Yukon is a city in eastern Canadian County, Oklahoma, United States. It is part of the Oklahoma City Metropolitan Area. The population was 22,709 at the 2010 census. Historically, Yukon served as an urban center for area farmers and the site of a large milling. The town was named in reference to a town in Yukon Territory, Canada, at the time. This form of government is called a "council" or a "town" It is considered primarily a residential community for people who work in Oklahoma City. The city was named for the Yukon River which flows from British Columbia, and into Alaska. This type of town is known as a "city" or "metropolitan area" The town voted to incorporate in 1901 and voted to sign a contract with the city of Oklahoma City, which is called "the city" or the "metropolis" The city had 25 homes, one bank, two restaurants, a grocery, two saloons, and a second bar shop when he decided to build the town. He had agreed to do so and lay the train through the town in exchange for half of the town, which were owned by Minnie Taylor and Luther S. Morrison. Spencer also bought two quarter sections south of Main Street from Joseph Carson and his sister, Josephine. Spencer and his brother, Lewis, named the town after the Yuko Territory of Canada. Spencer filed the sign on the townsite on February 14, 1891, and signed a contract to build it.

History

Yukon was founded by A.N. Spencer in 1891 and was named for the Yukon River. The town voted to incorporate in 1901 and voted to add water works, sewer, and electricity from the mill in 1910. In 1949, Yukon garnered national media attention because of the plight of Grady the Cow, who was stuck inside a silo for four days. Yukon is known as the "Czech Capital of Oklahoma" and the students of Yukon High School are known as "Millers" The town had grown to approximately 22,000 residents in 2005. Oklahoma City annexed nearly all of the land around Yukon during the 1960s. This brought a boom in residential construction and commercial development. The population of the town grew to 1,990 by 1950, and to 3,076 by 1960. The Yukon Mill and Grain Company, opened in 1893 and grew to shipping flour and feeds throughout the south and exporting them overseas by 1915. The milling operation was owned by the Kroutil and Dobry families, but the Dobry family built their own mill and parted ways with the Kr outils in the 1930s. The mills were sold to larger corporations; Shawnee Mills and Mid-Continent purchased the YukON Mill. Paying homage to that history, the students at Yukon high school are known for their mascot, "The Miller Man", and their mascot is "TheMiller Man". Yukon has a population of about 22,500.

Government

Yukon is divided into four geographical wards and one at-large ward. A representative from each Ward are the five members of the City Council. The voters of each Ward elect a council member to represent them and the Mayor is elected yearly by council. The Mayor and Council appoint a City Manager to serve as the City's chief administrative official. The mayor and council also appoint the City Attorney and Municipal Court judges. The City Manager has broad authority to run the organization. The Council-Manager government combines the strong political leadership of elected officials with the strong managerial experience of an appointed manager. All authority to set policy rests with a nonpartisan Mayor and City Council and the governing body in turn hires a nonpartisan manager who has broad power to run an organization. This form of government has been in use in Yukon for more than 100 years. It was first used in the city's history in the 19th century. It is the only city in the state to have a Council- manager government. It has been used since the early 20th century, when it was formed by a group of citizens who wanted to form a non-partisan government. The current council-manager government was formed in the late 1980s. The city has been run by the same group of people for the past 20 years, with the exception of the past two years when a new council was elected. The new council has been formed to replace the previous council. It will be the first time in the history of Yukon that the City has had a Council and Manager government.
