Trinco Urban Council to be upgraded to Municipal status

[TamilNet, Tuesday, 25 December 2007, 16:21 GMT]
Ministry of Local Authorities and Provincial Council has appointed a three-member committee to report on the upgrading of the Trincomalee Urban Council to Municipal Council, sources in Trincomalee said. Mr.K.Godage, the chairman of the committee, is currently the Chairman of the East Provincial Public Service Commission.

The other two members are Mr.K.Kunanathan, Trincomalee Regional Assistant Commissioner of Local Government, and Mr.S.Sathiananathan, Trincomalee's Assistant Superintendent of Surveys. Mr.Kunanathan is also the secretary of the committee.

The Local Authorities and Provincial Councils Ministry has directed the committee to submit a report regarding the boundaries of the proposed council, the number of members, and the revenue expected to the council.

The committee has now decided to call for written representations from the people, public institutions and other related agencies to submit their views about the proposal to upgrade the Trinco UC to municipal status within twenty-one days from the date of official announcement. People are also given time to make verbal evidence before the committee, media reports said.

Local authority system was introduced in Trincomalee 123 years ago in the year 1884 with the establishment of an institution called " Local Board". It was later upgraded as Trincomalee Urban Council from 1.1.1940. Since then the urban council is administering Trincomalee town.
