At their meeting Tuesday night Flin Flon City Council awarded the tender for the design and construction of a new Aqua Centre to Ernst Hansch Construction Limited. Skip Martin who appeared at a meeting in September with Greg East again attended asking Council to hold off on making a decision to go ahead with the pool until adjustments are made in the Hudbay grant in lieu to the City following closure of the Flin Flon operations. At the time Mayor Cal Huntley had told him they have been lobbying for support for a new pool for 15 years because the pool was past its life and the federal and provincial grant money has finally come. The approved Company will begin the design process that will take about six months, they will do testing on the preferred site which is the former Willowvale curling rink site to determine if it is workable and if not move on to another site and about three months in will engage with the public to ensure they are going in the right direction.
Council also named Elder Margaret, Donna Head, Naomi Umphrey, Jaimie Fleuty, Colleen Arnold and Tim Babcock as members of the Flin Flon Reconciliation Team.
