The City of Rossland's new brand.

Council rolls up sleeves

Rossland council will tackle the museum gateway project, branding, crime statistics and the smoking bylaw tonight (7 p.m).

City council will be grappling with several old issues when they meet tonight (7 p.m.) in City council chambers.

The Rossland Museum Gateway project will be debated, as the museum bids for a renovation. City staff is recommending council approve the site, facility, operational and sustainability plan request for proposal.

As well, the Rossland-wide branding project is on the agenda. This will change the City’s wordmark, and City staff is recommending the new design. The new design would appear on all City of Rossland materials—website, letterhead, email, signatures, business cards and fleet stickers.

There will be a delegation from Sgt. Rob Hawton of the RCMP, presenting the crime statistics report for 2012.

Council will also take first stab at the bylaw to prohibit smoking in all public parks, playgrounds and restaurant patios with the city limits.
