At last night’s City Council meeting Mayor Cal Huntley announced Councillor Guy Rideout has resigned from Council effective the end of this month for personal reasons. Huntley praised him for the work he has done on Council adding he will be missed. Council appointed Katy Anderson as the Senior Election Official for the purpose of holding a by-election on a date to be announced.
Council also confirmed the departure of Treasurer Lynn Brown who will be leaving soon for Saskatoon.
Councillor Karen MacKinnon reported since the announcement of the permanent closure of the Aqua Centre last Friday people have been asking how they can help so she noted the Community Committee will need help moving forward in raising funds for the new pool. Mayor Huntley reported the present building is sealed off because it is unsafe and will have to be demolished as the cost of repairing the damaged infrastructure would be substantial.
And Mayor Huntley added the Flin Flon flag has flown over Thompson City and Hudson Bay Saskatchewan Town Halls due to wins by Flin Flon in the SnoRiders Sledtown Showdown with Flin Flon now up against McBride, BC in the competition.
