Following the latest announcements from the Government of Quebec and the Quebec Public Health Department regarding the coronavirus COVID-19, the Village of Senneville wishes to assure its citizens that it is closely monitoring the evolution of the situation with the various government stakeholders.
Taking into account all the information and recommendations, specific measures are being implemented for the coming weeks.
The Town Hall and public work essential services have remained open under regular hours, however, we encourage alternative means of communication (telephone, email) rather than in person. To reach the administration, please contact
514-457-6020 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
For emergency situations related to municipal services or infrastructure outside office hours, please call 514 630-1234.
Meetings with municipal employees
No meetings with a municipal employee at Town Hall or any other municipal building will take place until further notice.
Several municipal employees will be working from home. It is therefore recommended to contact them by email.
Permits for construction work or other If you need a permit for construction work, tree cutting or other, please contact 514-457-6020 or email@example.com. An inspector will contact you within 48 hours to give you the steps to follow. This measure is in effect until further notice.
The George-McLeish Community Centre is closed until further notice thus, all planned public consultations, recreation activities or municipal events have been cancelled or suspended: Earth day, 125th anniversary celebrations, classes, etc.
Municipal Council sittings
Municipal Council sittings are required to be held at least once a month by law, a special decree was adopted by the Minister of Health and Social Services to allow a temporary exceptional measure be used by Council to allow in closed-door sessions granting municipal councils to continue to make necessary decisions for the functioning of the municipality and this, without compromising the health of elected officials and citizens.
As a result of this measure, an InfoConseil will be published in order to report on the Council's decisions.
Senneville neighborhood watch
