Council passed on final reading a bylaw to approve and ratify an agreement between the City and the Flin Flon Bomber Hockey Club. The bylaw given first reading at their last meeting related to just over 27 thousand dollars owed to the City as a result of the playoffs being cut short two seasons ago and no season this year. The agreement specifies the amount will remain on the books but should the Club’s annual profits exceed 100 thousand dollars payment will be due on the outstanding balance.
Council referred a letter to Engineering Services requesting a bylaw change to allow fowl animals in the city referring to a learning experience for children and the ability to raise hens and sell eggs locally.
Mayor Cal Huntley officially declared the week of July 2nd to 11th as Flin Flon Pride Week.
Councilor Ken Pawlachuk says about a third of the properties in our city don’t have house numbers which is a problem in an emergency, about a third have no front steps and there are properties that are desperately in need of upgrading so it’s time to enforce city bylaws and take a stand against this. Mayor Cal Huntley suggested people should report properties in violation and encouraged Councilor Pawlachuk to develop any ideas he has on how to make it work.
