CIty Hall Christmas Tree
At the Flin Flon City Council meeting last night Mayor Cal Huntley wished all a safe and Merry Christmas on behalf of council, management and city employees. He said the best Christmas is having your family home safely with you for the season. He added with the heavy drop of snow and warm temperatures roads and highways are a mess so drive carefully.
In business council passed a change to the bylaw for standards for residential properties changing the reference from dwelling to buildings to expand the types of structures it covers. Councilor Colleen McKee reports she is part of the Manitoba Agriculture Food and Rural Economic Development pilot project and will report to council on its activities.
When asked to comment on reports on the future of the Triple Seven Mine Mayor Huntley said Hudbay has closed major mines in this area before. He said Triple Seven has a life of four to five years depending on metal prices but he believes there could be another mine but that would take time to develop. He says meanwhile Snow Lake continues to feed ore to the plant here. He says they may have to deal with a shift in population and that’s something they’ll have to consider as they move forward.
