Three loan bylaws for the City of Chateauguay are objects of register procedure in January.
Translation Dan Rosenburg
One loan is for $2.1 million to convert public lighting to the DEL system throughout the municipality’s territory and two others are for $700,000 apiece. One of these is to do the transition of work stations to Windows 10 and Office 2019. The other is to produce repairs and refitting works in the parks, as well as the acquisition of equipment there. All three loans are over a five-year period,
Since the procedure prescribed by law foresees it, the citizens opposed to one or more of these loans will be able to sign the register at City Hall from January 13-17, between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., indicates the City in a public notice published on December 16 on its website.
By signing, the person is asking for the holding of a voting referendum. ‘The number of applications needed to require that a referendum poll be held is 3,654 for each of these bylaws. If this number is not reached, the bylaws will be deemed approved by qualified voters,’’ the notice specifies.
In the case where the number of signatures is reached, the municipal council can hold a referendum or abandon the bylaw and renounce the project that it had to finance.
