Saint-la­zare re­sident cards off to good start

L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

Thou­sands of Saint-la­zare re­si­dents have al­rea­dy been is­sued free re­sident iden­ti­fi­ca­tion cards un­der a pro­gram the town un­vei­led last month. The new cards that have re­pla­ced li­bra­ry cards are man­da­to­ry for anyone li­ving in the town that wants to re­gis­ter for or par­ti­ci­pate in sports, re­crea­tio­nal or cultu­ral ac­ti­vi­ties. The town says the cards will sim­pli­fy the re­gis­tra­tion pro­cess for all mu­ni­ci­pal ac­ti­vi­ties.

And do­zens of re­si­dents see­med to agree du­ring a re­gis­tra­tion cam­pai­gn that took place two weeks ago. Nan­cy Anne Hope, who has li­ved in Saint-la­zare for the past 20 years, thinks the cards will “make it ea­sier” to si­gn up­for tow­nac­ti­vi­ties.

The cards, that will be good for a per­iod of five years, fea­ture a white back­ground, a pho­to of the card hol­der and a lar­ger pho­to­graph of a woo­ded area of Saint-la­zare that was ta­ken by lo­cal photographer Pe­ter Zee­man.

Those who have not yet ob­tai­ned the new card can do so at the town’s re­crea­tion department, or li­bra­ry, both lo­ca­ted at 1301, rue du Bois. Proof of re­si­dence in­clu­ding a dri­ver’s li­cense, mu­ni­ci­pal or school tax bill, a Hy­dro or te­le­phone bill is re­qui­red, as is a form of iden­ti­fi­ca­tion that could in­clude a pas­sport, student ID card, health in­su­rance card or dri­ver’s li­cense. Pho­tos of card hol­ders are ta­ken du­ring re­gis­tra­tion. For in­for­ma­tion, call 450 424-8000, ext. 220.
