At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council received a request for a donation of pool time from the Aqua Jets when they host the Flin Flon Spring Thaw Swim Meet on May 11th and 12th. They anticipate around 100 participants with teams coming from Thompson and The Pas with invitations also sent to Brandon, Dauphin, Prince Albert and Yorkton. Council approved a donation of 603 dollars to offset the cost of the pool rental.
Council received the Fire Chiefs report for February indicating three fire calls during the month.
In response to a question Mayor George Fontaine said the budget preparation process continues as Council determines how much money they have to spend and what the priority areas for spending are. As we’ve reported before they continue to look at separating RCMP and Fire costs from the tax bill sending them out as a separate bill so all property owners share these costs equally. A public budget presentation will be held around the end of April.
