At a regular meeting on Tuesday, the Maritime Community tabled a draft borrowing by-law of $2.4 million, repayable over 25 years, to carry out upgrading work at the Residual Materials Management Centre.
Magdalen taxpayers need not worry about the impact of the CGMR’s facelift on their next tax bill, says interim mayor Gaétan Richard.
The municipal council also resolved to modify the current land use plan to allow the production of wind energy on the territory of the Municipality of Grosse-Île, at the request of the latter in the context of discussions with Hydro-Quebec regarding the creation of a wind farm.
The elected officials also decided to approve the $125 million loan bylaw submitted by the Régie intermunicipale de l’énergie Gaspésie-Îles-de-la-Madeleine to cover future expenses for possible wind power projects in the Gaspé Peninsula and the Lower St. Lawrence.
Gaétan Richard explains that this decision does not involve any financial contribution from the Maritime Community.
In addition, due to water infiltration in the building, municipal services and the library located in the East Capitol will be relocated to the Notre-Dame-du-Sacré-Coeur school and the 50+ Club.
The move will be temporary until a new community center is built in Grande-Entrée.
