Over the past few weeks, some lakefront property owners on Lake Memphremagog or the Tomifobia River have seen their docks, boathouses or access to the lake flooded. In some cases, the retreating waters have left them with damaged structures to repair, and in others with shores to stabilize. We remind you that all work on the shoreline and littoral requires a municipal permit. This permit authorizes work for a specific period and subject to specific conditions. Works benefiting from acquired rights can be repaired by obtaining a permit beforehand. However, when repairs involve working underwater, authorization from the ministère de Faune is required, and is a condition in order to get the municipal permit.
You should also be aware that any work carried out without a permit can result in substantial fines and penalties at both the municipal and provincial levels. These penalties apply not only to property owners, but also to any contractor or person who carries out such work without first obtaining a permit.
When it comes to cleaning up debris or algae littering shorelines, no municipal permit is required.
Please do not hesitate to contact the municipal inspector by telephone or e-mail for any information or to obtain the documents required to submit an application.

The Municipality of Ogden is inviting its citizens to a free and bilingual information session to answer questions about tick-borne diseases such as Lyme disease. We expect the situation to evolve again this year. Indeed, ticks are on the rise in the Eastern Townships, and the diseases they transmit can have major consequences for the health of our citizens.
A permit is required for open burning. Permits are available from Mondays to Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Fridays from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Please note that the date of publication stated on the public notice refers to the date on which the notice is posted on the municipal bulletin boards in accordance with the law, and not to the date on which it is posted on this website.
