The Territorial Council met in plenary session this Monday, December 4, to deliberate on 9 points on the agenda.
The advisors began the session with the creation of the title of Chef Restaurateur de Saint-Martin which gives access to tax advantages for, in particular, the carrying out of work. The association of Chefs Restaurateurs is associated with this creation so that the title is in line with the realities of the catering sector, in harmony with the actions undertaken since 2022.

A constitutive charter governing the Neighborhood Councils was also adopted. For deliberation 5, the Territorial Council modified the table of permanent jobs in the Community. These adjustments concern the elimination of positions in redundant functions, the creation of new positions with regard to the new organization chart and the necessary adjustments. This modification aims to ensure complete consistency between positions, to clearly define supervisory and collaborative relationships, and to promote effective distribution of tasks and responsibilities. In deliberation 6, the members of the Territorial Council were called upon to adopt the strategy for the blue economy of Saint-Martin.
