Last night’s Flin Flon City Council meeting began with the swearing in of the new Mayor Cal Huntley and his six Councilors. All thanked the voters for electing them and look forward to the next four years. Mayor Huntley said there will be challenges but they will make it a productive four years.
Council approved the opening of a line of credit for one million dollars. Councilor Colleen McKee said they are still on budget but this will allow them to pay bills from a very busy summer construction period. Administrator Mark Kolt noted Hudbay payments make up a very large portion of their budget and the line of credit will help cover bills until their next payment is made.
In other business Councilor Karen MacKinnon invited everyone to attend the annual lighting of the City Christmas tree in Pioneer Square at 6 o’clock Friday, November 14th and Council agreed to start future meetings at 7:30 instead of 7:45.
