Rossland wants input on dogs and smoking issues

Rossland’s new downtown may be finished, but the conversation on dogs in the downtown and smoking in public places is just beginning.

Rossland’s new downtown may be finished, but the conversation on dogs in the downtown and smoking in public places is just beginning.

The city recently sent out a pamphlet to residents of Rossland asking for input on the proposals to amend the Animal Control Bylaw No. 2357, to allow leashed dogs to be accompanied downtown.

The dog portion of the questions asks whether you would like to see the bylaw amended to allow the dogs downtown, if you think dogs should be allowed downtown and if dogs should be allowed to be tied up downtown.

The survey also asks for input on whether the city should regulate smoking in Harry LeFevre Square.

The questions are:

Should smoking be banned from Harry LeFevre Square?

Should Smoking only be regulated in the square during special events (e.g. Winter Carnival)?

Should an outdoor ashtray be installed in Harry LeFevre Square to keep the area clean of cigarette butts?

Should a No-smoking bylaw apply to all city parks, trails and gathering places?

It also leaves room for comments in both sections.

Council agreed to put out the survey to gauge the public on these issues, prior to holding public input sessions and town hall meetings.

So if you’re in favour or opposed to either of the measures, now is your chance to let the City know.

The survey can also be done online here.
