$ 25,217 to help out Chameran and Hodge-Place-Benoît
The October borough council meeting which was held on October 2th adopted several measures for the cultural, sport and community sectors.
Peace and quiet
The council adopted a new regulation to clearly identify the patch trucks and equipment vehicle have to take. The purpose of this regulation is to ensure the tranquility of the residents and have better service in the commercial areas, with an integrated road network.
This regulation, which will result in a traffic plan for trucks, is part of a City of Montreal network. The plan will address truck traffic with the exception of those making local deliveries. The new regulations will be gradually implemented in the spring of 2013.
The joy of reading
Elected officials have extended to 2013 the allowed period to purchase books for the new public library.
