The City of

  • Provide and plan for stable and controlled economic development within the city
  • Controlled growth of the community and preservation of quality of life

 The City of Yerington’s motto is “Providing for progressive government and general welfare of the public”.  In order to accomplish our mission and live up to our motto, city employees are required to be proficient in a vast array of professions such as management, judicial, law enforcement, clerk, bookkeeping, park maintenance, building inspection, planning, zoning, aviation services, plumbing, carpentry, electrician, equipment operation, and road construction and maintenance.  This day and age however, proficiency alone is not enough and attitudes need to change to a mind-set that says, “What was good enough for yesterday will not be good enough for tomorrow, and I need to do something a little better each day”. 


Vision Statement

Yerington consists of the mayor, city council, management team, municipal court, police department, public works and all other administrative functions of a local government.  Both city officials and employees, alike, make use of this vision statement to remain focused on the city’s core values and to stay in touch with what the primary functions and responsibilities of the city are.


We value, respect, appreciate, support and encourage input from each tax-paying citizen in our city and we strive to be acknowledged by them as “accommodating and enthusiastic” about the operations and management of city government.
