In this article, the Mayor of Black River, Jeremy Palmer, expresses disappointment with regards to how long the local government reform process is taking to effect planned programmes. His plans for Black River are outlined. One such plan includes the establishment of a local parish museum to feature the local history and culture of the parish. Plans for the funding of this initiative have been identified.
Palmer said the council is working assiduously to establish a museum in the town of Black River next year.
" What we want to do is to set up a history museum which will have much of the culture and all of those things that are pertinent to the parish," he explained. "We have already identified a building and we have done a project document which has been submitted to TPDCo (Tourism Product Development Company) who are working with us to establish it," he added.
