Granting of the mandate to the Union des municipalités du Québec for the purchase of collection bins
The Municipal Council mandated the Union des municipalités du Québec (UMQ) to prepare, on its behalf, a tender document for a group purchase of roll-out bins and mini kitchen bins for the collection of residual materials for the year 2023. This mandate will allow the UMQ to make a grouped purchase and thus reduce the cost of the bins per unit for the participating municipalities.
Thanks to employees and volunteers following the violent storm of May 21, 2022
On May 21, 2022, a severe thunderstorm hit several regions of Quebec and severely affected the Municipality of Chelsea. The storm left behind a lot of damage. Many of our residents were without electricity for several days. To mitigate the situation, the Municipality implemented several measures, including opening an assistance center allowing residents without electricity to take a shower, recharge their electronic devices, use WiFi, fill their water containers and meals were served. The library was also opened to welcome the residents. At the Council meeting, Council thanked all municipal employees, Meredith Centre employees and volunteers for their help and dedication following the devastating storm.
