This May, Dominica observes the thirty third anniversary of local government month under the theme Strengthening Community Resilience through Local Government.
Local Government Commissioner Glenroy Toussaint says a number of activities will be held in observance of the month including a national climate resilience consultation to discuss building resilience at the community level.
Another activity hosted by the local government division is ‘Koudmen day’ which also falls under the DOMFESTA calendar of activities.
Toussaint calls on the general public to take time to get involved on Koudmen day and rekindle the koudmen spirit.
To bring the month to a close the division intends to make a donation to the Grotto Home for the Homeless.
