Six residents availed themselves of their right to question the Council of Elected Officials. Among them, Mr. Slutsky was concerned about the draft regulation on oil heaters and to what extent, according to him, it could affect citizens and especially seniors. Mayor Philippe Roy reassured him by saying that there was no draft by-law yet.
Romana Rogoshewska's question was addressed to Councilor Michelle Setlakwe who will be running for mayor of Mount Royal next fall, with a renewed team of Councilors apart from Jonathan Lang. The citizen was worried about the team's limited experience in municipal politics. Mayor Philippe Roy felt that this question was too political and could not be answered in a city council meeting.
A Sustainable Development Plan… to come
Ms. Bollé asked where and when will we see the City's 2021 Sustainable Development Plan (PDD). "The pandemic will have delayed our work on this next PDD 2021. The team is working hard and the presentation is scheduled for this summer. "
Ghislaine Pedneault was worried about the funding and why of the complete renovation of the Mount Royal fire station on Roosevelt Avenue. "It must be rebuilt for reasons of bringing up to standards and necessary modernization", explained Mayor Roy "In addition to meeting these new standards, it was necessary to ensure the safety of employees but also better working conditions in terms of heating, ventilation, space and technical equipment. And as agreed in the agreement between the Montreal Fire Department (SIM), they will pay their share of these renovations, ”he concluded.
