Fate of the Wee Wee Trucks to be Decided Soon

The Trinidad Express is reporting today that a decision coming from a meeting between band leaders and the Port of Spain City Corporation in regards to the "Wee Wee Truck" ban should be reached by weekend:

Bandleaders and officials of the Port of Spain City Corporation are to meet this weekend to continue discussions on the fate of the ’wee wee trucks’ which the corporation is proposing to ban because of health concerns.


Port of Spain Mayor Murchison Brown said yesterday that a decision could come by the meeting’s end............ 

Brown said the Public Health Department should not have waited until October ’at the last minute’ to break the news to the bandleaders who would have had already offered the portable toilet service to masqueraders as part of their all-inclusive packages for Carnival.


Mayor Brown said that he was ’left out of the loop’when the Public Health Department, which falls under the City Corporation, had its discussions on the matter and arrived at its decision.


’The bandleaders should have been given due notice about this plan and I tend to agree with them on that. I understand that they (Public Health) were having discussions on these plans since about June and this is something that they should have told the bandleaders months in advance’.

For the full article click HERE. Somehow the Mayor's reported position on the issue, which is that band leaders were not given due notice gives me hope that the ban may not be implemented for Carnival 2010.
Patiently awaiting the outcome of these meetings!
