Gas Tax: 2017 Strategic Priorities Fund Update

We are please to announce that the Rossland Public Library Renewal Project has been recently approved $80,9000 under the Strategic Priorities Fund. 
 
This renovation project consists of meeting the needs of the community with an enlarged children's area and more places for folk to read, study and work. We are incredibly excited to move toward making this the fabulous library Rossland deserves.
 
“Communities need good infrastructure to thrive,” said Katrine Conroy, MLA for Kootenay West and B.C. Minister for Children and Family Development. "The Rossland Library is already an asset to the community but this investment will make it even better. We’re grateful to this partnership between the city, province and federal government for making this funding commitment."
 

 

**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.
