The Mayor of
indeed a great pleasure and privilege for me to address you as the newly
elected Mayor of the town of Vacoas/Phoenix.
would be one of continuity to carry on with the good work which started two
years back and my priorities will be as follows:

Vacoas/Phoenix, I will come up with the construction of synthetic football
pitches, open gyms, children’s playgrounds and social halls and our main
development project will be the construction of a modern swimming pool in the
town, a project long overdue.
As regards the Welfare of the citizens, I will
ensure all the infrastructure and facilities are fully operational.
In the very crucial field of public health, the
scavenging service needs to be modernized and made more dynamic. Every day, 130
tons of wastes are collected and evacuated. It is high time to work towards a solution

the collaboration of the Ministry of the Environment and the Central
Government. A pilot site will be identified for the launching of the project.
Citizens will also have to be sensitized to
collaborate fully to pave the way towards success to ensure that our coming
generations inherits a healthy environment.
In this connection, the citizens will be motivated
and given facilities to actively participate in clean-up campaigns.
Schools, colleges, youth clubs and NGO’s amongst
others will be invited to participate in a massive clean up Campaign of the
Mayor Town of
