LaSalle — The borough of LaSalle is pleased to launch the second edition of its participatory budget. This is a process that gives its residents decision-making power on how to spend part of the municipal budget. In 2024, an amount of $200,000 will be devoted to carrying out projects submitted by and for LaSalle residents. A total of $200,000 from the Borough’s operating budget has been earmarked for the 2024 participatory budget. Of this budget allocation, $50,000 comes from the Comité de transition écologique de LaSalle (CTÉL) and will be used to fund one or more projects related to this theme.
