45. Where the Government requests the Commission to make an investigation in accordance with the second paragraph of subsection 1 of section 22, the Government may place, from the date it determines, the municipality affected by the request under the control of the Commission.
The Commission shall, where that is the case, publish, in the Gazette officielle du Québec, a notice stating that the municipality has been placed under the control of the Commission and the effective date thereof.
Such placement under the control of the Commission shall cease on the expiry of 30 days following the submission of the Commission’s report to the Government, unless it decides to maintain it for such time as it determines; it may, as required, curtail or extend such time.
The Government, within 30 days of receipt of the report or, as the case may be, at the same time as it takes a decision pursuant to the third paragraph, may order, for the time it determines after the municipality ceases to be under the control of the Commission, that certain provisions of Division VIII shall continue to apply to the municipality or that the Commission shall have the power to disallow any decision of the council in accordance with the second paragraph of section 57. The Government may curtail or extend such time or otherwise modify its decision.
The Commission shall publish a notice in the Gazette officielle du Québec of the fact that the municipality ceases to be placed under its control and of any decision of the Government taken pursuant to the fourth paragraph.
