The City of Longueuil has issued an overview of the various measures being taken to protect the public and municipal employees during the COVID-19 pandemic.
All essential services – drinking water supply, wastewater management and waste collection – are functioning normally. The City's entire workforce has been mobilized to ensure public services continue to be provided during these extraordinary circumstances.
Journée verte cancelled
The City has announced that Longueuil's Journée verte, scheduled for April 25, has been cancelled. The 1,000 trees normally distributed during this annual event will instead be used to repopulate wooded areas in Longueuil and to plant trees and other vegetation to help in the fight against the emerald ash borer.
The Municipal Court of Longueuil is closed to the public, although administrative activities are ongoing. All appearances scheduled will be postponed to a later date. Defendants and their counsel will receive a new notice of hearing. For emergencies, such as the actual or imminent suspension of a driver's licence, please contact the Municipal Court of Longueuil by phone (450-463-7006), fax (450-646-8897) or email (email@example.com).
Moisson Rive-Sud: Appeal to the community
In the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, there are ongoing needs within the community. “I would like to take the opportunity to encourage everyone in Longueuil to support Moisson Rive-Sud, an essential service for food security organizations in the Montérégie region. Monetary donations are currently the best way to lend a helping hand to fellow citizens in need,” said Mayor Sylvie Parent.
