Road Works Update

This from Island People on the inaugural session of the discussion forum, first topic, wee wee trucks:



Hey IPeeps

Road Works got off to a running start last Friday with discussions about the Wee Wee truck issue for Carnival 2K10. Approximately 70 persons came out to the ISLANDpeople Mas Camp to ear their concerns on the matter at hand. The representatives from the Ministry of Health and the National Carnival Bands Association came out to educate and to answer our many questions on the issue. Some of the key points they revealed were:

1)The wee wee trucks are illegal because the Licensing Authority only approves music trucks to accompany the band. (i.e. all the other trucks are illegal too: food, cool down, rest truck, floats, etc)

2)The Ministry personnel said that complaints were received that some truck were not well maintained and left a stench that upset the masqueraders of the other bands behind it, as well as the food vendors at the roadside and spectators.

3)A key note is that the law prohibits person from ascending and descending a moving vehicle which is what takes place with a wee wee truck.

4)In place of wee wee trucks they propose 18 locations along the route For Masqueraders ONLY, with a minimum of 18 bathrooms for both males and females. There will also be 24 hr security and well as maintenance teams provided at these facilities.

5)It was revealed that ONLY the Minister of Culture can sanction the additional trucks on the road which will then be given authorization from the Licensing Authority after careful inspection.

Discussion continued about the truck and a few determined souls raised their concerns about the ‘Stage’ and its return.

Please note due to Team members’ Commitment to the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) Youth Forum, Road works will continue next Friday 27th November. Please remember that you can send your questions on past topics as well the coming topics (as they are revealed) to the ISLANDpeople Mas Facebook Page.

ISLANDpeople Mas..... the fun has just begun
