The City of Dorval wishes to share new information with its citizens, as well as reiterate some measures already put in place by the municipality in regards to COVID-19.
Permit Requests by Appointment
In order to answer permit requests, which are increasing, the Urban Planning Department will be offering an in-person service, by appointment only, as of Wednesday, May 13. Here is the procedure to schedule an appointment:
- Contact the Urbain Planning Department by phone at 514 633-4125 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We will set up an appointment time for you to pass by 60 Martin Avenue in order to obtain your permit or your certificate of authorization.
In order for you to have your construction, renovation, and demolition (CRD) debris, your large objects, and your branches picked up, you must first contact Public Works at 514 633-4046 or put in an online request (www.city.dorval.qc.ca). This facilitates the work of City employees and allows for better coordination of the numerous requests.
Specific instructions for each type of pickup, available on the City’s website, must be respected. A non-compliance notice will be handed out to residents who do not respect them and collection fees may be charged to property owners.
Please note, however, that it is currently impossible to guarantee that on-call pickups will be made within the 7 business days usually planned. This situation can be explained by an exceptionally high number of requests and the fact that Public Works is operating with reduced personnel due to distancing instructions related to COVID-19.
Continue Respecting Guidelines
Despite the recent openness from the Quebec government concerning outings for citizens age 70 and over, the City of Dorval reminds everyone that it is important to remain vigilant towards COVID-19 and invites all Dorval residents to follow hygiene instructions (santemontreal.qc.ca/en/public). The Direction régionale de santé publique, along with the City of Dorval, also recommend the use of a mask for anyone in a public place where the 2-metre physical distancing is not possible.
We also remind you to avoid gatherings in parks, in front of houses, in the streets, and everywhere else. In order to avoid overloading the 911 emergency centres’ phone lines, citizens are asked not to call 911 to report a gathering. If you wish to denounce a situation going against the government’s guidelines and instructions related to the coronavirus, please fill out an online form at https://spvm.qc.ca/en/Pages/Report-an-event/COVID19–Report-a-situation-online, or call the City’s Public Security at 514 633-4046.
Please visit www.city.dorval.qc.ca regularly for periodic updates on the evolution of the COVID-19 situation in Dorval.
Lastly, citizens are also invited to call 514 630-2123 if they experience symptoms such as a cough or fever, difficulty breathing or sudden loss of sense of smell or taste without nasal congestion.
