Minister of Local Government Desmond McKenzie, is pledging to meet with Mayors of the Municipal Corporations, every month, and with Councillors every quarter. He also committed to meet with ALGA twice every month. The commitment came while he was addressing Councillors in Montego Bay recently.
The Minister also encourage Councillors to be visible in their Divisions. He told Councillors that it is much better to be visible and have persons curse them rather than not been with the people.
He also made clear to Councillors that the rules must be followed. He said that Councillors must make sure that the image of the Municipalities are improved. The Minister also told the assembled Councillors that the monthly meeting of the Councils should be used to address issues that are pressing rather than matters that should be dealt with at a committee level.
