2017-06-30 General policy
General Statement - President Daniel GIBBES at the 29 CT June 2017

Ladies and gentlemen, Vice-Presidents,
Ladies and gentlemen, the territorial advisers,
Ladies and gentlemen,

It is once again a dense agenda that awaits the elected as we are this morning. 11 points are indeed on the agenda of our Assembly: provisions relating to our mixed economy company in particular, but also the vote of the administrative account 2016 or that of the supplementary budget for 2017. So important deliberations, and for some politicians, dare the word!

Concerning the budget, my reading of the local press a few days ago, allowed me to discover that my "opposition" within this Territorial Council meant to nibble on the vote of the BP last April. This one has passed the control of legality, so I will not waste our time - it is precious - by discussing useless points of law. Nevertheless, I take this opportunity to form a wish for a constructive opposition in the future, which will formulate real proposals for our territory, for the benefit of its population, rather than those sterile ebullitions which would "make the buzz" No debate.
Let ...


I committed myself to the 15 last June and I would like to take this opportunity to take stock of the 3 first months of this new mandate and the work in progress.

On the administrative side, first, I wanted to make, with my teams and my elected representatives, the turn of all services. As I told you at the last Territorial Council, I discovered a government that is out of breath and that I absolutely want to upgrade and modernize for two main reasons: the well-being and therefore the efficiency of our civil servants at work. On the one hand, and the legal security of our Community on the other.

To this end, and taking advantage of retirements, two key positions will shortly be filled, that of Director General of Services and that of Human Resources Director. I repeat: it is inconceivable that the Collectivity should continue to function as a commune for a longer period, unrelated to the competencies assigned to it.

We will therefore restructure the services and perfect our administration: the organizational audit, HR and the processes that Team Gibbes announced in its electoral program is preparing. And, second good news: thanks to our partnership with the AFD, with which we are currently discussing, this audit will not cost the community a penny.

I am already making this announcement: we will draw up from the start of the school year an effective "administration" project, based on our political program, which will perfectly clarify the objectives and missions of the staff.

In addition, and because we need to prepare for the future, I would like to see an internal support and sharing mechanism in place within our administration: for example, Will be joined by an agent who will be trained to be able tomorrow, to take up duties of responsibilities.


Sound management is also an effective tax policy. On this subject too, our majority has made strong commitments, which it intends to respect. I therefore announce that we have published a contract just a week ago for the launch of our tax audit, which will start in October. It will not only be a matter of auditing the existing one, of course, but also the drafting of a new code. Our slogans remain unchanged: we want to aim for a simple, coherent, fair and efficient taxation in its collection.
In our program as well, we announced the development of a multi-year investment program: know that on this issue, thanks to a partnership with AFD, the Community will not pay a penny to set up this necessary PPI .

Finally, as you know, we are launching an indemnity claim of 50 million euros, on all uncompensated social benefits to the Collectivité. 50 millions of euros, it is about the amount of the debt of Saint-Martin to the CAF of Guadeloupe. We will go to the end of this procedure, which must allow our Collectivity to no longer function with this sword of Damocles above the head, budget after budget.

Our majority has placed economic development at the heart of its priorities. I am announcing that we are launching the work for the long-term tourism strategy, 2017-2027. I even meet the socio-professionals today, but I also want to seek advice from neighborhoods and the CESC. I will present our tourism strategy very officially at the beginning of the school year, before the Territorial Council.

At the same time, and in order to diversify our economy, we are also launching the work of our future economic development plan. Moreover, for the primary economy, the future Local Action Group for the agriculture of Saint-Martin is given 3 million euros of EAFRD funds up to 2020.

Moreover, our majority is committed to working on the introduction of new social clauses in public procurement. In particular, to ensure that companies responding to these contracts, guarantee the hiring of a certain percentage of Saint-Martinois long-term unemployed or in insertion for example. Please note that we are currently working on the legal arrangement of these clauses and on the search for partnerships.


I conclude my remarks by tackling subjects related to the living environment of Saint-Martin. A word about town planning: you know, at first I want us to keep our POS. Nevertheless, we will review it - the work begins in the days to come - because there are inconsistencies in the regulations. These changes will be implemented as early as December.

In a second step, as we committed ourselves, we will adopt a new regulatory document, which will allow us to work in the broadest possible consultation and with the greatest possible pedagogy, in order to avoid the pitfalls of the PLU proposed by the Previous majority.

Still on town planning, regarding the 50 not geometric, our services still have in their drawers some 300 files past due. This situation can not endure: I will therefore deploy human resources, to speed up the regularization procedures with greater legal certainty.

A word on the embellishment of our districts: you have seen, the Supplementary Budget that is submitted to your examination and your vote today, dedicates 300 000 euros extra compared to the BP last April to bloom and To the beautification of our neighborhoods.

At the same time, our majority undertook to make Saint-Martin cleaner and more pleasant in the first months of its mandate: I know that this concern is shared by a great many of our fellow citizens, so I would like to conclude my statement By launching a great invitation to those who want to see Saint-Martin in its best light, to participate in the good mood, to our operations of cleaning the various quarters of the island. These operations start this weekend: make it a real success!

Thank you.
