5. A regional county municipality has jurisdiction in matters of assessment in a local municipality whose territory is included in its own, except in the case of a municipality governed by the Cities and Towns Act (chapter C-19).
However, it has jurisdiction in respect of a municipality governed by the Cities and Towns Act whose territory is included in its own, provided the whole municipality was subject to the jurisdiction in matters of assessment of a county corporation immediately before the latter ceased to exist. It also has jurisdiction in respect of a municipality governed by that Act whose territory is included in its own under articles 678.0.1 to 678.0.4 of the Municipal Code of Québec (chapter C-27.1)
Only the representatives of local municipalities that are under the jurisdiction of the regional county municipality pursuant to the first or second paragraph are qualified to participate in the deliberations and votes of the council of the regional county municipality in the exercise of its functions in matters of assessment. Only such local municipalities shall contribute to the payment of expenses resulting from such exercise. They cannot, in respect of such functions, exercise the right of withdrawal provided for in the third paragraph of section 188 of the Act respecting land use planning and development (chapter A-19.1).
