City Hall Partial Roof Collapse Update

City representatives have now met with both WorkSafeBC and a structural engineer to complete an initial structural assessment of the damage at the City Hall building and to review the possible options available.

The initial findings have shown that the front portion of the building, the reception and recreation office areas, are unsafe and therefore currently cannot be accessed.  However, as the rest of the building has been deemed structurally sound, the City is focused on setting up temporary offices for those displaced staff in order to continue to provide core services for the community over the coming weeks.

Although we plan to be operationally functional within the next few days, City Hall remains unsuitable for public access.  As a result, City Hall will remain closed to the public for the balance of this week.  By Friday, March 9, 2018, the City will have more information and better able to determine the short-to-medium term plan for City Hall operations.

Citizens of the City of Rossland requiring immediate assistance should feel free to call the City Hall main switchboard at 250-362-7396 and select the appropriate department where we will endeavour to attend to your service request as soon as possible or arrange a meeting at our earliest available time. 

In order for the City to be able to respond to the current backlog of enquiries, we ask that you only contact City Hall if an emergency arises.  For general requests or to make payments to the City, please visit our website at
