At their meeting last night City Council received letters from students at Ruth Betts Community School some of whom also attended the meeting. Their main concern was plastic bags and how they destroy birds, fish and animals while littering our community and surrounding areas. They called on Council to bring in a local ban on plastic bags. Mayor Cal Huntley advised the students it is already a committee priority and they will consult with the business community on how to bring in a ban. He added it is always good to get youth views on issues.
Mayor Huntley mentioned the company granted a license to sell cannabis in Flin Flon has been looking at rental properties in the Main Street area.
Council also passed their financial plan on final reading setting the special services levy, mill rate and business assessment for this year as presented at a recent public meeting.
They received the Fire Chiefs report for May indicating four incidents during the month including grass fires and false alarms.
