114.11. If the mayor or a designated councillor exercised the power provided for in section 114.4 before the budget of the municipality was adopted, the budget must contain an appropriation to cover the expenditures relating to office staff and determined according to the standards, scales and other conditions set under section 114.6. The same applies to the budget of a borough of Ville de Montréal if the borough mayor exercised that power before the budget was adopted.
However, the appropriation may not exceed the amount determined by the Minister or the amount that corresponds to the percentage, determined by the Minister, of the total of the other appropriations for operating expenses provided for in the budget. If the Minister determines an amount and a percentage with regard to the same budget, the higher amount constitutes the applicable maximum.
If the budget of the municipality provides for appropriations for operating expenses related to a system of production, transmission or distribution of electric power, only 50% of the appropriations must be considered when determining the total referred to in the second paragraph.
The Minister may establish classes of municipalities and boroughs and determine a different amount or percentage for each one.
