MONTREAL, June 20, 2011 /CNW Telbec/ - Mr. Rémi Racine, Chairman of the
board of Stationnement de Montréal, today responded to the submission
of the audit report for the bike share service project (BIXI) by
stating that his organization intended to comply with the
recommendations made by the Auditor General.
"We intend to make all the necessary adjustments to our management
practices. The board of directors has also clearly shown its
willingness to prioritize respect for the principles and rules of good
governance within the organization."
It should be noted that Stationnement de Montréal has already taken all
necessary measures to respect the rules of adjudication for City of
Mr. Racine also pointed out that Stationnement de Montréal had installed
a new management team since his arrival in April 2010. Over the last
year, the new management team has made the regulation of activities
linked to the BIXI project a priority, working in close collaboration
with the City of Montréal.
"The results are already visible as the implementation of a new funding
plan for BIXI has allowed Stationnement de Montréal to be fully repaid
the advances it made to the project. Today, we no longer have any
formal connection with BIXI," stated Mr. Racine.
"As BIXI is now a totally independent organization, the management team
of Stationnement de Montréal intends to concentrate entirely on
accomplishing its mission," concluded the Chairman.
