Council Summary

    PUBLICATION OF THE MUNICIPALITY’S FIRST ANNUAL REPORT
    Implementation of the Municipality’s 2019–2023 Strategic Plan got underway in 2019. Numerous projects that tie in with the strategic plan’s objectives got their start or were finalized. At the March 2 Council meeting, the Municipality’s director general and secretary-treasurer, Marco Déry, presented Council with the Municipality’s annual activity report for 2019. The 2019 Annual Report outlines the Municipality’s main achievements in the past year by department and the projects slated for 2020.

    YARD SALE – PILOT PROJECT
    Many Québec municipalities set specific days for yard sales. As part of a pilot project to get as many yard sales as possible happening on the same weekend, the Municipality would like to make May 16, 17, and 18, 2020, yard sale days in La Pêche. The Municipality will therefore be waiving the fee for yard sale permits for those three days, though permits will still be mandatory. La Pêche residents who want to hold a yard sale on the May long weekend can register online. A registration form will be available throughout the month of April on the municipal website.

    UNION DES MUNICIPALITÉS DU QUÉBEC TO PURCHASE LARGE BINS AND SMALL KITCHEN BINS FOR COMPOSTABLE WASTE COLLECTION
    In April 2019, Council tasked Solinov with conducting a study to compare two composting approaches for our Municipality: home composting and curbside collection. Solinov submitted its report in August 2019, recommending curbside collection. Council has since declared that it would like to collaborate with MRC de la Vallée-de-la-Gatineau. By expanding its current composting site, that MRC could compost all compostable waste coming from its own MRC and neighbouring MRCs, including La Pêche. The project is still unfolding. With this resolution, Council is asking Union des municipalités du Québec to include La Pêche in its group purchase agreement for large bins and small kitchen bins for compostable waste collection.

    RESIDENTS NAMED TO THE RECREATION, CULTURE AND COMMUNITY LIVING COMMISSION (RCCL)
    In May 2019, Council tasked the RCCL with consulting residents, stakeholders, and partners on recreation and leisure in our municipality. The majority of the people on the commission are residents. As a result of the selection and interview process, this resolution names the following residents to the commission: Marie-Claude Gauthier, Manon Lafontaine, Annie Lesage, Renée-Pier Philippe, Murielle Renaud, Denis Gervais, and Benoit Philippe. The Municipality thanks them in advance for their involvement!

    A NEW HELPER MECHANIC
    During its November 4, 2019 meeting, Council created a new helper mechanic position for the preventive maintenance of our machinery and equipment fleet. The goal is to reduce the current pressure on repair budgets, unexpected equipment failures, and their impact on operations. Council is awarding the permanent, full-time position to Alex Ladouceur. Congratulations, Alex!
