From today, the municipality of Woluwe-Saint-Pierre will implement bicycle couriers three times a week to receive and deliver the official mail of the municipality. The couriers will deliver important administrative documents necessary for the proper functioning of a municipality such as planning permissions, budget documents, documents addressed to municipal councilors etc.
The socially responsible eco-cooperative Molenbike will take care of the business. A trial period of three months is planned, in order to ensure that the couriers will be able to deliver all the official documents in time.
So far, all the official documents were deposited by car. Thus, the municipality has taken this measure in order to reduce the impact on air quality and mobility in Brussels.
