PRESS RELEASE BY THE MINISTRY FOR THE NATIONAL HERITAGE, THE ARTS AND LOCAL GOVERNMENT

​​​Following a coordinated task by the Department of Local Government within the Ministry for the National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government and MITA, a digital platform has been introduced and thus as of today, the local government meetings can be held online. Through this platform, the local governments will be able to carry out their meetings without the need for direct contact between councillors.


Minister José Herrera reiterated that the ministry, together with the Department for Local Government, is holding continuous discussions and is working closely with the local councils and the Local Councils’ Association. The introduction of the digital platform is one of a series of measures and actions which are being implemented in order to safeguard the health of workers, councillors and the general public.

The ministry would like to show its gratitude to the Local Councils’ Association, mayors, councillors, the executive secretaries and their association, as well as all employees for their collaboration and the continuous work they are carrying out for the benefit of the Maltese and Gozitan communities.
