Again, this week’s downtown ‘look’ will be very similar to last week’s.  More blasting took place on Monday, June 25, to remove bedrock discovered earlier in the project and to make room for the installation of water and storm systems to St Paul from Washington Street.

Copcan will be giving their crew a well-deserved break of four days over the long weekend, so Friday to Monday will be very quiet days in downtown Rossland.  The Mayor has written and hand-delivered a letter for the Copcan crew, thanking them for their hard work and professionalism.

The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) “Random Acts of Culture” project is underway featuring “Reconstructing Rossland”.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to participate!  For more information, please see the website www.rosslandcac.com and drop off your submissions at the Rouge Gallery by June 30.

“The Mayor is In”: Mayor Granstrom will be holding weekly office hours, welcoming drop-in visits to him at Rossland City Hall from 10:30-11:30 every Tuesday.

Please contact us at columbiaproject@rossland.ca with your comments, concerns, ideas, or questions. The phone number for technical questions and concerns is 250-362-2328.
