WHEREAS local papers are closing down and electronic means, i.e. community websites, social media, etc. are the main avenues that people obtain information;

WHEREAS acts such as The Planning and Development Act require public notice to be given for certain actions and must be published in a paper circulating the municipality which is impossible to do when there is no local paper;

BE IT RESOLVED that SARM meets with the government to discuss acts, such as The Planning and Development Act, and advise municipalities how to advertise public notices so that municipalities are compliant until the acts are revised.
