Wednesday 29 June 2011 – The community of Micoud has recently elected Mr. Pricillius Simeon as Chairperson of the Micoud Village Council. The council comprises of nine members, inclusive of Mr. Simeon.


The Council is established to address concerns which have a direct impact on the development of the community of Micoud. So far, a number of committees have been formed. 


“We have organized ourselves into committees based on the expertise we have on board on Council. And also in some cases we have brought in some professionals from within the community. We have set up committees in the areas of education and ICT, Youth and Sports, infrastructure, agriculture, the environment, community safety, finance and the elderly. These are the areas we deemed as priority areas.”


Mr. Simeon noted the political harmony that has been in existence in the Micoud community over the last 30 years. He says such communal spirit must also exist in all spheres of endeavor if residents of Micoud are to progress, as they position themselves to contribute to national development. 


“At the end of the day all we doing is about the constituency, the people and we think that they have ideas. They have ideas as to what they want done in their constituency, where they want the constituency to go. So what we expect of them is to attend council functions, attend meetings, come in to dialogue with us so at least their ideas could be heard as it relates to the development of the constituency.”



 The Council's term of office comes to an end on the 31st of January, 2012. Mr. Simeon urges members of his community to attend Council meetings and to take an active part in the decision making process of their community.
