At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council heard from a delegation on the need for increased city bus service in peak hours for students. This is due to the School Division having to reduce the number of students bused due to COVID-19 public health regulations as well as some students had used city buses in the past. The number of students able to ride the city bus is limited due to the need for social distancing so they suggested a second bus at peak times.
Mayor Cal Huntley said they will have a consultation with the School Division because they have to be part of the solution and if it leads to increased costs they should share that with the city.
Councillor Tim Babcock reported he has reviewed the city plan regarding use of the Whitney Forum and it’s a good plan but will require the co-operation of the public to make it work so hopefully it can be brought forward soon.
And Councillor Karen MacKinnon reported she contacted MPI regarding having driver testing in Flin Flon again. It was cancelled due to COVID-19. MPI stated they hope to bring testing here again within the next couple of months.
