Regular meeting for the month of April 2020 – Special procedures

The Ministerial Order 2020-004, decreed by the Minister of Health and Social Services on March 15, 2020, authorizes municipalities to hold closed session council meetings and authorizes elected officials to participate using all types of communications.

Similar to most other towns, New Richmond decided to take advantage of this possibility to minimize the risk of propagation of the Coronavirus at a public meeting where the members of the Council and citizens would participate in person.

In the interest of transparency, the Town will publish the recorded meeting of April 6, 2020 on its web site at a later date. This meeting will take place by video conferencing, in compliance with current criteria.

We invite citizens who have pertinent questions for our elected officials to submit them in writing to the following e-mail address: between now and Monday, April 6, 2020 at 16h00. We assure you that all pertinent questions submitted will be answered during the question period.

While this situation is not ideal, New Richmond considers it acceptable under the current circumstances. If necessary, the Town will make all the necessary improvements in function of the evolution of the situation.
