Deschamps says members decided to disband because of the public perception of the party in the wake of damning testimony before the province's corruption inquiry.
The party was hit with a series of defections last November when Tremblay resigned as mayor.
Deschamps says after paying off their debts, party members will return remaining funds to the city.
