M. Perrault:

Can you put me in touch with your City clerk’s office? I would like to obtain information on the Town of Lennoxville: Council meeting minutes and budgets from the 1970s.

Per public records law, I am entitled to this information; I need to know the cost for copying and reproduction.

I thank you for your time.

Dear Mr. Allore:

Following your November 21st email with respect to obtaining access to city council minutes and municipal budgets of Lennoxville, please read the information below:

Minutes of the city council proceedings of the former municipality of Lennoxville may be examined at the City of Sherbrooke’s town hall during regular working hours. We are open from 8:30 am to 12:00 and 1:30 pm to 4:30 pm. However, since most of these minutes are archived, we kindly ask you to forewarn us of your visit by calling at least three days in advance so that we can have them delivered to our office and ready for examination. Upon receiving your call, we will also have the budgets of the City of Lennoxville since 1970 delivered to our office at the same time.

To obtain a copy of these documents, a fee of $0.33 per page is applicable.

Warm regards,

Manon Plourde, secrétaire de direction
Service des affaires juridiques
Tél. : (819) 821-5425



This might be of value to you: The budgets would tell you if the town was cutting police services in the 70s. The minutes might be very revealing; detailing frictions between the police and council.
