Arrondissement de Rivière-des-Prairies–Pointe-aux-Trembles

The citizen wishes to revamp his vehicular lane and his garage which had been condemned by the former owner. To that end, a public tree located beside the lane must be cut down. The Borough claims $2,599 in compensation fees.

After analysis of the applicable By-law, the OdM concludes that its wording does not allow the billing of such fees in this specific context, i.e. situations where the request to cut down a tree is accessory to an application for a Transformation Permit.

The Borough finally comes to term with our position: no compensation fees will be billed in this instance.
