Josianne Hudon is back to work as the mu­nic­i­pal­ity’s Gen­eral Di­rec­tor after her ma­ter­nity leave. The coun­cil is work­ing on an em­ployee man­ual and has two is­sues to fi­nal­ize for it: the RRSP con­tri­bu­tions and em­ployee in­surance.

Three of the town’s em­ploy­ees, Ms. Hudon, Mr. Du­quette and Do­minic Gau­thier, the town’s build­ing in­spec­tor, will take part in a mu­nic­i­pal train­ing pro­vided by the ADMQ (As­so­ci­a­tion des Di­recteurs mu­nic­i­paux de Que­bec) at $278 per per­son. The train­ing will pro­vide a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of the roles of Di­rec­tor Gen­eral and En­vi­ron­ment and Build­ing In­spec­tors re­gard­ing pro­ce­dures, project anal­y­sis, draft­ing and im­ple­ment­ing reg­u­la­tions, du­ties and pow­ers.

Coun­cil au­tho­rized the pur­chase of $3,809 worth of com­mu­ni­ca­tion equip­ment to bet­ter equip its fire depart­ment. After tak­ing inventory of the fire-fight­ing equip­ment, some of it was found to be ob­so­lete and the Fire Chief was au­tho­rized to give some of that equip­ment away to Fire­fight­ers with­out Bor­ders.

The town will send a res­o­lu­tion to Canada Post to main­tain its cus­tomer ser­vice hours. Coun­cil also an­nounced that it sup­ported Phase II of the Place Stanstead project to add nine more apart­ment units to the com­plex.
