Sister cities informed

The City of Vernon will let its five sister cities know there is now a new mayor and council.

There are no secrets in the family.

The City of Vernon will let each of its five sister cities know that there was an election in November and there is now a new mayor and council.

Steps are also being taken to make local residents and tourists aware of Vernon’s international relationships.

Council has approved signage at the tourist information centre that will identify each sister city.

Vernon’s sister cities are Modesto, California; Tome, Japan, Frankenburg, Austria; Saint-Lambert, Quebec and Tavullia, Italy.

A sign outside of city hall provides distances to each community.
