At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council shared ideas to recognize upcoming events. Councilor Karen MacKinnon suggested now that people are at home they have time to develop float ideas in case we can have the Canada day parade as this is Manitoba’s 150th and the Trout Festivals 70th anniversary. They will confirm the parade with the Festival Committee.
Councilor Colleen McKee noted we have students graduating in Flin Flon and Creighton so we should come up with a way to recognize them which the community is always good at doing. Councilor Ken Pawlachuk noted as one idea when the Arts Council gets their screen on the Community Hall operating again they can run the graduate’s pictures.
Councilor Pawlachuk reported the Neighborhood Revitalization Corporation will again be ordering the flowers for Main Street with financial assistance from the City and Hudbay .
Councilor MacKinnon recognized the local Fire Fighters Association who did a drive by of the senior’s homes along with EMS and also brought pizzas to the seniors at the Manor and Personal Care Home.
Council passed on first reading a bylaw to adopt the provisions of the Manitoba Emergency Measures Act and to approve and adopt the updated City of Flin Flon Emergency Plan. Only minor updates were required to the plan.
