Parish council buildings to be assessed


December 16, 2016

The Ministry of Local Government and Community Development will be carrying out an assessment of parish council buildings to identify those in need of repairs.

Portfolio minister, Desmond McKenzie, cited the St Thomas Parish Council building as among the facilities that require critical attention.

"I am making a commitment to you that in the next financial year, we are going to try and make provisions to start something for you," he said.

Work is far advanced on a new building for the Westmoreland Parish Council, which he said should be completed in February 2017.

McKenzie indicated that he would be meeting with all mayors on a monthly basis, quarterly with councillors, and twice every month with the Association of Local Government Authorities.
