Coat­i­cook MRC wants new rules for roads

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Coat­i­cook

Con­sid­er­ing the large num­ber of roads that be­came im­pass­able due to deep mud and huge ruts, etc. in the last few weeks on the ter­ri­tory of the Coat­i­cook MRC, the MRC has adopted a res­o­lu­tion ask­ing the Min­is­ter of Trans­port to be more flex­i­ble when it comes to de­ter­min­ing the de­frost­ing pe­riod which puts weight lim­its on trucks.

The Coat­i­cook MRC has de­cided to fi­nance the in­stal­la­tion of a net­work of pub­lic elec­tric car bat­tery charg­ing sta­tions on its ter­ri­tory to be­come part of the Cir­cuit elec­trique d’Hy­dro-Que­bec. The new in­fra­struc­tures will ac­com­mo­date vis­i­tors and cit­i­zens with elec­tric cars. The pro­ject will in­clude the in­stalling of a fast-charg­ing sta­tion (400v) in the town of Coat­i­cook and at least five more stan­dard re-charg­ing sta­tions (240v) around the ter­ri­tory in ar­eas yet to be con­firmed be­fore the end of 2016.

A con­tract has been given to the firm NeoGis to iden­tify and char­ac­terise fal­low agri­cul­tural land for the PDZA. The cost of the con­tract is $8,631. The Coat­i­cook MRC will hold its an­nual golf tour­na­ment on July 7th at the Dufferin Heights Golf Club. The pro­ceeds help to fi­nance the Fete de la famille. A con­sul­ta­tion com­mit­tee has been cre­ated to study adapted trans­port and pub­lic trans­port needs. Any­one who wishes to give their opin­ion about the lo­cal needs can call Mar­tine Lebel at 819 849-7083, ext. 241.
