Last Sitting of Municipal Council


A look back at the Council sitting of November 5 

At the beginning of the meeting, Mayor Richard Burcombe reported that the Small Claims Division of the Court of Québec had ruled in favour of the Town in a tree felling case and ordered the defendant to pay the Town an amount of $9,326.47.

The Council authorizes the payment of statements of account in the amount of $1,368,193.82, including taxes, for the following work: repairs to guardrails, water system on Knowlton Road, repairs to Victoria Street and the reconstruction of Mill and Fairmount roads.

The elected representatives also agreed to the negotiation of a First Responder Agreement between the Town and the Municipality of West Bolton, in addition to approving the protocols for the working conditions of the Town's management and non-unionized employees.

A notice of motion was also given, followed by the presentation of a by-law to amend the Peace, Order and Nuisance By-law, in particular to regulate the use of cannabis.

The Council also adopted a by-law decreeing an expenditure of $1,000,000 and a loan of $850,000 for the reconstruction of the two footbridges at Trestle Cove.

The Council gave its agreement to the annual fireworks show on December 27th, then confirmed his participation in Transport Adapté pour Nous Inc. and appointed Councillor Pierre Laplante to the Board of Directors of this organization.

It should also be noted that the elected officials approved and supported the entire content of the Davignon Lake Watershed Management Plan and made certain commitments with respect to it.

Finally, the Council agrees not to use (except as provided for) de-icing salt for winter maintenance of the streets of the Faubourg Lac-Brome residential project, formerly on the Lac Brome golf course.

The brown bin is coming soon! 

Brown bin distribution will begin on December 3, as Brome Lake prepares to offer its residents composting of organic materials. You will receive a 240-litre capacity bin, which will contain a smaller bin to keep in the kitchen, a practical guide and a sample bag.

The delivery of the brown bin will be handled by USD Global, for the manufacturer IPL. It will be placed in your driveway. You do not have to be present at the time of delivery.

The Town of Brome Lake reminds its residents of the importance of not using the largest bin until the week before the first collection, scheduled for early January.

It is also strongly recommended to take the mini-bin out as soon as it is received, to avoid forgetting it inside the large bin the first time you use it.

A more detailed schedule will be sent to you later in December.

Town Hall Relocation

Starting Monday, December 10, the Town Hall building will undergo a rejuvenation, therefore it will be closed to visitors for the next few months. Staff is moving to 30 Lakeside Road, in the blue building next to Coldbrook Park. This is the mailing address you will need to use and it is where you will find your usual services!

Note that this move only affects employees whose offices are located at Town Hall. 

This means that the employees of Land and Environmental Management will remain at their current location (5 Victoria Street).

According to a survey, three out of four respondents in favour of a Bromont-Brome Lake police service

The cities of Brome Lake and Bromont held a joint press conference on Monday, November 26, to unveil the results of a survey held earlier in the fall. Here are some key highlights of this media exercise: 

- The survey was conducted with 600 respondents from both cities;

- Three out of four respondents say they are in favour of coverage of the Brome Lake territory by the Bromont Police Service;

- Two-thirds of the participants from Brome Lake believe that this avenue would improve police presence and safety in their town;

- Such a scenario requires the adoption of a private bill, since the Police Act does not allow a community of less than 50,000 inhabitants to make changes to its police service;

- Both cities will hold public information sessions, the dates of which will be announced in the coming weeks.

Organic Materials Information Sessions Postponed

Recent weather conditions have prompted the Brome-Missisquoi MRC to postpone three organic matter information sessions, including the one scheduled for December 4 in Brome Lake

Instead, the activities will be held in 2019. The exact dates will be announced at a later date.  

Bins and snow: a question of location

In this early winter, here are some common instructions for the disposal of your bins to prevent them from being knocked over :

- Place them within the lot and driveway boundaries, always with the wheels and handles aligned towards the property, not on the street or sidewalk;

- The cover must be properly closed. No objects should be placed on top of the bin;

- Outside the collection period, the bin must be removed and placed more than 3 m from the road right-of-way.

Note that these instructions apply to all your bins.

Info-work: the end of the Mill project

Nearly three months after its launch, the project to replace the water system and pave Mill and Fairmount Roads to new standards was completed when the first snowflakes fell. Like the Victoria site, a second layer of asphalt will be applied in the spring. A bicycle path will then be built.

It should be noted that reloading work has also been completed on the section of the bicycle path between Argyll Road and the Trestle Cove sector.
