After a little over two years as interim Director General, Mr. André Lapointe was officially appointed Director General of the City of Boisbriand during the meeting of the city council on February 1.
With 32 years of experience in municipal administration in Boisbriand, including nearly 15 years as director of the Engineering Department, Mr. Lapointe’s appointment was unanimously supported by the members of council.
“I particularly want to highlight Mr. Lapointe’s considerable contribution over the past 24 months, but also since he joined the City. His dedication and unwavering support for elected officials, staff members and the public are undeniable,” said Christine Beaudette, Mayor of the City of Boisbriand.
“Knowing that he shares the same determination as the municipal council to offer the citizens of Boisbriand services that meet their expectations, it is with conviction that we are handing over the helm of the municipal administration to him,” added the mayor.
During his long career with the Engineering Department of the City of Boisbriand, he contributed to several large-scale projects, including the upgrading of the wastewater treatment plant, the implementation of selective collection in three lanes as well as the construction of numerous municipal infrastructures, including the Maison du Citoyen, the Recreation Center and the outdoor municipal swimming pool.
“It is with honor and pride that I accept this position. I believe that the experience I acquired at the City of Boisbriand will allow me to meet this challenge with confidence. I would like to thank the Board for the confidence it has shown in me by delegating this responsibility to me,” said the new Director General.
Mr. Lapointe will assume the duties of Acting Director of Engineering Services until the arrival of his successor.
