Good luck to District 2 resident Josiane Ouaknine, who is retiring as a Côte Saint-Luc municipal employee after 34 years of dedicated service.
"I''ve known Josiane for as long as I've been with the city," commented Acting Mayor Dida Berku. "She is very much a part of the fabric of the place and no matter where she worked she made that department more sunny and bright. Her smile and good nature were trademarks. We will miss her and we know the residents will too."
Josiane has worked in many departments: Finance, Archives, Urban Planning, EMS, Public Safety, Purchasing, The Aquatic and Community Centre and for the office of then Mayor and Council. In the latter capacity she was most helpful to me. Over the last few years she has been the person to greet members of the public at City Hall, directing them to the right office as well as answering questions by phone.
I am happy to be her city councillor.
Good luck Josiane!
