Council Newsletter - November 2017

Message from Mayor Kathy:
Many thanks to the Legion for hosting our annual
Remembrance Day celebration. It was a moving event with an
excellent turnout at the cenotaph. I was also invited to attend
the veterans’ dinner and enjoyed the delicious cooking of the
Legion Auxiliary. It was an honor to share a meal with our local
veterans and sobering to see how small the group has become
over the years.
Our Chief Administrative Officer, Bryan Teasdale and I were
invited to speak at the BC Asset Management conference in
Vancouver. It was a very interesting conference. Our
presentation focused on how a small town like Rossland has
been able to take steps to manage our city assets in a planned
and fiscally prudent manner. Asset management is a journey,
not a destination and we are working towards establishing our
policies, creating our inventory, calculating lifecycle costs and
linking it all to our financial planning process. It’s not a shortterm
project but it will provide long-term benefits.
I was invited to participate in a panel discussion about women
in power at the Women in Business luncheon in Trail. What a
dynamic group! I am happy to say that Rossland is well
represented by a group of very talented and energetic women
entrepreneurs in the Lower Columbia area. Ladies, you rock!
I am happy to announce that Kim Deane has been selected to
receive the coveted Senate of Canada 150 Medal. On behalf
of Senator Nancy Greene Raines, the medal will be presented
at our December 14th council meeting at 6pm. Everyone is
welcome to attend. Kim is being honoured for his years of
dedication to the development of outdoor recreation, on
projects such as his work to establish the Rossland Recreation
Area, the Friends of the Rossland Range and the Seven
Summits Trail. Of course, Kim modestly views this as an award
to the whole community and he is correct; countless volunteers
have been involved over the years.
