137.2. As soon as practicable after the adoption of a by-law amending or replacing the zoning, subdivision or building by-law of the municipality, after the adoption by the council of the municipality of the by-law provided for in section 116, of a by-law respecting comprehensive development programs, a by-law respecting site planning and architectural integration programs or a by-law respecting municipal works agreements, or after the adoption of a by-law amending or replacing any of the last four by-laws, the clerk or the secretary-treasurer of the municipality shall transmit a certified copy of the by-law and of the resolution by which it is adopted to the regional county municipality whose territory includes that of the municipality.
However, if the by-law requires the approval of the qualified voters, the documents mentioned in the first paragraph shall be transmitted, as soon as practicable, either after the approval or, at the option of the council, after the adoption of the by-law; the second case applies mandatorily where, under the third paragraph of section 136.0.1, the beginning of the periods provided for in sections 535 and 568 of the Act respecting elections and referendums in municipalities (chapter E-2.2) is delayed. In the latter case, the clerk or the secretary-treasurer shall, when transmitting the documents, notify the regional county municipality that the by-law requires the approval of the qualified voters.
The clerk or secretary-treasurer shall also, as soon as practicable after the date on which the by-law is deemed to have been so approved, transmit a notice specifying that date to the regional county municipality.
