City of Fernie

I found myself this past week thinking a lot about the definition of civility, how tenuous it is and how our community is the owner of it. Civility can tear as easy as tissue paper.

The City of Fernie has received grant funding from the B.C. Active Transportation Infrastructure Grants Program to use towards completing an Active Transportation Network Plan (ATNP).

With the arrival of warmer day time temperatures and an anticipated seasonal rise in creeks and rivers, a series of self-fill sandbag stations has been established around the region. 

At the Regular Meeting of Council held on May 11, 2020, City of Fernie Council approved the 2020 budget, 2020 tax rates, and Five-Year Financial Plan.

The 2020 budget is built around a zero-percent tax increase in recognition of the significant challenges our residents and businesses are facing this year.

Many businesses woke up to an alternate reality this month, wondering how they would even survive the impact of Covid-19, trying to see a path through nothing but uncertainty. Unlike other business however, distillers found themselves stepping into an arena they had never considered for no other reason than they felt a moral obligation to serve the immediate needs of Canadians by producing hand sanitizer.
