The Territorial Council voted the original 2016 budget

Meeting in plenary on Thursday 31 March 2016, the territorial council of Saint-Martin voted the original budget of 2016. This budget, amounting to a little more than 200M €, has been called an action budget by President Aline Hanson, who intends to continue the renovations undertaken in 2015 and implement neighborhood projects in the neighborhoods.

Despite a financial crisis, the community has made strong commitments to the people in 2015, stabilizing its tax system and carrying out various priority projects. The original budget of 2016 will also be exercised in a constrained context. These constraints stem mainly from a decrease in the State's allocations, an increase in the custody of the RSA Socle service, and the non-repayment by the State of the 4.5M € as compensation for the source of 2008's direct debits. and 2009 and the non-repayment by the state of the compensation on the 1.8M € games on the 2008 exercises to 2012.
Notwithstanding this significant shortfall, the community will pursue an ambitious policy in 2016, with concrete achievements for a global 34,2M investment. By streamlining its operating expenses, the Collectivité is able to generate cash from 15 M €, which will be used for investment projects.
The original 2016 budget was adopted by a majority vote (opposition TDG voted against, Councilor Charville abstained) with an investment section of 64801627, 93 € and a working section of 136870433,89 €, for An amount of 201672060 €.

In her introductory remarks, the President said that "for the nineteenth consecutive year, the result of the administrative account of the community is positive, with a clear intention to control operating expenditure". According to the original budget, the President indicated that the investment was mainly financed by the State / COM development contract, European funds and borrowing, insisting that the debt ratio is constant decreasing since 2 (2014 % In 62 - 2013% in 47).
This investment budget takes into account the city contract signed last December, and the resulting actions, as well as the grievances of the six neighborhood councils. The town contract provides for the construction of a landing dock for professional fishermen in the Orleans district, as part of the structuring of the fishing industry. He also plans to build a new MJC in Grand Case.
The rehabilitation of water and sewerage systems and the construction of sewage treatment plants are at the heart of the 2016 budget, as well as the improvement of public lighting and the renovation of sports facilities.
"We wanted to respond as a matter of priority to the day-to-day needs of the citizens, and to implement local actions. This 2016 budget is a budget of action, focusing on everyday life and living environment, with the multiplication of structural achievements for the youth, not forgetting the major challenges of the territory, which are the development of the road map and the rehabilitation of the networks Water and sanitation, "concluded the Chair.
