On August 14, 2017 Council received a report from the late Lloyd Smith, our Director of Leisure Services on the condition of our public works building. For those of us in the room, it was startling. 

“A number of buildings located at the public works yard have not been maintained adequately over the last thirty years. In 2016, the Quonset building was decommissioned after engineers identified structural issues. These issues had been previously outlined in a report completed and supplied to the City in 1997 but were never addressed.” 

The City of Fernie is pleased to support our local food-service providers by promoting pop-up COVID-safe dining options throughout the city.  Picnic tables will be installed on 6th Street, the Station Square parking lot, on City Hall grounds starting on May 21st in time for the May long weekend.
