The 15 suburban municipalities urgently call for a revision of the City’s inflationary budget

WESTMOUNT, January 12, 2018 – The 15 mayors of the suburban municipalities of the Montreal Island are urgently asking the Plante-Dorais administration to revise the inflationary budget that it submitted on Wednesday of this week. To everyone’s surprise, the new budget brings in tax hikes that are, on average, twice as high as in previous years and nearly six times the inflation rate for some of the Island’s municipalities!

“This increase is both unacceptable and unfair and must be rectified out of respect for taxpayers,” stated these 15 mayors. Collectively, their municipalities represent 246,000 Montreal Island residents who pay on average 50% of their municipal taxes to the Agglomeration. These people did not vote for such draconian tax hikes,” stated Beny Masella, President of the Association of Suburban Municipalities and Mayor of Montreal West.

While many Montrealers in the City’s 19 boroughs palpably expressed their dissatisfaction over this 3.3% increase, taxpayers in the 15 suburban municipalities are feeling even more aggrieved because they will see hikes of up to 9.8% of their assessments.

These 15 suburban municipalities face average contribution increases equivalent to 5.3% of their Agglomeration budget assessments which equates to three times the 1.7% inflation rate projected for 2018. These 246,000 taxpayers are thus looking at tax increases ranging from $30 to $440 per residence.

"As mayors and public administrators, we have the duty each year to make judicious choices between expenditures and tax rates that reflect the ability of our citizens to pay. This is one of the obligations of elected officials. Ms. Plante is Mayor of Montreal but she is also the leader of the Agglomeration and, in this capacity, she must consider the impact of her decisions on all taxpayers, including those in our 15 municipalities who pay half their taxes to the Agglomeration,” pointed out Georges Bourelle, Vice-President of the Agglomeration’s Finances and Administration Commission and Mayor of Beaconsfield.

There is a recent precedent in the City of Montreal where its administration urgently revised its budget after it had been tabled, in order to lessen the impact on taxpayers’ ability to pay and to fulfil its electoral promises.

“This is what we are seeking in this first Plante-Dorais budget and we are doing so on behalf of the quarter of a million people whom we represent on the Montreal Island. Budget growth must not exceed the inflation rate, which was one of the promises of the new administration. This is the spirit in which we all prepared our own local budgets, and it is in this spirit that we are asking for a revision of the Plante-Dorais budget,” said President Masella.

Working as partners 

The mayors of the 15 suburban municipalities are partners of the City of Montreal within the Agglomeration; they are familiar with the rigorous, demanding exercise involved in the preparation of a municipal budget and are offering to help Mayor Plante revise the budget in such a way as to ensure a balanced result.

“As always, we are acting as true partners, and it is our hope that Ms. Plante will fulfil her promise to treat us as partners in turn, in a spirit of respect for all taxpayers,” said Mr. Masella. 

Thanks to a revision of the City of Montreal’s budget in 2006, it was possible to contain the budget and fulfil the promises made to taxpayers during the electoral campaign.

The Montreal Island suburban municipalities linked to the City of Montreal represent the sixth largest population in Quebec (246,000) and the second largest economic power. These municipalities include Baie-D’Urfé, Beaconsfield, Côte-Saint-Luc, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Dorval, Hampstead, Kirkland, Dorval Island, Town of Mount Royal, Montreal East, Montreal West, Pointe-Claire, Sainte-Anne-de-Bellevue, Senneville and Westmount.

How to prevent frozen pipes and what to do when pipes do freeze?

As temperatures plummet, there is a risk of water pipes freezing in homes across the country.

Here's a list of tips from the Red Cross on how to prevent frozen pipes and what to do when pipes do freeze:

  • Keep garage doors closed if water supply lines are in the garage.
  • Open kitchen and bathroom cabinet doors to allow warmer air to circulate around the plumbing.
  • When the weather is very cold outside, let the cold water drip from the faucet served by exposed pipes. Running water through the pipe - even at a trickle - helps prevent pipes from freezing.
  • Keep the thermostat set to the same temperature both during the day and at night.
  • Leave the heat on in the home, even while out of town. Set to a temperature no lower than 13 C or 55 F.

How to Thaw Frozen Pipes

If only a trickle of water comes out when taps are turned on, suspect a frozen pipe. Here are some tips on what do when pipes freeze:

Likely places for frozen pipes include against exterior walls or where water service enters the home through the foundation.

Keep the faucet open while treating a frozen pipe and as the frozen area begins to melt, water will begin to flow through the frozen area. Running water through the pipe will help melt ice in the pipe.

Apply heat to the section of pipe using an electric heating pad wrapped around the pipe, an electric hair dryer, a portable space heater (kept away from flammable materials), or by wrapping pipes with towels soaked in hot water.

Do not use a blowtorch, kerosene or propane heater, charcoal stove, or other open flame device.

Apply heat until full water pressure is restored. If the frozen area can’t be found, if the frozen area is not accessible, or if the pipe cannot be thawed, call a licensed plumber.

Check all other faucets in the home to find out if there are additional frozen pipes. If one pipe freezes, others may freeze, too.

Future Protection

Consider relocating exposed pipes to provide increased protection from freezing. Pipes can be relocated by a professional if the home is remodeled.

Add insulation to attics, basements and crawl spaces. Insulation will maintain higher temperatures in these areas.

For more information, please contact a licensed plumber or building professional.

Dog owners invited to attend special meeting at City Hall January 8

The City of Côte Saint-Luc inviting dog owners to a special meeting on Monday, January 8 (7:30pm) in the Council Chamber of City Hall (5801 Cavendish Boulevard).

Councillor Mike Cohen, who is responsible for the Animal Protection portfolio, has asked two new councillors who are dog owners – Mitch Kujavsky and Oren Sebag – to join him at the podium along with Public Safety Director Jordy Reichson.

“The objective of this meeting is to begin the process of having an actual Dog Owners Committee established,” said Councillor Cohen. “Eight years ago we held such a public meeting for cat owners. The turnout was outstanding and as a result a very successful hard working committee was born.”

Councillor Cohen expects the subject of allowing dogs in parks (on leashes) to be a major topic of discussion. He has invited Diane Liebling, the chair of the CSL Cats Committee, to deliver opening remarks about what is needed to set up a successful committee.

Two years ago Councillor Cohen set up an ad hoc Dog Run Advisory Committee. It was headed by Abe Haim, who became a spokesman for dog owners using the Mackle Road facility. Haim proposed that a fence be constructed to sub-divide the area between small and large dogs. This was done in the fall. More recently, he requested that lighting be installed. That was done too. In the spring a new dog run will debut near Meadowbrook Golf Course on Côte Saint-Luc Road.

For more information about the meeting call 514-485- 6945 or e-mail mcohen@cotesaintluc.org.

Free paper bags for leaf and yard waste for Côte Saint-Luc residents

To help encourage residents to put garden waste at the curb, the City of Côte Saint-Luc is offering five free compostable bags to every household.

Bags are available at City Hall (5801 Cavendish Blvd.) weekdays between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm and at the Public Works Department (7001 Mackle Rd.) weekdays between 8 am and 4 pm. Proof of residency is required. Residents can purchase additional compostable bags from Côte Saint-Luc or from retailers. For more information about compostable bags, visit www.CoteSaintLuc.org/brownbin.

During the fall, households tend to produce more organic waste than can fit in their brown bin, due to the end of season cleanup of gardens and leaves on the ground. Residents are asked to put the overflow of leaves and grass clippings into compostable bags next to their brown bin on collection day.

The compostable bags are available while supplies last. Residents can contact info@cotesaintluc.org or 514-485-6800 for information.
