Reaction of the President to the election of Donald Trump

"By winning the US presidential election, Donald Trump became the president of all Americans. It is a democratic choice. I congratulate the new president on his victory, and I wish him good luck in his new role.

Because of its geographical position, Saint-Martin has always had privileged relations with America. Historically, Saint-Martin has maintained cultural and family ties with the United States, many families are settled there, and part of our youth is studying there. We also have strong tourism links with this country, and we wish to see these cordial and fraternal relations continue. The new president also has a connection with Saint-Martin, because he owns property and must appreciate the many assets of our territory. "


President of the Territorial Council of Saint-Martin

Closure of Kennedy Street on the night of 08 at 09 November

Works on the water network

The Saint-Martin Water and Sanitation Establishment informs the public of the closure of Kennedy Street in downtown Marigot on Tuesday 08 November 2016 from 19 hours. The reopening of Kennedy Street will be effective on Wednesday 09 November 2016 at 6 hours of the morning.
The EEASM is obliged to close this section, because the work to be carried out is delicate. Indeed, unlisted cables have been discovered, in particular a high voltage line. It was therefore decided to finalize the installation of new pipes at night to make as soon as possible.
The portion of road located between the Tourist Office and the branch of the street of General de Gaulle is currently closed and will reopen on Thursday 10 November. The deviation will be done by the Sea Front.

The laying of pipelines and fiber optics on rue de la Liberté is now complete. The workers began to concretize the street, beginning with the stretch between Rue de la République and Rue Félix Eboué. In order to avoid deterioration of the infrastructure, this portion of the street will be reopened once the final coating (asphalt) is laid.

Aware of the inconvenience caused to traders and local residents, the EEASM is making every effort to keep its calendar and reopen road traffic, as planned on 30 November 2016.

Reminder: This work to rehabilitate the water and sanitation network was a necessity. Never taken into account so far, the lack of maintenance of the networks has made the pipes dilapidated leading to numerous leaks and a considerable loss of drinking water (close to 70%). Four months of work, carried out in the low tourist season, were planned to rehabilitate these networks once and for all, and to offer the population suitable facilities.
