MUNICIPALITY OF PONTIAC – Council met by teleconference on May 12.
Public questions (received beforehand) Lise Sincennes and Julie Robert complained about speeding on ch Crégheur.
The speed limit should be reduced to 40 km/h from 70 km/h, they said. Mayor Joanne Labadie replied that this will be brought up at the road committee meeting next week.
Andrea Goffart asked when the final section of ch de la Montagne will be repaired. Labadie explained all the studies, plans and engineer’s specifications are complete, but the issue is cost; $1.8 million was budgeted, but the lowest
tender was $3.4 million. Council will decide soon how to proceed.
Xavier Daneau-Ferland recently renovated a cottage and rents it out for a few weeks in the summer. His evaluation has increased from $135,700 to $335,700, with the resulting tax bill going from $1,100 to $4,000. Labadie explained that evaluations are done by the MRC-des-Collines, not the municipality, and
he should contact their evaluation department.
Public works
The department will buy 4,500 tonnes of gravel for roadwork, including replacing 30 culverts, for a maximum of $45,000. Since there are several local gravel pits, the gravel will be purchased according to the best availability of the size of gravel required, cost, and distance from the work sites.
The contract for renewing the sewage system on Saint-Andrew and Saint-John streets in Quyon specified that supervision fees would be a percentage of the value of the contract. TGC Inc. was awarded the contract for $1,767,185 and Équipe Laurence tendered to supervise for 3.1% of the value, an additional $33,083 over the municipality’s estimate. This work is eligible for a TECQ grant (gas tax).
A majority voted in favour of paying $6,882 for a feasibility study on using LED light fixtures in street lights. Council reiterated their desire to go ahead with an agreement with the Fédération québécoise des municipalités to award the contract to Énergère for replacing the lights.
The developer of Domaine des Chutes will pay the fees for creating a drainage servitude on two lots on ch de l’Aventure, the new road on the north side of ch Hôtel de Ville in Luskville. Ditches have been dug, leading to the Crique Alarie - the stream that forms the Luskville Falls and continues west across
ch Alary. The servitude allows the municipality access to the ditch.
Financial assistance during the Covid-19 crisis
The following amounts are approved for a total of $9,500: Maison de la famille de Quyon, $8,000; Centre Kogaluk, $500; and Table autonome des Aînés, $1000. Council will support other community organizations when they resume activities.
Roads
The Ministry of Transport changed the financing of interurban transport, increasing their grant from $150,000 to $185,000. As a result, the municipality’s contribution to Transcollines is reduced to $11,309 for 12 months.
