Council appoints new clerk
Brighton Council has appointed a new clerk, to record the proceedings of council and keep track of any votes that are called.
The official bylaw was passed at Monday’s meeting, appointing Candice Doiron to the position, effective April 24, 2017.
Doiron has worked previously with the Municipality of Clarington, Cramahe Township and most recently as a deputy clerk with the Municipality of Trent Hills.
She’ll fill the seat of Deputy Clerk Vicki Kimmett, who has been keeping track of Brighton Council meetings since 2009.
Ontario 150 grant means big upgrades for Brighton Tennis Club
A Mississauga-based company will be giving the tennis courts in Brighton a much-needed facelift.
The work will be done by Court Surface Specialists with a total cost of $50,000 before taxes.
The town will fund just under $33,500 of that, with $20,000 coming from an Ontario 150 grant and $5,000 from the tennis club.
The overhaul includes upgrades to the playing surface, netting, posts, windscreens and lighting.
Parks and Rec Director Jim Millar says the upgrades will make the courts safer for players and the work should come in under budget once completed.
