At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council praised city employees for keeping the water flowing. Around 2 o’clock last Friday morning the power went out for around 600 resident of Flin Flon for about four hours. Because of the outage the city’s water pumps went down stopping water circulation for the city from the Gas Bar west including Uptown, South Hudson and Ross Lake areas. Without the water circulating in around minus 40 weather there is a very high risk of water lines freezing. Councilor Ken Pawlachuk applauded the fast action by city employees in getting the back up pumps going to keep the water flowing before the lines froze.
Council also received the Fire Chiefs report for December indicating three incidents during the month which is the same a December of 2016.
