**ROSSLAND CITY HALL PARTIAL ROOF COLLAPSE UPDATE**

We have currently re-located “City Hall Operations” to the upstairs portion of the Miners’ Hall (Lilly May / Green Rooms).  Council meetings will be held in the Performance Hall space on the main floor.  We are planning on remaining in this location until we determine where a more-suitable longer-term relocation of City Hall may be – where activities for this is currently well underway.  More details on this initiative will be provided once we have some additional information.
 
The existing City Hall building is currently not in use.  It has been shovelled off to help prevent further shifting.  A sump pump was also installed on the roof in a depression of the failure area to help prevent any further water damage to the building.  Also, recently conducted snow load testing activities found the following results:  City Hall Roof – 65 lbs/ sq ft and Museum Roof 85 lbs / sq ft.

Please note that for the immediate future and until further notice, City Hall operations has been temporarily relocated to the Miners’ Hall building, located at 1765 Columbia Avenue, Rossland BC. http://www.rossland.ca/facilities/miners-hall

City Hall Partial Roof Collapse Update

City representatives have now met with both WorkSafeBC and a structural engineer to complete an initial structural assessment of the damage at the City Hall building and to review the possible options available.


The initial findings have shown that the front portion of the building, the reception and recreation office areas, are unsafe and therefore currently cannot be accessed.  However, as the rest of the building has been deemed structurally sound, the City is focused on setting up temporary offices for those displaced staff in order to continue to provide core services for the community over the coming weeks.
