Stanstead per­mits awarded af­ter the fact

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Staff Stanstead

Ask for a con­struc­tion per­mit need­ing the ap­proval of the coun­cil in Stanstead and chances are that you will have com­pleted the work be­fore it is awarded. This was the case for four of the four per­mits awarded last Mon­day: the con­struc­tion per­mit at the Colby-Cur­tis, two signs down­town at Check­point Char­lie and La Vieille Douane and a house in Beebe that was

re­painted. The town is aware of the sit­u­a­tion and will try to ap­ply some cor­rec­tive mea­sures.

Since Ar­lie Fearon and his crew are back in town to do the garbage, there will be a sav­ing for the town of more than $18,000 plus an un­told amount in headache pills that were con­sumed by res­i­dents over the last year.

You have a choice: you can pay a fine of $30 for a first of­fence if you do not fol­low the new night park­ing fee of $50 a year. It was $50 a month be­fore.

Hélène Hamel, for­merly of Stanstead Col­lege, will stay in town as the per­son re­spon­si­ble for the Vil­lage-Re­lais pro­gram which is fully funded by the

Min­istère du Trans­port du Québec, the same folks who are re­spon­si­ble for the new, and dan­ger­ous, street mark­ings on Fair­fax. Guy Ouellet is the new pro-mayor. Fi­nally, in a nice ges­ture not seen too of­ten in coun­cils that we cover, Coun­cil­lor Michelle Richard asked for for­give­ness for the rude way that she treated a ci­ti­zen two months ago.

Pro-mayor Guy Ouellet.
