Handbook for Councillors of Municipalities and Neighborhood Democratic Councils – Volume 1

This Document has been amended and republished on July 25 2017

This document was prepared by the Ministry of Communities with assistance from the Caribbean Local Economic Development Project (CARILED) with financial support of The Government of Canada.

This handbook contains critical information and you (councillors and administrative staff) are urged to read it and make use of it; it will assist you in making your work more effective. Whether you are a constituency councillor or a PR councillor, I urge you to take ownership of your area, which is the role the Constitution provides for you. In this quest you will find an ally in me, the Ministry of Communities and the Government of Guyana.
