“With respect to the traffic congestion, preliminary discussions have been held with the NWA (National Works Agency),” the mayor told Western Focus in an interview last week. “We want to look at the delivery hours for the town, and I think it was the deputy (mayor) that indicated that it should have been between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays; and on Fridays – no deliveries.”

“In looking forward, too, I think with the exception of those establishments with ample parking, we should put either paid parking along Main Street, or no parking at all. And I think I am opting for the latter – no parking along that street. I want to see the day when that street is blocked off from vehicular traffic. So it is just a business street,” he added.
