Nelson City Council will move its regular meeting tonight up the street to the fire hall.

Tonight’s council meeting to be held at Nelson fire hall

Rather than convening at City Hall, council will head up the street to Nelson Fire Hall, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary.

Nelson City Council is holding its meeting tonight in a special location.

Rather than convening at City Hall, council will head up the street to Nelson Fire Hall, which is currently celebrating its 100th anniversary.

Council meetings, held twice monthly on Mondays, begin at 7 p.m. and are open to the public. Agendas are posted on the city’s website the Friday before each meeting.

This week’s agenda includes a special visit by representatives from Sandpoint, Idaho who are expected to sign an official Municipal Partnership Agreement, which will formally recognize Nelson and Sandpoint as sister cities.

Then, members of the local postal workers union will make a presentation to council titled “saving our public post office.”

Finally, city staff will introduce the Nelson’s 2012 Annual Report, the Statement of Financial Information, and a progress report how it’s spent its Strategic Community Investment Funds. Council will be asked to accept the three reporters and have copies forwarded to BC’s ministry of community, sport and cultural development to fulfill mandatory reporting requirements.

Every meeting also includes a public participation period, during which members of the public can provide council with information they think is relevant to items on the agenda.

Council meetings generally last around two hours.
