Eight inaugurated at the 17th Inaugural Meeting of the Castle Bruce Village Council
Farmers in the Castle Bruce community are being advised to continue planting their crops as the Castle Bruce Village Council continue efforts to improve their local market for sale of agricultural produce.
The advice came from the newly elected chair person of the Castle Bruce Village Council, Mrs Angelica Gasper, during her address at the council’s seventeenth inaugural meeting on Monday.
Mrs Gasper said that the council is currently in discussions to construct a Market Complex which will include stalls for vendors in the community who wish to sell their produce.
Mrs Gasper also commended the government of Dominica for erecting the New Health Facility in Castle Bruce, a project she believes has had a positive impact on the lives of residents in the area.
A challenge was sent out to the relevant authorities to facilitate closer proximity for health officials who are assigned to the Facility, to compliment a quicker response from the health team.
Parliamentary Representative for the Castle Bruce Constituency, Honorable Johnson Drigo pledged the government’s support in assisting the council to carry out its mandate.
He says the government is pleased to have provided assistance to over thirty homes in the community, to the tune of $300,000.
Minister for Social Services, Community Development and Gender Affairs, Honorable Gloria Shillingford called on the new council to take advantage of the services which will be made available to the council, through the Local Government Department.
The elected councilors are Angelica Gasper, Dwain Austelle Lockhart, Damas Challenger, Vitus St Louis who was absent and Kurt Cadette.
The nominated councilors are Mc Donald Bannis, Augustus Prevost and Margalie Jno Baptiste.
