At the Flin Flon City Council meeting Tuesday night Blair Sapergia asked Council about the move by Canada Post to stop door to door delivery and install community mail boxes. He said he knows of no where these community mail boxes will fit unless maybe on an empty lot. He mentioned the problem in other communities where the boxes are in use including traffic problems and garbage around the box locations.
Councilor Karen MacKinnon said at a recent meeting it was noted the city has no option on where the boxes go but are responsible for snow removal and garbage clean up.
Council agreed they don’t have a lot of options but will look at the issue including input on placement of the boxes.
In other business Councilor Ken Pawlachuk reported there were several reports of false alarms in the Fire Chiefs report for October and the Fire Chief now has the option of sending a bill to home owners for these calls which will hopefully reduce the number of false alarms.
