At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council gave final reading to a bylaw amendment that will allow for an increase in your utility bill of 30 percent after receiving approval from the Public Utilities Board for the increase. The increase is due to the startup of the water treatment plant. It will result in an increase from $214.82 to $279.24 per quarter.
Council heard from two residents of the Trailer Court reacting to Councils proposed change to the Trailer Court bylaw to allow complaints of ongoing nuisance noise to be dealt with through a list of fines under the persistent noise rules. The residents noted a small number of those living there have complained about noise adding they had presented a petition earlier that indicated the majority of residents had no concerns. Council has delayed second and third reading of the bylaw amendment until their next meeting as the Councilor who presented it was unable to attend last nights meeting.
