• From René Caderius van Veen on When may you light off fireworks?

    This is a decision of the local government. The animal Foundation has the right to make official objections!
    In the Netherlands fireworks may only be fired in the permitted areas exclusively from 31 December 6 pm to 1 January 2 am?
    This is based on the national Fireworks Decree.
    Article 2.3.6 Fireworks Decree stipulates that it is forbidden to light consumer fireworks at a different time than between 31 December 6 pm and 1 January 2 am of the following year. Lighting the fireworks is then allowed, because the use of fireworks is linked to the festivities around the turn of the year.
    Also on Bonaire the firework regulation is in accordance with Dutch legislation

  • From Derrick Simmons on Island Council reluctantly approves skeletal budget 2020-2023

    Dear Saba-News.
    1. Where and when were the draft budget and advice from the CFT relating to this budget publicized (or made available) to the public (See Article 17 sub 5 of the FinBes with the stress on “voor eenieder ter inzage en zijn algemeen verkrijgbaar”?
    2. Taking Article 18 sub 1 of the same FinBes into account, was the deliberation of the budget by the Island Council take place, at least, two weeks after these documents have been publicized (or made available)?
    3. Wouldn’t the Executive Council of Saba taking the current information into account, after the deliberation and the publication of relevant documentation of a time period of one month, be in conflict with the “lawfully stated deadline of November 15”?
    4. Is it possible to avoid a deficit by using up your liquidity (reserves) or don’t you need permission to do so, because isn’t it the general policy that deficits be eliminated by cutting the expenses or increasing revenues?

  • From Bill Lionheart on Coast Guard saves man who had been drifting four days at sea near Saba

    Probably he ran out of diesel fuel not gasoline. Such a yacht would not have a gas/petrol engine.

    Was it unusually calm to have no wind for 3 days?

    Glad he is safe!

    Back in the day it was called the “Solidarity Funds”, now it is called the “incidental funds”? Same begging under a different name !!
