The September 28 meeting of the North Grenville Council began with the announcement from Councillor Tim Sutton that he was resigning his position. "I want you all to know that this is the most difficult decision I have ever made. Representing you as a member of the North Grenville Council since 2006 has been the best job that I have ever had. I have enjoyed every second of the almost nine years that I have been a member of Council and it has been an honour to serve you," stated Councillor Sutton.
He noted in his official letter of resignation that "due to the requirements of my current employment, I will continue to find it extremely difficult to attend Council meetings in the future" and advised that he would be resigning his seat effect 11:59 p.m. on September 30, 2015.
