The Joint Select Committee of Parliament considering the proposal to make the Portmore City Municipality in St Catherine Jamaica’s 15th parish, is to host two virtual town hall meetings on July 22 and July 29.
The meetings, which are to be held in partnership with the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, are to facilitate the input of the residents of Portmore and other stakeholders.
The meetings are to be held using the Zoom platform, and persons wishing to participate are required to register on Parliament’s website, www.japarliament.gov.jm
Members of the public will also be able follow the event on PBC Jamaica or Jamaica Information Service YouTube and Facebook pages, and make their comments using the chat functions on those pages.
The committee previously received submissions from public and private sector stakeholders. However, the town hall consultations are geared at allowing members of the public additional access to the committee.
