are all unique snowflakes, different in our own beautiful way. Let us recognize and celebrate how we all contribute to our shared world.
