Mountain sector – Cleaning of the aqueduct system

Town of Sutton will be cleaning out the aqueduct system in the Mountain sector starting April 27, 2020. This operation can cause the water to look temporarily cloudy (not clear), or turn yellowish. If this is the case, before using it let the cold water run in your bathtub or sink until the water becomes clear again. We apologize for any potential inconvenience.

Extraordinaire meeting on Monday April 27, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.

Exceptionally, and given the pandemic of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), you can find herein a draft of the proposed borrowing by-laws (in French only) and a draft of the resolution for designation of priority acts (in French only). These are draft and can be modified at any time before the special meeting of April 27, 2020 at 4:00 p.m.

Also, you can find herein a handout (frequently asked questions) on the proposed loan by-laws that may answer many of your questions.

 

A call for your creative ideas and suggestions!

By late 2020, there’ll be new material for your daily walks: items from the Sutton museum will be placed in shops, parks and the library, and some of them will be modified to let you listen to stories by those who came before us. Works in art galleries and the cultural park will also be included. There will be a self-guided tour through the village core with 18 stops that draws a connection between the past and present, history and art. Just follow the green line painted on the ground.

The ones being considered so far are:

  • Greening the Way Discovery Tour,
  • The Blue Muse Fun Tour,
  • Culture Crossing
  • and Tracing Our Heritage.

The colour mentioned in the name is the colour that will be painted on the ground.

What will this self-guided tour be called? We need your help to find a good name!

For the past several months the Sutton Culture department has been working on a new project to profile Sutton’s history and art. The project will take the form of a 4.5 km self-guided walking tour that will wind its way through the village core.

Along the way you will see the work of various artists at venues such as Arts Sutton, Art + and D’Arts et de Rêves. In addition, artefacts from the Sutton museum that bring alive the past will be placed in public areas for you to interact with and explore. Various themes will be highlighted, such as skiing in Sutton before the ski hill opened, old-fashioned remedies and potions, and Sutton’s early cinema. With some of the museum objects – telephones, radios and televisions – you’ll be able to hear the voices of our seniors telling stories about the hockey games of their youth, the advent of electricity and many other interesting events from Sutton’s history.

The walking tour route will be indicated by a line painted on the ground that links and identifies all the stops; there will also be an interactive map on a mobile app.

Postponement of the regional shoreline shrub distribution day

The council of mayors decided at the April 21 meeting, to postpone the Regional Day of Distribution of Shoreline Shrubs to a later date this fall which has not yet been determined. This decision was made in order to respect the health measures put in place regarding the current situation related to COVID-19.

Shrub reservations will therefore be extended. To obtain more information, click on the following link (in French only) via the MRC Brome-Missisquoi website: mrcbm.qc.ca/en/forest_pepiniere_riv.php?

You will be informed, as soon as possible, by email (for those who have booked shrubs with the MRC), newspapers and social media of the precise date for the resumption of the Shrub Distribution Day.

Thank you for your understanding.
