City Launches Let’s Talk Fernie Engagement Platform

The City of Fernie is pleased to announce the launch of its new online engagement platform, Let’s Talk Fernie. The community is invited to register at to share their ideas and opinions, review projects, and see the most up-to-date information on City initiatives.

“It’s important to us to provide a positive, productive space for dialogue with and among the community,” Mayor Qualizza said. “This platform is another tool to facilitate those discussions, especially as we continue to remain physically distant from one another. Let’s Talk Fernie is the next step following re-opening Council meetings to public participation in our efforts toward enhanced engagement and responsiveness.”

Visitors to the site can browse projects and opportunities to contribute their thoughts, including a community forum to discuss the effects of COVID-19 and the Fall 2020 Citizen Satisfaction Survey. Registration is required to participate. Michael Boronowski, the City’s Chief Administrative Officer, noted, “Let’s Talk Fernie is an extension of our social media presence and complements the City’s website by allowing for constructive, intentional conversations about what’s happening in and around Fernie. Council and staff are engaging in these conversations to help inform priorities and decision-making, particularly as we enter into our 2021 budget cycle. We want to encourage people to register and have their voices heard.”
