Adoption of Amendment and Authorization to Sign:

  • Council adopted the amendment to resolution number 2019-12-572 entitled “Participation of the City in the project Les Habitations Abordables Sutton within the AccèsLogis Québec program”: the Minister of Municipal Affairs and Housing (MAMH) has awarded the HAS affordable housing project an additional grant of $447,500, which will be added to the $304,272 already awarded in March 2021 (read the press release of March 29, 2021). This will provide HAS with a total of $1,260,083 in funding, including the Town’s previous 2019 grants detailed in the same press release.
  • Council authorized the signing of the agreement related to this grant, as it is the Town of Sutton that receives the grant and will pay it to HAS.


  • Council approved the purchase of a “Velovoûte” bicycle parking: the project to acquire a Velovoûte for parking four bicycles and including two charging stations for electric bicycles was carried out in collaboration with Tourisme Cantons-de-l’Est as part of the Cœurs Villageois. Conditional on the receipt of a grant that will pay for the bicycle parking, the Town will fund its installation at a maximum cost of $10,000. The Velovoûte will be part of the electric bike tour developed by Tourisme Cantons-de-l’Est.


  • A citizen asked what a Velovoûte is. ANSWER: It is a secure rack for parking bicycle, including electric bikes.
  • A citizen asked where the location of this bike cart would be. ANSWER: It is not determined at this time.

Next council meeting: Wednesday, April 6, 2022 at 7:30 p.m. (reminder: 2022 meeting schedule).
