Ayer’s Cliff News
The initiative to have the Ayer’s Cliff Fairgrounds recognized as a heritage site is moving along. “Resolutions are being drawn up and will be proposed to the government soon,” said mayor Alec van Zuiden.
The town has also applied to the New Horizons program for a grant to encourage activities for seniors. “We want to capitalize on existing infrastructure so we came up with the idea to approach the new owner of Place Sanborn,” continued the mayor. A new park for seniors was built at Place Sanborn by its owner and the town’s idea is to add to this, as long as the new section of the park would be open to the entire population, encouraging the mixing of generations and resource sharing.
The town has agreed, along with other municipalities of the Memphremagog MRC, to suspend payment of its Sureté du Quebec services because a proper Memphremagog MRC police station has not yet been built by the government of Quebec on the territory, as agreed upon eight years ago. The officers serving that MRC are all still based in Sherbrooke.
