4.1. A municipal corporation whose territory is included in that of the Communauté urbaine de l’Outaouais may, with the approval of the Government, pass a resolution to exclude itself from the jurisdiction of the Community.
The clerk of the municipal corporation shall transmit a certified copy of the resolution passed pursuant to the first paragraph to the Community by bailiff or by registered or certified mail. The Minister shall inform the corporation and the Community in writing of the decision of the Government.
If the resolution is approved by the Government, the Community shall cease to have jurisdiction with regard to the municipal corporation from 1 January following the lapse of the 12 month period following the day on which the copy of the resolution is received by the Community.
In the case provided for in the third paragraph, the municipal corporation is not required to contribute to the payment of the expenses incurred by the Community in matters of assessment, for every fiscal year, from the first year commencing after the lapse of the 12 month period referred to in the said paragraph. However, it shall pay to the Community, where applicable, a sum to cover the expenses incurred by the latter to retain an employee whose services are no longer required as a result of a decision of the municipal corporation, to terminate his employment, or to maintain equipment or material which, for the same reason, has become useless or superfluous.
In the case provided for in the third paragraph, the municipal corporation shall pay to the Community its aliquot share of the expenses incurred by the latter in matters of assessment for every fiscal year prior to those referred to in the fourth paragraph.
The third paragraph does not apply if the resolution passed under the first paragraph is repealed and a certified copy of the repealing resolution is transmitted to the Community, in the manner provided for in the second paragraph, before the time limit fixed in accordance with a by-law passed under subparagraph 3 of the seventh paragraph or, failing such a by-law, before 1 January following the lapse of the 12 month period referred to in the third paragraph. The repealing resolution does not require the approval of the Government; the clerk of the corporation must, however, transmit a certified true copy of the resolution to the Minister.
The council of the Community may, by by-law:
(1) determine rules permitting the establishment of the sum referred to in the fourth paragraph or the aliquot share referred to in the fifth paragraph;
(2) determine the terms and conditions applicable to the payment of that sum or aliquot share, including the interest on any sum exigible;
(3) fix the time before which a certified copy of the resolution repealing the resolution passed under the first paragraph must be transmitted to the Community, in the manner provided for in the second paragraph, in order to avoid the application of the third paragraph.
