At their meeting Tuesday night Flin Flon City Council gave first reading to a bylaw that will designate speed limits in school zones around McIsaac and Ruth Betts Schools to 30 kilometers per hour during school hours as recommended by the Traffic Commission. It requires two more readings that will probably take place at their next meeting.
In other business Councillor Karen MacKinnon reported this year’s Trout Festival will run from July 1st to 4th. Council agreed to purchase two banner ads in the Hapnot Collegiate year book at a cost of 100 dollars. They also agreed to reimburse the Flin Flon Lions Club’s Handivan program 4536 dollars to cover the cost of vehicle insurance and registration for the Handivan. In making the motion Councillor Colleen McKee said this is the city’s way of supporting a well used program in the community.
