22. No member of the council of a municipality may receive an annual expense allowance greater than an amount adjusted upwardly, where applicable, for each fiscal year, in accordance with the second and fourth paragraphs of section 5. However, the adjustment is not limited to an increase of 6 %. Where the result of the adjustment is a number that includes a decimal fraction, the fraction is disregarded.
Where a member is entitled to receive an expense allowance from a mandatary body of the municipality or a supramunicipal body, whether the allowance is referred to as such or by any other name, the first paragraph applies to the aggregate of the allowances which the member is entitled to receive from the municipality and from such a body.
Every year, the Minister of Municipal Affairs shall publish in the Gazette officielle du Québec a notice setting forth the maximum amount of the expense allowance for the fiscal year considered.
