24. The Corporation is authorized to make an agreement with the town of Bécancour respecting the application of the by-laws of the town and the exercise of its powers over any part of the territory described in the schedule that is owned by the Corporation; such an agreement shall apply also to any portion of such territory which the Corporation may alienate or acquire, from the time of such alienation or acquisition.
The town may also, under such agreement, delegate to the Corporation any part of its powers respecting the territory covered by the agreement.
Such an agreement, to be valid, must be submitted to the Minister of Municipal Affairs and to the Minister of Industry, Trade and Technology and be approved by the Government.
If the Corporation and the town have been unable to agree on the terms of such an agreement, the Commission municipale du Québec, upon application by the Corporation but after having heard the town of Bécancour, may suspend, for such time as it indicates, the application of any by-law or the exercise of any power of the town in any part of the said territory.
Every such agreement and every such decision of the Commission municipale du Québec shall be published in the Gazette officielle du Québec.
This section shall also apply to land which the Corporation owns, or upon which it has a real right, situated outside the territory described in the schedule but only to the extent required for the installation of public services intended to serve such territory.
