  • Apr. 9, 2015 4:00 p.m.

On Sunday, April 12 at 4-6 p.m., Rossland City Council is inviting the public to the Miner’s Hall to learn about the Rossland budget for 2015 and beyond and how their input is helping shape decisions at City Hall.

The event will be split into two parts. The first half will look at 2015 and where the city is in the budgeting process including how the public input and results of the Thoughtexchange project have helped shape the current version. The second half will be used to look ahead to the future and explore the opportunities and challenges coming in 2016 and beyond.

The event will be very interactive with opportunities to share questions, concerns and ideas for Council to consider as they move forward in addressing our capital management challenges through the budgeting and planning process.

“We hope to have a great turnout on April 12,” says Mayor Kathy Moore. “The community has shared many thoughts and priorities and this input has been valuable for council as we make hard decisions about the budget. At this event we want to share back what we’ve learned and where we are now. The budget process for 2015 is nearly complete and we want to make sure everyone understands what changes we’ve made for this year and we also want to start the conversation about what changes we anticipate for the future.”

Bring a friend and come out to the Miner’s Hall on Sunday to support the future of our city.
