Department of Palmes nearly incorporated into Articles Law

Mgr. Alphonse presided over mass celebrating Petit Goave's patron saint's feast day, Our Lady of the Assumption. In attendance were clergymen, politicians, Lower Chamber members, President Thimoleon, and Petit Goâve Mayor Jules.


Alphonse said the occasion was a time to determine how to move forward in the transformation process of building ". . . a more just and harmonious society." With that sentiment resonating in the hearts and minds of the attendees, all repaired to the Fort Royal Hotel for more pronouncements and presentations.

At the reception Jules gave thanks to the Haitian government for funding several construction projects in Petit Goâve, particularly for its poorer denizens. She pointed especially to the Petit Goâve port, a generator of a steady stream of income.

Petit Goâve's engineer gave a slide show of projects ready for implementation, among them Lycee Roseline Vaval of Vialet, its cornerstone installed recently. Projects still on the boards but nearly shovel-ready include road construction for sections of Palmes, and an irrigation project for Plaine's second section is also planned.

Non-government agency, German Argo Action (GAA), had its delegate talk about work plans for downtown Petit Goâve and outlying neighborhoods that have several projects in the works. GAA anticipates completion of them any day.

Thimoleon thanked all his supporters, who helped get the building of the Department of Palmes underway. It remains for the Lower Chamber to adopt the Articles of Incorporation for DOP and send it to the Upper Chamber for passage.
