COVID-19 AND YOUR MUNICIPALITY
On March 18 : Following the latest government recommendations, the Municipality of Mille-Isles is implementing measures to limit the spread of Covid-19 virus among the population and to protect its employees. As a result, Town Hall will remain open, with restricted access for emergency situations only.
Services to the population will be maintained. However, many employees will assume these services by teleworking. In order to limit contagion, electronic communications are therefore favoured. No appointments will be made in person until further notice.
The Strong Community Hall is also closing its doors to the general public and all activities are suspended, with the exception of council meetings, which may be held behind closed doors if required. These are exceptional measures and will be temporary.
The Municipality wishes to offer its residents the best possible service under the circumstances. You will find below relevant information to this effect.
PAYMENT OF MUNICIPAL TAXES
The taxpayers of Mille-Isles are invited to give preference to the payment of municipal taxes according to the following methods of payment:
• By telephone or electronic banking service;

You must fill out the credit card authorization form found on the Municipality’s website and send it by mail to Chrystine Slight, administrative technician at 1262 Mille-Isles Road, Mille-Isles, Quebec J0R 1A0, by email at email@example.com or by fax at 450 438-6157.
In order to accommodate citizens and thus prioritize electronic and telephone payments, the municipal administration has decided to extend the deadline for the first payment from March 20, 2020 to May 15, 2020. Consequently, no penalty will be applied to your tax bill until May 15, 2020.

We ask all our citizens to respect the preventive recommendations of the provincial and federal governments. The watchword is “stay home”. We are responsible for our own safety and it is up to each of us to fulfill our social duty. Therefore, if you know someone in quarantine or an elderly person who is in isolation, do not hesitate to offer your help, for example, to go to the grocery store or the pharmacy. And if you notice that a neighbour seems to be in distress, due to his state of health or isolation, we invite you to contact us so that we can find resources for him. This is good neighbourliness as the Mille-Islois know how to do.
If you have concerns about your health, the CISSS des Laurentides invites you to contact the general line 1 877 644-4545. A nurse will assess your situation and make appropriate recommendations.
In addition, the CISSS des Laurentides has opened a clinic designated COVID-19 by appointment only. For more information, consult the press release by visiting www.santelaurentides.gouv.qc.ca.

MILLE-ISLES ROAD INFORMATION
On January 3, 2020, Mille-Isles Road had to be closed due to a risk of subsidence between Patriot and Patterson Roads. A detour via Tamaracouta and Black Road was therefore proposed.
Recently, the Mille-Isles Road has been partially reopened. Traffic warning lights have been installed to secure the area at risk of subsidence. The ministère des Transports has also carried out temporary work to allow traffic to alternate between Tamaracouta and Black Roads.
Given the current condition of the road, further major work will be required to fully reopen the road. According to MTQ indications, this work is scheduled for spring 2020.
In the meantime, it is very important to follow the signs in place for your safety.
If you have any complaints, we encourage you to contact the MTQ by telephone at 511 or by internet at www.quebec511.info under the “Contact Us” tab by filling out the online form in the “Internet” section. For your information, the MTQ prioritizes its interventions according to the number of complaints received for a given sector.
