At their meeting last night Flin Flon City Council approved the Municipal Funding Application from the Flin Flon and District Chamber of Commerce in the amount of three thousand dollars. It will help defray the cost of the Music on Main Street Project. In a letter Chamber Co-Vice-Chair Dianne Russell noted she has been getting requests for sound capability on Main Street and now she says the idea can become a reality. She explains the idea came from a conversation with her mother Dona O’Brien when they were discussing a legacy project for her dad in the community as he cared a lot about Chamber, local businesses and the community specifically Main Street so the idea of putting music on Main Street came to life from her putting in the first donation and then Hudbay and a couple of private donors and the municipalities have got behind it and they’re hoping to have something happening by the middle of December.
A sound system will be installed on the light standards along Main Street to broadcast music and it will also be available to broadcast emergency messages.
