So far only 23 members were elected to the Jaffna Municipality. However in accordance with the new Election method, 45 members, nearly double the former amount have been selected.
The JMC conference hall remained till recently adequate for conducting the sitting with 23 Members. As the number of MMCs have increased, action is being taken to extend the hall to suit the new numbers.
The hall has been extended making the rooms allocated for the Mayor and his Deputy, small. So far the MMC s were not provided with individual tables and mikes. Now individual Tables and mikes have been provided like the PC.
These activities have been undertaken as per the instructions of NP Commissioner of Local Government.
With council’s money and with funds through STP project funds.
