L'Etoile - - IN OTHER WORDS -

In­cumbent Saint La­zare mayor Ro­bert Gri­mau­do joi­ned four of his six town coun­cil­lors Sa­tur­day du­ring an of­fi­cial meet and greet with more than 50 Saint La­zare re­si­dents.

The Nov. 9 event, held du­ring the mor­ning at Chez Mau­rice res­tau­rant and bar, was open to any re­si­dents in­ter­es­ted in spea­king with the mu­ni­ci­pal of­fi­cials, who were sworn in du­ring a Nov. 8 ce­re­mo­ny.

Gri­mau­do was joi­ned by coun­cil­lors Lise Jo­li­coeur (Dist. 1,) Pa­me­la Trem­blay (Dist. 2,) Serge Da­vid (Dist. 5,) and Ri­chard Na­taf (Dist. 6).

Though they had al­so been in­vi­ted, coun­cil­lors Bri­gitte As­se­lin (Dist. 3) and De­nis Briard, both of whom ran under the Al­liance Saint-La­zare ban­ner du­ring the elec­tion, did not at­tend Sa­tur­day’s pu­blic ga­the­ring. Gri­mau­do de­fea­ted Al­liance Saint-La­zare mayo­ral can­di­date Mi­chel Lam­bert du­ring the Nov. 3 elec­tion.

A spo­kes­per­son for the town did not say why the two coun­cil­lors were mis­sing from the mee­ting.

For his Gri­mau­do has said eve­ry elec­ted coun­cil­lor will be wel­co­med at all wor­king tables and cau­cus mee­tings.

The new team is ex­pec­ted to get to work right away on such dos­siers as ta­bling a bud­get, dis­cus­sing plans to build a roun­da­bout in Saint La­zare, and fun­ding the buil­ding of a new fire sta­tion. The next coun­cil mee­ting will take place on Nov. 19.
