65.15. The expenses actually incurred by a member of the council on behalf of the municipality must, in each case, be previously authorized by the council. The council approves payment thereof upon presentation of a statement accompanied with the related vouchers.
The council may, by by-law, establish a tariff applicable in cases where expenses are incurred for an activity or class of activities carried out in Québec and not for the object of travel outside Québec. The payment of the amount prescribed in the tariff for an expense incurred by a member of the council on behalf of the municipality is approved by the council upon presentation of a statement accompanied with any voucher required by by-law.
The council may appropriate, out of the moneys not otherwise appropriated from the general fund of the municipality, sufficient sums to ensure the repayment of a category of expenses which may be incurred by the members of the council on behalf of the municipality during the fiscal period, whether these expenses are actually incurred or prescribed in the tariff. The council is not required to previously authorize any expense included in such a category and incurred after the appropriation, if it does not exceed the balance of the sums appropriated, after subtracting those already used or committed for the repayment of previous expenses.
