At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council agreed to support a Flinty statue upgrade. They approved the support and a partnership with the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce for the Flinty Statue Restoration Project to a maximum of 10 thousand dollars. The Chamber hopes to get the project which includes some structural work started by the end of June. They have already been able to find grants for 20 thousand of the estimated 30 thousand dollar budget and are fundraising for any unexpected costs.
Council also agreed to apply to the Saskatchewan government for a grant of just over 29 thousand dollars so the upgrade of the South Hudson playground can proceed. The total cost is 65 thousand dollars with another grant and the city recreation budget sharing in the cost as well.
