Sutton Council Works on Revised Town Ordinances

The Sutton Town Council conducted a special meeting on December 29 to end 2022. The meeting was called to order by Mayor JD Hoover at 6:00 pm.
The meeting was to review changes and amendments to the town ordinances. Council member Jon Crum spent the majority of the meeting discussing the ordinances with the council. Several of the changes were typos that needed to be corrected. Changes and amendments were needed to comply with changes to state legislation, to remove obsolete items, clarification of ordinances, and to consolidate ordinances. The ordinances are available under the Documents tab of the town website at or in the main office for individuals to review.
Mike Gioulis and Fernando Rodriguez were present for the meeting. They spoke on behalf of the Elk River Trail and asked the council to consider implementing an ordinance on ATV usage in town limits. Council will discuss adding an ordinance on ATVs at a future time.
Council approved the updated ordinances on a motion by Jon Crum. The ordinances will go into effect on January 3, 2023 per the motion.
During the meeting, council accepted the resignation of Recorder Laurel Petolicchio on a motion by Beth Atkins. Council also approved placing Council member Robyn Dolan on the bank card for signing check on a motion by Catherine Hoover.
The meeting was adjourned at 8:02 pm. The next regular meeting is scheduled for January 12 at 6:00 pm.
