At the Flin Flon City Council meeting last night Mayor Cal Huntley said Council will forgo for the immediate future the plastic bag ban they have been developing since with the current COVID-19 situation you can’t take your own shopping bags into stores.
Council received the Fire Chiefs report for March indicating five incidents including assistance to Emergency Services, a fire in a pot on a stove, a snowmobile fire, an electric baseboard heater fire and a leaking water heater tripping a breaker.
Council received a letter from the United Steelworkers local 7106 advising due to COVID-19 they will not be holding their annual Day of Mourning ceremony. They ask businesses around town to lower their flags at half mast on that day April 28th. The Steelworkers will be laying a wreath in Flin Flon and Snow Lake to honor men and women who have been killed or injured at work and ask people to take a moment of silence for all those that have been lost.
