Rossland residents have chance for input on Trail Aquatic Centre

Rossland residents have a chance to get their opinion out on what the city should do in regards to the Trial Aquatic Centre.

Rossland residents have a chance to get their opinion out on what the city should do in regards to the Trial Aquatic Centre.

At the moment, Rossland residents pay double the fee of any other municipality, because of the city’s refusal to pay the amount that Trail is asking.

The plebiscite asks whether Rossland residents and taxpayers support council to make financial contributions through property taxation for the use of the aquatic centre.

The plebiscite also intends to find out how many Rossland residents intend to use the facility, to decide whether it’s worth paying the fees.

The plebiscite won’t bind council, but would be used in decision making.

To vote, you must be a Rossland resident and on the voter’s list.

Go to City Hall or visit www.rossland.ca for more information.
