The general public on Saba is invited to come out and discuss the new draft General Local Ordinance during two town hall meetings, writes The Daily Herald.
The first meeting will be held Tuesday, March 8, at the Fire Station in The Bottom, and the meeting of Wednesday, March 9, is to be held at Eugenius Johnson Centre in Windwardside. Both meetings begin at 6:00pm.
The main purpose of the General Local Ordinance is to regulate and safeguard the island’s “public order and safety, public repose (noise reduction – Ed.) and public health.”
The current General Local Ordinance dates from 1995 and is still in effect, as it was one of the ordinances carried over by the Island Council after 10/10/10. This new draft was prepared because the Island Government feels that it is important that legislation is practical, up to date and enforceable.
Because the Ordinance directly impacts the community, the Island Government is strongly urging residents to come out and give their feedback, Saba Government Information Service (SGIS) stated.
The draft General Local Ordinance can be read in English and Dutch on the homepage of the Public Entity’s website: www.sabagov.nl.
