LaSalle Public Consultations March 25
The borough of LaSalle plans to consult its citizens about five different proposed bylaws on March 25 at Borough Hall, 55, avenue Dupras at 7:30 p.m.
Two proposed bylaws concern shared parking spots near Metro stations. The other three concern the installation of telecommunication antennas and supports for antennas.
Several citizens asked noteworthy questions during the same meeting.
Joseph Pugliese asked why the owner of the vacant lot 1234071 between the Legion and the Apero Condos pay a total of only $190.07 in property taxes while their neighbours pay thousands.
Steven Laperrière* asked why Richard Deschamps and Manon Barbe supported the Montreal budget after speaking against it during the last borough meeting.
We’ve asked M. Coderre to give us an idea of what might happen over the next five years,” responded Barbe. “Our second point was that we hoped that we could review the “dotation” given to boroughs. There’s a committee made up of elected and bureaucrats to look at it.”
Sonia Susnjar* asked the borough to offer more clarity on meeting agendas and complained in particular about the motion to accept six uni-family residences on Boulevard LaSalle between Alepin and Allion.
Last month’s agenda included an item that noted the addition of a terrasse to a particular site,” she said. “At the meeting, the motion was changed to constructing six buildings on the site. That seems like a bigger change than last minute discussions would imply.”
