At their meeting yesterday the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce formed a committee to approach MTS about bringing their fibre optic network into Flin Flon. One of that committee’s members Dianne Russell said she understands one of MTS’s main concerns is dealing with our bed rock. City Council rep Karen MacKinnon reported City Council has agreed to support the Chamber in their lobbying of MTS. Russell also suggested approaching Sasktel about fibre optics for Creighton.
In other business the Fund Raising and Membership Committee recommended the Chamber hold a 50-50 raffle over the summer to be drawn during Culture Days in September with a prize of 5 thousand dollars if all tickets are sold. They also recommended the Chamber hold its annual radio auction in early June this year instead of the fall. The Chamber agreed to both requests.
And membership renewals have been sent out and if you haven’t received yours you can contact the Chamber office.
