Mayor Sarah Caron

The Watertown City Council earlier this week approved what's called a sidewalk business promotion. The approval by the council will now allow downtown businesses to display their merchandise on their sidewalks, something that is normally prevented by ordinance, as long as the city's emergency resolution remains in place. 

Watertown Mayor Sarah Caron..... 

The mayor says the idea is to make the shopping experience a little more inviting to the public….. 

The city is also allowing businesses to make curb reservations....  

If you are a business owner and are in need of a permit you can contact Watertown City Hall at (605) 882- 6200.
