Following the article published in Le Droit on January 8th, 2019 and the article in The Review published on January 9th 2019 regarding the sports complex in Limoges, The Nation Municipality would like to provide clarifications. By no means did the municipality have a lack of transparency towards its citizens. The 2001 Municipal Act clearly indicates that Council meetings are open to the public, with a few exceptions, such as: when the subject matter is related to litigation or potential litigation, including matters before administrative tribunals, affecting the municipality or local board (2001, c. 25, s. 239 (2e)). Therefore, we understand your frustrations, but in a situation like this one, it is impossible to disclose any information without facing potential legal consequences.
We would like to assure you that all of the information that we are allowed to disclose will always be shared with you. Rest assured that the project of the sports complex and community centre in Limoges will move forward. In fact, during the Council meeting on January 7th, 2019, the municipal council announced that the four architectural firms that they chose and approved will now be invited to submit a proposition for the construction of the sports complex and community centre. Council also released a tentative date for the completion of the construction, which is December 31st, 2020.
Please note that the municipality will not be issuing any other messages on this subject. We thank you for your understanding!
