Frustrated Ile-Bizard residents want borough mayor to resign

Residents of Ile Bizard are calling for the resignation of Mayor Normand Marinacci after a frustrating council meeting on Tuesday night.

Many residents, still unable to walk or drive up their street to get into their homes were hoping Tuesday night's council meeting would shed some light on their situation. Concerns and questions about the property value of their homes and what will be done in the future to prevent this from happening again were met with what many are saying were smug remarks from borough Mayor Normand Marinacci. 

"I don't believe he's learned anything since the previous years and I don't think he'll learn or care to learn in the upcoming years" says Scott a resident of Ste Genivieve. 

Scott is one of many residents calling for the mayor's resignation. 

"I'm going to put together a petition and I'm going to get the signatures it takes to set up for his resignation" he added.

It remains unclear what the future holds for home owners who live in what are now considered flood zones. Some residents are complaining that their land is now considered a risk even though they didn't flood. They were told by council they could contest the evaluation of their home.
