Les dizaines de millimètres de pluie supplémentaires qui devraient tomber d'ici dimanche lui font craindre le pire.

A historic handover occurred on April 7: the official transfer of ownership of the Quyon Recreation Park by community group Quyon Ensemble (QE) to the Municipality of Pontiac (MoP). The land, worth approximately $322,000, was symbolically sold by QE to the MoP for a dollar. "For the last couple of years we've been in negotiations," Roger Larose, mayor of the MoP, explained. "As a municipality, we've been wanting to have a recreation park in Luskville and one in Quyon. Through negotations, they [QE] were open to sit down and talk about it."

Les employés du service des travaux publiques de la municipalié de Pontiac ont été informé par écrit mercredi que à compter de 16h30 mardi prochain, ils seront mis à pied pour une période indéterminée.  Cette action vient plus tôt dans l'année que d'habitude et ne comprend habituellement pas tous les employés du service.  La geste inhabituel a été fait à la suite du départ du chef de division Michel Trudel, dont sa démission a été acceptée par le Conseil lors d'une réunion spéciale le 16 août.

Employees of the Municipality of Pontiac’s Public Works department were informed in writing Wednesday this week that, effective next Tuesday (September 6), all workers currently with the department will be laid off at 4:30 p.m. This action comes earlier in the year than is usual and seasonal lay-offs do not usually include all of the Public Works employees. The unusual move was made in the wake of the departure of Division Head Michel Trudel, whose resignation was accepted by Council at a special meeting on August 16.

At the May 17 council meeting, a draft bylaw was passed, proposing to borrow $1.5 million in order to finally replace the aging “Beach Barn”, the Lions Hall on Ch. Ferry in Quyon. 

Pontiac 2020.ca asked communications agent for the Municipality of Pontiac (MoP), Dominic Labrie some more questions about the bylaw and the amended plans for the much-needed community center.

1.5 MILLION — QUYON COMMUNITY CENTER

Categories: 

Dear Ratepayer,

I wish to ensure that you are informed about the fact that Municipal Council has passed a borrowing bylaw in the amount of $1.5 Million to build a new community center in the Quyon sector (bylaw 05-16).

This loan will cost you $18 more per $100,000 of property assessment for the next 15 or 20 years. At first glance, it doesn’t seem much, but the expenses are accumulating; in the fall of 2015 borrowing bylaw of $2 million for the repair of Mountain Road, in spring 2016 another borrowing bylaw of $2 million for the repair of Dominican Rd and other roads. If you start adding up all of these loans, here’s the approximate impact to your wallet :

1.5 MILLION — CENTRE COMMUNAUTAIRE A QUYON

Categories: 

Chers contribuables,

Je vous envoie ce petit mot afin d’assurer que vous soyez informés du fait que le conseil municipal a voté en faveur d’un règlement d’emprunt de $1.5 million pour la construction d’un nouveau centre communautaire dans le secteur de Quyon (Règlement 05-16).

Cet emprunt vous coûtera $18 de plus en taxes pour chaque tranche de $100,000 d’évaluation de vote propriété. A prime abord ça ne semble pas beaucoup d’argent mais les dépenses s’accumulent; à l’automne 2015 un règlement d’emprunt de 2 Millions pour la préparation du chemin de la Montagne, en mai 2016 un règlement de 2 millions pour la réparation du ch. des Dominicains et autre divers chemins.  Si on additionne le tout, voici l’impact approximatif sur votre portefeuille:

We all know that being prepared for an unexpected emergency as individuals is vital. How to be prepared as a community seems less clear. I asked communications agent Dominic Labrie about what we now have in place to help keep the people of Pontiac safe.

Municipality of Pontiac (MoP): Yes, right now it is in phase 1.

UPDATE - McCann Off Council

Categories: 

by: 

Thomas Souliére

As of 4pm on May 11th, Pontiac2020.ca has learned that Edward McCann has been removed from serving as councilor in Quyon ward in the Municipality of Pontiac.  McCann, who previously served as a councilor and mayor of Pontiac up to the election in 2013, had won a by-election in ward 2 after councilor Denis Dubé was forced to resign to focus on personal family matters.  McCann served since his election to the ward until today's judgement.

This leaves ward 2 in Pontiac's historic Quyon without a representative for the second time since 2014 and will most certainly force yet another by-election for one of Pontiac's important areas.
