Town Hall and Municipal Buildings

As of Monday, June 14, Town Hall and all municipal buildings will reopen to the public. However, when possible, citizens will be invited to opt for exchanges, payment, and transmission of documents electronically (info@ville.rosemere.qc.ca) or by phone, at 450621-3500. Appointments will be strongly recommended, as the majority of municipal employees will remain in teleworking mode. Face-to-face meetings will be held in the reception or council chambers, where it will be easier to encourage physical distance.


Council and Plenary Sessions

On June 14, the regular Council meeting and the open discussion period preceding it (plenary) will be held virtually. Citizens are invited to send in their questions or register for the Plenary and/or Council session to ask questions directly to elected officials.

In July, health measures permitting, these events will be held in person.


Library

As of May 31, library hours will return to normal. Work tables will also be available without a reservation.

  • Monday to Thursday: 1:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
  • Friday and Saturday: 10 a.m. to 5p.m.
  • Sunday: 12 noon to 4:30 p.m.

The online and telephone reservation service will be maintained for the summer, as well as the contactless pick-up.

The collections are accessible to citizens, as is the digital loan service which is available at all times. Document returns are done through the book drop only, and late fees are applied.

Tax relied until July

The Town has decided to maintain a 0% interest rate on unpaid tax accounts for citizens and merchants until July 5, 2021.

In concrete terms, this measure allows citizens to defer payments scheduled for March 3, and May 3, inclusively without financial impact until July 5, 2021. This decision will be reviewed as the situation evolves for future payments.

Please note that citizens must send their payment by check (by mail or drop it in the mailbox at Town Hall) or electronically through their financial institution's website.



Swimming pool and Sports Fields

The deconfinement plan does not affect the online reservation process, which remains the same, but capacities will be increased, if necessary. The pool is scheduled to open on June 19.

Rosemère en santé race will take the form of a virtual challenge to be completed at home.


Community and Cultural Activities

At this time, it is not possible to reveal summer programming. However, the Town confirms that Rosemère residents will be able to enjoy summer concerts, outdoor cinema, family shows in the parks, as well as the great Citizens’ Day (date and format still to be determined).

The Town is also announcing the return of a much-loved tradition, Rosemère’s public market. This will be an opportunity to discover the products of many regional producers.


Garage sales

The Town of Rosemère is still waiting for the Public Health Department’s opinion on this matter.

Vaccination campaign against covid-19

In order to support seniors who do not have access to transportation, the Town of Rosemère has decided to improve its TAXIBUS service and has added the Blainville and Boisbriand vaccination centers to the list of approved destinations.

It is therefore possible to take advantage of the TAXIBUS service to go to the vaccination center to receive your vaccine and then return.

This service is offered at a modest cost of $1 to go / $1 to return, payable to the driver.

You must have an appointment at the Blainville or Boisbriand vaccination center before you can reserve the TAXIBUS.

COVID-19: A Self-Care Guide

The Quebec government has developed a self-care guide to help citizens make the best possible decisions for their health and their loved ones during the pandemic. This guide will help you find out the best ways to protect yourself, learn about the basic care to give to those around you, and find out who and when to consult. Download it now from the MSSS Web site. An English version is available. (https://publications.msss.gouv.qc.ca/msss/document-002491/)


**A new reporting form is now available on the Régie de police Thérèse-De Blainville's Web site.

A new reporting form is now available on the Régie de police Thérèse-De Blainville website. Citizens who witness behaviour that does not comply with the rules related to COVID-19 can use it for non-urgent cases. Click here to access the form.  

One of the objectives is to relieve congestion in the 911 service and to lighten the workload of the dispatchers who must respond to the many complaints. A police officer will receive the forms and a follow-up will be done according to priorities. It is possible that interventions will sometimes be done over the phone. Citizens are asked not to call 911 to report a gathering or other non-urgent situations in order to avoid clogging the telephone lines of the 911 emergency centres.

If you witness a serious situation on our territory that requires police intervention, you can go to the RIPTB web page and fill out the form or contact the police at 450 435-2421 ext. 0. 

Awareness and information are the approaches favoured by all police forces in Quebec at the present time. Police officers are present and will continue to intervene, while respecting the powers granted to them in the context of a health emergency.
