VERDUN, QC, May 13 /CNW Telbec/ - At a special Borough Council meeting yesterday (May 12), the Council members passed a resolution to cancel the contract that the Verdun Borough had recently signed with CBIA (Canadian Bureau of Investigations and Adjustments). This resolution took effect at 8 a.m. this morning.
This decision comes as the result of CBIA's failure to provide the security bond, as required under the contract that was awarded on April 26 of this year and that took effect on May 1. CBIA was therefore sent a formal demand to submit that document before midnight on May 10, failing which the Borough might recommend to Council that the contract be cancelled. This is what was done yesterday.
"We must ensure compliance with every clause of the contracts we award," stated Claude Trudel, Verdun Borough Mayor and member of the Executive Committee responsible for public safety and security.
A call for tenders is being prepared at the present time to award the patrolling contract on a continuous basis. In the meantime, and since 8 a.m. this morning, Gardium Sécurité is the firm that is carrying out patrols throughout the Verdun Borough and that will continue to do so, on a temporary, week-to-week basis. Residents shouldn't be surprised to see the same agents as they have chosen to join Gardium.
