At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council reversed an earlier decision on banning garage and yard sales in the community. At the time they were concerned about COVID-19 with groups of people gathering and money changing hands. With changes in public health orders now in effect they passed a resolution noting garage and yard sales now fall within the health parameters for outdoor gatherings so the ban will be lifted and allowed in the City of Flin Flon.
They referred to committee of the whole council a copy of a letter to Northern Housing Operations regarding the vacant Manitoba Housing complex on Hemlock Drive noting this building has been vacant since September 2012 and is beyond savable for residency and should be torn down as it’s an open invitation for trouble.
The city agreed to share the cost of Flowers on Main Street with the Flin Flon Neighborhood Revitalization Corporation and Hudbay Minerals in the amount of 4650 dollars shared three ways.
They also approved a Municipal Funding Application to the Parents of the 2020 Grads in the amount of 25 hundred dollars for grad picture banners and agreed to have the Public Works Department hang the banners. Council will leave Zoom meetings and return to in person meetings back at City Hall for June 16th.
