Les Nouvelles Saint-Laurent - - ACTUALITÉS - So­nia No­reau so­nia.no­reau@tc.tc

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. A lo­cal ci­ti­zen was plea­sed with this an­noun­ce­ment be­cause the Bi­blio­thèque du Vieux-Saint-Laurent didn’t ac­cept a do­na­tion he was trying to make. He was de­ligh­ted to learn that his do­na­tion, a book in Spa­nish, will be part of the col­lec­tion of the new li­bra­ry.

IT spen­dings

In or­der to re­place ex­pi­red li­cences and de­fec­tive or out­da­ted com­pu­ter parts, the coun­cil ac­cep­ted to spend $57 992.37. This amount is spli­ted in­to two dif­ferent contracts. The first of $44 017. 99 is si­gned with So­lu­tion in­for­ma­tique In­so and the se­cond, with Com­pu­gen inc., is worth $13 974.38.

Ka­rate in Saint-Laurent

In or­der to in­vest in Saint-Laurent’s ath­letes, the bo­rough coun­cil will give $4 034.56 to se­ven re­si­dents, six ath­letes and their coach, to help fi­nance a trip to Bri­tish Co­lum­bia in which they took part, to par­ti­ci­pate to a Ka­rate Cham­pion­ship from May 11 to 13.

Hel­ping those who need it most

The bo­rough coun­cil has awar­ded two grants for a to­tal of $ 25,217 in or­der to help re­si­dents from Hodge-Place-Be­noît and Cha­me­ran. The first grant of to $ 14 165 will go to Car­re­four Jeu­nesse Em­ploi and its pro­gram « Anim’Ac­tion Cha­me­ran. The se­cond grant of $11,054 goes to Centre com­mu­nau­taire Bon Cou­rage Place Be­noît. This amount will go to the pro­ject «Éveil à la ci­toyen­ne­té par les Arts et la cul­ture.»
