At the Flin Flon City Council meeting last night Mayor Cal Huntley echoed comments made by Councillor Leslie Beck in congratulating people on having a safe holiday season and making use of the Rotary Club’s Operation Red Nose in getting home safely. He says Council is looking forward to a positive 2015. He reported the cold weather has not been affecting the city as it did last year when there were numerous frozen and broken water lines. Administrator Mark Kolt says lot of credit goes to the program of replacing orifices in water lines which has been completed in 75 percent of the homes in the community. This increases the pressure in the water lines and keeps them flowing with equal pressure. He says they plan to complete the replacement program in remaining homes this summer.
In other business Council renewed its membership for 2015-16 in the Federation of Canadian Municipalities at a cost of 1085 dollars. The Federation notes by working together they can make a real impact on federal scene.
