At the meeting Council was asked about concerns being raised about developing unsafe confrontations taking place on Main Street. Mayor Cal Huntley said they are aware of the problem but all he can say for now is they are looking at initiatives and meeting with the RCMP and other interested parties on how to deal with the issue. He added they need to find the root of the problem and focus our resources there.
In other business Council reported after discussion on the Pride Committees request for a rainbow cross walk in front of City Hall they could not put a permanent rainbow cross walk on a provincial highway but felt one could be put across Main Street. Councilor Colleen McKee said she was concerned about ongoing maintenance while Councilor Karen MacKinnon felt it would mean more if it was temporary and renewed every year during Pride Week. The Committee’s Jordana Oulette agreed on a temporary one for this year and to look at it further as a permanent rainbow crosswalk would show that Pride is year round in Flin Flon.
