Last Sitting of Municipal Council

 

A Look Back at the Council Sitting of February 4 

The Council opened the meeting by authorizing the payment of bills totalling $86,091.55, including taxes, for the work carried out as part of the restoration of the Town Hall.

It then proceeds by accepting the signing of a street sweeping and cleaning agreement with the MTQ, the signing of a termination agreement concerning the fire prevention officer and authorizes an organizational restructuring and the hiring of a new employee in the Recreation, Culture, Tourism and Community Life department.

A total expenditure of $169,050 is approved as financial contributions to various organizations (including $130,000 for the Pettes Memorial Library). The Council asks the Brome-Missisquoi MRC for a $3,000 grant as part of the strategy to attract young families.

The elected representatives also support the project to expand the Estrie administrative region by integrating the Brome-Missisquoi and Haute-Yamaska MRCs.

*THE NEXT COUNCIL MEETING WILL BE HELD ON MONDAY, MARCH 4, AT 7:00 PM AT THE CENTRE LAC-BROME*

Brown bins: properly sorting your materials is a must!

A few days before the fourth collection of the brown bin, Town of Brome Lake would like to acknowledge the involvement of its residents who have embraced this green movement, which has already allowed several tons of materials to be diverted from the landfill site.

As adjustments continue, it is important to remember that compostable bags made of plastic or cornstarch are not accepted. Only brown paper or papillotes made with newspapers are accepted.

Visit this section of our website to learn more about the contents of the brown bin.

Reminder: an information session on organic matter in Brome Lake  

The information session organized by the Brome-Missisquoi MRC will take place this Monday, February 25, at 7 p.m. in the Buchanan Hall at the Centre Lac-Brome (270 Victoria Street).

With organic matter collection as its main theme, it will be conducted in English. However, it will be possible to take part in the question period in French.

Busy start to the new year for the Town of Brome Lake fire department

For the month of January 2019, the part-time firefighters in the Town of Brome Lake responded to a total of 28 calls.

That makes for many sleepless nights for responding personnel, who have full-time jobs in various fields such as manufacturing, snow removal operations, construction or are self employed. 

The Town Council would like to thank everyone for their hard work and also to send a mention of appreciation to the employers of the firefighters for relieving them of their regular obligations so they can respond to those in need.

We are also aware and appreciate the sacrifices that the families of our firefighters must make when they leave at a moment’s notice to respond to a call.

Many of the long hours last month were related to helping firefighters in other towns due to calls for assistance in Sutton, Shefford, Waterloo and Abercorn. By helping our neighbours, we know we can count on them when we need assistance.

Our teams also had to respond to a rescue on the lake and to help locate three young hikers who lost their way on Mount Sutton.

We would like to take this opportunity to remind residents of the Town of Brome Lake that they can play an active role in fire prevention.

A new auto inspection form is available on the town’s website that allows you to fill in valuable information about your residence. This helps the fire department when responding to better understand the specifics of your property.
