Trails society aims to fight Rossland funding cut

The Kootenay Columbia Trail Society (KCTS) is hoping that Rossland will come out in support of its services tomorrow night.

In a recent draft budget, the city has shown that the funding for the society could be cut entirely.

Currently, the city provides $19,000 per year to KCTS, which goes to maintenance of the expansive trail networks around Rossland.

That funding provides about a quarter of the society's operating budget.

KCTS members have promised a packed council chambers in support of the society Wednesday night.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at city hall.
