LOCAL GOVERNMENT REFORM: A RESPONSE TO SOCIETAL CHANGES IN JAMAICA

By Peter W Jones

Abstract

Civil society has been calling for improvement in Local Government for sometime now, primarily because of the ineffectiveness of the KSAC and Parish Councils island-wide to provide services such as, roads repair and public lighting, amongst others. Due to a lack of voter participation, however, a government of alleged corruption remains in power. This level of corruption and the continued ineffectiveness of the local government system has increased the need for reform. This Reference Guide which we hope will provoke discussion on the burning issue of Local Government Reform and hence the LGRP. The intention of this paper is not to tell the Government or Her Majesty’s loyal opposition how to formulate policy but rather to guide the policy discussion. This document should be used as a guide to policy formulation and is not intended as a manifesto or similar type document for any political constituency or political campaign.Local Government Reform,Jamaica,Government of Jamaica,Jamaica Local government
