Fernie RCMP Detachment

Council has made a request with the Ministry of Justice to meet with an “E” Division representative at the upcoming UBCM Conference to discuss cell retrofit for the Fernie detachment as the existing cells have been decommissioned, as well a time line for the Rural Policing Study

5th Street and Highway #3 Intersection

Council for the City of Fernie have contacted the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure requesting the ministry to remove the pedestrian crosswalk paint and the crossing signage at the intersection of Highway #3 and 5th Street.

This transportation corridor is a very busy stretch of highway and there have been several witnessed incidents with both vehicles and pedestrians at this intersection.

Council would like to direct the pedestrian traffic to use the signal controlled crossings at 4th Street and 7th Street to ensure the safety of our citizens and visitors alike.

Development process – Task Force

Council will investigate the creation of a task force to look into the impediments, barriers and opportunities for development in Fernie as well recommend process improvements resulting from its findings.

Issues with skunks in Fernie

Council allocated a budget of $1500 dollars for contracted services to deal with skunk complaints on private property, subject to confirmation of the city’s lawful authority to do so.
