At their meeting last night Council had high praise for the Flin Flon Community Choirs weekend performance of Chicago with Councilor Ken Pawlachuk noting the culture in our community is one of the things attracting people here. Deputy Mayor Tim Babcock says a production like that shows what we can do in our community and as they consider their spending priorities it’s important that we keep what we have.
Council agreed to renew their membership in the Saskatchewan Urban Municipalities Association at a cost of 665 dollars which allows them to lobby for provincial funding for the Saskatchewan part of our city.
Council received a letter from Legion President Robert Penner asking for clarification on who owns the Cenotaph on Hill Street as it is in need of repairs. He said after researching its history it’s not clear if it is owned by the community through donations or the city through its budget. He said if there is no claim of ownership the Legion will spearhead the repairs by soliciting donations and other sources of funding. The letter was referred to the Finance Committee.
