Thunder Bay's Mayor Keith Hobbs is vowing to turn the McIntyre area's "black path" into a safe path. Councillors asked a variety of questions to the 17 year old who started the petition to get the walkway lit and monitored by video cameras. Hobbs feels community policing would help make the pathway safer. Councillor Andrew Foulds says lighting makes residents feel more confident and safe. Administration will be providing a costing report to council on February 9th.
Thunder Bay's Information Radio Station is looking for cash from the City of Thunder Bay. 90.5 FM is a broadcasting service that repeats a steady loop of local weather, road and emergency information. The group wants 18-thousand dollars from the city as a lease payment. The money would be used to pay the employees who update the radio feed. The station began broadcasting in the fall of 2010. If the city doesn't provide the cash the company will either apply for a commerical licence or pull the radio station out of the City.
