The City of Lachute has announced that the town’s World War One monument will be restored and rust-proofed.

The monument was created to commemorate the soldiers from Argenteuil and Lachute who fought in World War One. Located adjacent to the Lachute Public Library, the monument has deteriorated and rusted over time. But the city announced last week that the conservation and restoration will take place, overseen by DL Héritage.

The restoration work will take place between September 4 and September 11 and is estimated to cost $25,035.
