At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council passed on final reading the Local Vehicles For Hire Bylaw. Councilor Tim Babcock explained this bylaw was compiled with input from the local taxi operators. He says under this bylaw there must be a seal on a vehicle to show it’s licensed to operate in the city meeting the regulations spelled out in the bylaw, a mirror hanger that shows the driver is a licensed taxi driver and the vehicle must have a regular safety check in order to maintain its license.
Council also passed on final reading the bylaw to prescribe fees, fines and charges for Municipal services and the bylaw to regulate the condition of owned vacant and derelict buildings and to set fines for non-compliance.
The bylaw setting the Special Levy for Police and Fire Services for three years will go to a public meeting next Wednesday at 7 at City Hall and then to the Municipal Board for their review before returning to Council for final reading.
