At last night’s meeting Flin Flon City Council received a challenge from the Mayor of Regina Michael Fougere to Mayor George Fontaine to join Mayors across the country in taking part in the Mayor’s Poetry City Challenge by having a local poet read a poem at the start of their council meeting in March or April. It is to recognize UNESCO’s World Poetry Day March 21st and National Poetry Month. The letter was referred to Mayor Fontaine. Over 30 large and small communities took part last year.
Council passed a motion to appoint Mary Wright as Weed Inspector for the city. This is a position mandated by the province and she is paid as her services are required.
Council received the Fire Chief’s report for February indicating there were three incidents during the month including a false alarm at McIsaac School, a smoke detector sounding and assistance to the ambulance.
