31.0.3. The council may, by by-law, provide that a resigning person entitled to a severance or transition allowance pursuant to a decision of the Commission municipale continues, despite section 31.0.2, to be entitled to the full amount of that allowance if it is established, to the Commission’s satisfaction and based on evidence it considers relevant, that the total annual remuneration to which the person was entitled as an elected municipal officer for the 24 months immediately preceding his resignation represents more than 20% of the person’s total annual income for that period. In such a case, the allowance to which the person is entitled may not, however, exceed the total remuneration to which he was entitled as an elected municipal officer during the portion of his term that remains before the next general municipal election. If applicable, the Commission determines the amount of the allowance to which the person is entitled.
