City Council is asking it's staff to look into creating a school safety zone around Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School. Mayor Keith Hobbs brought the issue up on behalf of the school. The reduced speed zone is proposed for the Edward Street corridor between Churchill Drive and Riverview Drive.
City Council is moving ahead with a new landscaping policy for four routes through the City. Council approved a long term plan for the complete corridors of May Street, Arthur Street, Red River Road and Simpson Street. City Councillor Paul Pugh says the plan doesn't mean they'll be spending money immediately on the project it's just a long term vision for the routes that connect Thunder Bay from the North to the South sections of the City.
The City is on alert monitoring for city-wide flooding risks after the Lakehead Region Conservation Authority issued a flood watch. City staff are ready to deploy pumping equipment and resources if needed. Another flood update will be held by the City at noon Tuesday.
