The Chairperson of the Flin Flon and District Environment Council LaVerne Hinzman wrote to City Council following up on a meeting held in May with the Council and Product Care Manitoba to discuss establishing a year round hazardous waste depot in Flin Flon. He says their Board urges Council to proceed with this project in a timely manner stating the current annual collection of hazardous materials does not meet the needs of the community. The letter adds it is our fear that many of these hazardous materials are being released into the environment at the landfill and other unsuitable places. The letter was referred to Engineering Services.
Council also received the Fire Chiefs report for August indicating 11 calls during the month largely bush fires and Council passed a resolution recognizing Queen Elizabeth who on September 9th will become Britain’s longest reigning monarch. She has been Queen since February of 1952.
