At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council received information on the development of the SaskMan Inter-jurisdictional Hub Committee in Creighton to look at Creighton Flin Flon services. It explained the Hub Model is an evidence based collaborative problem solving approach that draws on the combined expertise of relevant community agencies to address complex human and social problems before they become policing problems. Their interagency group has been meeting for 18 month to promote and create the SaskMan hub and includes RCMP, Justice, Education, Housing, Kids First North, Social Services and Health. They are hoping the interagency group will be more effective in providing services to our unique cross border community since what happens in one effects the other.
In other business Council agreed to apply to the Saskatchewan government for infrastructure funding for Hapnot Lake for a loop booster station. And Council agreed to move their next meeting from Tuesday February 3rd to Wednesday the 4th.
