After weeks of negotiations Trail and Rossland have not been able to come to a deal on shared recreation.
It means Rosslanders will still be charged double the going rate to access Trail’s facilities, although the Alpine City will now expand its current subsidy program to help off-set those extra costs to its residents.
Rossland Mayor Kathy Moore says it’s a very complex financial issue with her community making the point that Trail has Teck to help pay big taxes.
In the end the two communities were about $40,000 a year apart on a deal.
Moore says the talks remained friendly and they’re both eager to work on other shared regional challenges.
