Ayer’s Cliff News

Stanstead Journal - - 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.
