At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council approved the 2020 recreation fee schedule with the exception of the Whitney Forum which is reviewed separately. There will be relatively small increases in rates for the RH Channing Auditorium, Green Room, Rotary Wheel, Ball Diamonds and the Aqua Centre with the Tourist Bureau and Camp Whitney rates not changing. It was noted these fees are a catch up to increasing costs but are still much lower than most communities. The rate schedule will be posted on the City’s website.
Council passed on second reading a bylaw establishing rates to be charge for water and sewer services in the city. Unmetered service will see a billing increase of 3 percent each year for 2020,21 and 22. The rates still have to be approved by the Public Utilities Board before third and final reading.
Council agreed to provide 50 thousand dollars in the 2020 financial plan to fund the Community Improvement Plan under development by the Flin Flon Economic Development Committee to assist with the implementation of Main Street revitalization with this initial money for the project being used to assist owners investing in upgrading their businesses.
And the Public Library has a new Administrator in Elizabeth Andres and Assistant in Lisa Goodfellow.
Council wished everyone a Merry Christmas,
