City Council has announced they have made the emergency decision to close the Flin Flon Aqua Centre permanently and immediately. An engineering review has revealed critical safely issues with the pool’s infrastructure that pose an immediate risk to employees and the public. Repairing the issues would require significant overhauls of the existing facility at substantial cost. Therefore Council has made the decision not to re-open the Aqua Centre until a new facility has been built.
They add an application was submitted in September to the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program regarding funding for a new Aqua Center and recreational facility. Council will focus on seeking a positive result from the funding request in order to move the vision of a new recreational facility forward.
