The Rural Municipality of Montcalm is trying to improve pedestrian safety in St. Jean.
Reeve Roger Vermette says they are installing eleven new streetlights at the North end of the community.
He says the number of people walking on the dark street has reached the point where it is now dangerous.
The R.M. is also in the midst of planning the construction of eight to twelve low cost rental units in St. Jean.
Vermette says demand for the homes is strong.
He explains their waiting list is already full.
