The Thompson Local News


City council met last night for the only time in the month of August.

 

The meeting started out with three certificates of achievement presented to an individual and two businesses. They were handed out to the Thompson branch of the Assiniboine Credit Union in recognition for being awarded the 2017 National Credit Union award for social responsibility as well as the Best Western and Thompsonite Breann Pagee.

 

Councillor Dennis Foley spoke to 102.9 CHTM and said that things like that are his favourite part of being a city councillor.

 

He said that often times people can be so focused on the finances, by-laws and negative aspects of municipal politics, so it’s important to highlight the achievements of business and residents in the city.

 

Foley added that one of the highlights every year for him has been the Volunteer of the Year awards, as they highlight all of the good going on in Thompson by Thomponsites.

 

The meeting also included letters from Eileen Clarke, the Manitoba Minister of Indigenous and Municipal Relations. The letters formalized funding from the province for work here in Thompson, including $400,000.00 which has gone towards the Selkirk road work.

 

Council will resume their bi-weekly meetings following their next meeting on September 5th.
