At the Flin Flon City Council meeting Tuesday night Council agreed to submit a project titled Safe Playground Upgrade for grant funding. This is through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program Community, Culture and Recreation Infrastructure Stream Saskatchewan as well committing its share of just over 21 thousand dollars to the project. The city is looking at upgrading playgrounds and this funding will go towards upgrading the South Hudson playground including more child friendly equipment. The city’s share will cover 25 percent of the cost with the grant from the Federal and Saskatchewan governments if approved covering the remainder.
Council also received the Fire Chiefs report for January indicating three incidents, a call to Ruth Betts School January 7th where a false alarm was sent in by workers testing the system, a two vehicle collision at highway 10 and Green Street with no injuries and a false alarm at a residence on Phelan Avenue January 30th.
And a City of Flin Flon Flag will fly in Thompson. Flin Flon won the provincial final of the SnoRiders Sledtown Showdown over Thompson so the Flin Flon flag will fly over Thompson City Hall for a week. Flin Flon is now in the Inter-Provincial competition against Hudson Bay, Saskatchewan.
