Coaticook MRC wants new rules for roads
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.
