Desranleau District Councilor Danielle Berthold becomes Chair of the Public Safety Committee of the City of Sherbrooke.
His appointment will be made public on December 18, along with the few members of the various working committees that are still missing.
“I’m happy,” she said. “It’s a great mark of confidence and a great responsibility. Public safety is the safety of all our citizens and our children, so it’s important. ”
Re-elected for a second term under the banner of the Sherbrooke Renewal, Ms. Berthold was quickly appointed to the executive committee with Chantal L’Espérance and President Nicole Bergeron.
She is also a member of Destination Sherbrooke, as well as President of Animation Center-Ville de Sherbrooke and the Revaluation Corporation of the Ascot mine site, according to the nominations announced on November 20th. She has also been an independent advisor since that date.
With regard to the public safety committee, Mayor Steve Lussier has considered merging it with another committee to reduce the workload of municipal councilors, who have gone from 19 to 14 since November 5th. As for the toponymy committee last week, however, it has reconsidered the importance of the applications that come under this body, which will include six citizens and the presidents of the four boroughs.
“Public safety is the sidewalks, the bike paths, the lighting, the speed in the school zones, these are the files we are constantly talking about when we meet the citizens,” says Berthold, then of By mutual agreement with the executive committee, it was concluded that it could not be joined to another committee or removed. ”
In total, the City of Sherbrooke has 27 working committees covering all activities. They have power of recommendation to the entire city council.
