Broadly speaking

City council will hear from the Broadband Task Force on moving the project ahead in the city.

Broadband will be the main topic of discussion for City council when they sit down for their regular council meeting tonight, 7 p.m., in City council chambers.

Council will entertain a delegation from the Broadband Task Force as they provide an update on the project and will be requesting financial support to acquire the Fortis pole permits necessary to start implementing the broadband project.

Larry Doell, the co-chair of the 2013 Winter Carnival committee, will be addressing council on the success of the Winter Carnival and the social and economic benefits to the city.

The City’s designation as a carbon neutral community will also be discussed, and City staff will be bringing forward a recommendation to allocate funds to a climate action reserve fund.

As well, the designer of the Rossland-wide branding project is coming back with four designs for council’s approval.
