A heritage building, snowmobiles and funding were all part of last night’s Flin Flon City Council meeting.
At the meeting Council gave final reading to a bylaw to designate the main building at the Flin Flon Station Museum as a municipal heritage site. The Museum Board had requested the designation so they could access special grants.
Councilor Colleen McKee reported Council receives many requests from the community for donations so they will implement funding guidelines to help them regulate their spending. There will be four intakes a year which will be advertised with guidelines and applications available on the city website and at City Hall.
Some resident of the Trailer Courts presented council with a petition signed by 40 households. The petition states they are not concerned about the use of snowmobiles or quads in the Trailer Court. They found people were not aware this issue was part of a petition they signed regarding the loss of limestone fill for their lots. They asked Council not to pass the bylaw that regulates the idling and revving of snowmobiles as it is not a concern to residents and it’s not fair they should be singled out with a bylaw. Council agreed to table the bylaw for further discussion.
