City votes to seek ­Executive  Council changes

The City of Sherbrooke decided Monday to ask the provincial government for the power to alter the composition of its executive committee, fulfilling a promise that Mayor Steve Lussier made during his election campaign last fall.
Council agreed to submit a private bill that would authorize the mayor to appoint “three or four” councilors to the committee with him. The number of councilors that the mayor can appoint to the executive committee is currently set at three.
Prior to his election, Lussier promised to abolish the position of Chair and appoint seven councilors with an annual rotation to ensure that all councilors could participate.
Saint-François MNA Guy Hardy will present the bill to the Quebec National Assembly.
