Brownsburg-Chatham town council met on November 1 and a series of resolutions were adopted involving human resources, facilities, and planning.
Extended contract for Director-General
Brownsburg-Chatham Director-General Jean-François Brunet will continue to serve until 2026. Council has approved an extension of Brunet’s contract. Mayor Kevin Maurice said the extension demonstrates how Brownsburg-Chatham is led by a good team of administrative staff.
Brunet became Director-General of Brownsburg-Chatham in April 2021 and had previously served as the town’s Director of Development and Land Use Planning. Brunet’s contract was originally to expire in 2023.
Council has appointed District 4 Councillor Martine Renaud as the Supplementary Mayor for 2023. Renaud will assume the role of mayor whenever Mayor Kevin Maurice is not available.
Renaud will also serve as Brownsburg-Chatham’s representative on the council of the Municipalité régional de comté (MRC) d’Argenteuil, whenever Maurice is unavailable.
Town hall renovations
Council approved awarding a contract to Robert Guertin Inc. for the construction of a new office at the town hall, at a cost of $17,450, plus taxes.
A resolution to grant provisional approval to work to extend rue Woodbine in Brownsburg was approved by council. The street is being extended to facilitate the construction of the five-phase Quartier Woodbine housing development.
Construction is beginning on Phases A and B. Phase A will consist of 10 townhouses and two single family homes. Phase B will include six, six-plex townhouse buildings and two single family homes.
Gestion Or Concept Inc. of Mirabel is responsible for the Quartier Woodbine development.
