In the meeting which was held in the President's Office, the councillors voiced concerns raised by island residents.

Highlighting the most urgent needs to be given the highest priority, the councillors requested the expansion of Meedhoo harbour, relocation of the powerhouse, and allocating land for housing and other infrastructural projects.
