137.8. Where the council of the municipality fails to adopt, within the time prescribed in section 58 or 59 or under section 137.6, as the case may be, a concordance by-law to take into account the amendment or revision of the plan, the council of the regional county municipality may adopt it in its place.
Sections 124 to 137.6 do not apply in respect of the by-law adopted by the council of the regional county municipality under the first paragraph. The by-law is considered to be a by-law adopted by the council of the municipality and approved by the council of the regional county municipality. As soon as practicable after the adoption of the by-law, the secretary-treasurer shall issue a certificate of conformity in respect of it.
As soon as practicable after the adoption of the by-law and the issue of the certificate, the secretary-treasurer shall transmit a certified copy of the by-law, of the resolution by which it is adopted and of the certificate to the municipality and, for registration purposes, to the Commission. The copy of the by-law transmitted to the municipality shall stand in lieu of the original for the issue by the municipality of certified copies of the by-law.
The expenses incurred by the regional county municipality to act in the place of the municipality shall be reimbursed to it by the municipality.
The first four paragraphs also apply where the council of a municipality fails to adopt, within the period prescribed in section 102 or within the period prescribed pursuant to section 40, as the case may be, a by-law whose object is the amendment of a by-law referred to in the second paragraph of section 102 to bring the latter into conformity with the objectives of the development plan and with the provisions of the complementary document.
