Mot du Maire/ Mayor’s remarks – 2 Nov.Conseil de Ville

Depuis notre dernier Conseil,il y a eu une diversité d’activités. J’ai eu l’honneur de participer á une réception offerte par nos voisins de Kanesetake á la Maison Raizennes,une maison construite en 1721 sous le règne des Sulpiciens.

Duncan Campbell,our interim DG,who is now operating 2 days a week on specific assignments,presented his observations and recommendations to Council and our new DG. Our new DG has already indicated his approval of most of the recommendations but will be presenting each item to Council for approval or resolution,as the case may be.

There was the usual monthly MRC Board meeting as well as a special meeting to elect the Prefect and his/her substitute as well as committee members and those designated to head those committees. Other than continuing to serve on the Board,I have withdrawn from other duties so as to dedicate myself fully to Hudson assignments. Le Préfet demeure le même,Jean Lalonde,tandis que le sous-Préfet sera dorénavant Marc Roy,Maire de l’Ile Perrot,en remplacement d’ Yvan Cardinal,maire de Pincourt.

Il y a eu un certain nombre d’activités sociales et culturelles durant le mois en préparation d’un très grand nombre d’activités nous menant vers Noel.

Coffee with the Mayor and Councillors was poorly attended on October 24th even though the discussions`were useful. We will publicize the event more on the Web and in the newspapers.

As you may have seen in the papers,the auction for unpaid taxes to the end of 2013 will be held right here at the Community Centre. The notice that was published on Oct.21 indicated that there were 10 homes or properties for sale. As of this moment,there are only 5 left.

Le 15 décembre au soir sera la présentation du budget 2016 á 7:30 pm ici même á laquelle vous êtes tous conviés.

Selon la tradition et la Loi,je vais procéder á la lecture de la lettre annuelle du Maire á la population. Cette lettre sera également distribuée aux médias.
