The Roslyn City Council approved four contracts Tuesday night to help fund a fire break north of town, which was constructed earlier this month. Over Labor Day weekend, ember showers from the Jolly Mountain Fire were forecast to come down around Roslyn, which prompted an urgent need for a new fire break. A state of emergency declared by Mayor Brent Hals allowed the city to waive the competitive bidding process and purchase services, material and equipment necessary to address emergency situations. The contracts were with Wyss Logging, Gibson and Sons Road Building, PAW LLC and C. Renfro and Sons.
