Upgrading 11 villages to towns – What do you think?
If you read yesterday’s edition of l’express, you probably came across the article entitled ” Onze villages transformés en villes : le projet relancé?” (Picture above). As mentioned, the following villages might be upgraded to the status of “Town” soon if everything goes on smoothly on the administrative procedures;
- Bel Air Riviere Seche
- Bon accueil
- Centre de Flacq
- Chemin Grenier
- Moka / St Pierre
- Rivière du Rempart
- Rose Belle
- Terre Rouge
- and lastly, Triolet, of course!
Since quite long, inhabitants of the longest village of the island, Triolet and the surrounding villages have been benefiting from a large range of services, just to quote a few: police station, fire brigade station, post office, medical care center, banks and a market place. And speed cameras too!
Bref, Triolet (Village de la courtoisie, lol) as well as the other big villages have all the necessary infrastructure and facilities to help inhabitants of these villages and the surrounding ones.
Probably for this same reason, many people are totally for the idea that these villages promote to the status of towns. And as mentioned in the same article of l’express, the inhabitants of these new towns will then need to contribute to the municipal taxes, just as for the other existing towns. A new source of income which should bring a lot of money.
Personally, I won’t mind paying for a service if they really work as they should. What I mean is the prompt intervention of the authorities, regular collection of garbage, ensuring that lands do not become dumping areas and law enforcement on these kind of ‘dumping areas’, constant maintenance of road infrastructure and street lights, etc.
Do you live in one of these villages? What do you think? And what about others?
That’s all for today.
