The Town of Montreal West opened a register on February 14, 2023 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. with respect to By-law 2023-001 ordering the construction of a new sports and recreation center and authorizing a loan of $27 318 686 for this purpose.
The number of signatures required to force a referendum was 391. The Town received a total of 329 signatures. Therefore, By-law 2023-001 is deemed to have been approved by those eligible to vote and will be forwarded to the ministère des Affaires municipales et de l’habitation for approval.
As promised, Town Council has committed to holding a vote following the opening of the bids. At that time, we will present residents with the total cost of the project as well as the projected impact on your tax bill. The bidding period ends on March 17. A resolution announcing Council’s intent to hold a vote will be passed at the February 27 council meeting.
