New Salisbury Community Village Council Steering Committee say they are just 100 names and signatures away from making their first ever Village Council a reality
Chairman of the Salisbury Steering committee, black history activist, member of the Dominica Public Library association and member of the Dominica reparations committee, Franklyn Georges, is calling on the members of the Salisbury constituency to help make their village council a reality.
He says after having a few meetings with the local government in evaluating what were the necessary steps in creating a village council, the sensitization process began along with other aspects of public education.
One of the main criteria needed to complete the process is the receiving 400 signatures from the community. Presently they are about 80% complete with only 100 more signatures missing to make the Village council a reality.
Mr. Georges says once they have received these signatures, it is the intention of the council to inform the local government then have a public meeting where the general public of the Salisbury area can witness the handing over of the forms and get a chance to ask questions they need answered face to face from the representatives themselves.
This he says will lead to proper transparency and honesty amongst the council and the people it is intended to represent.
He is looking to see a strictly autonomous village council, one that is free from party politics, band one that has a fair and balanced orientation.
