Every year nine persons in the Choiseul/Saltibus Constituency are nominated by the District Rep to act as councillors of the Choiseul Village Council. These persons after they are nominated then recieve from the Governor General their letter of confirmation to the post of councillor.
The term of service is usually from February 1 in the year to January 31 the following year. The term February 1, 2009 to January 31, 2010 was chaired by Elmira Joseph with Mr. Henson Samuel as the vice.
Council usually meets every third Wednesday of every month to discuss and take decisions on matters affecting the constituency.
This year Council undertook a number of projects from footpaths to beautifications of the constituency.
The Village Clerk, Williana St. Rose, a hard and dedicated worker, is the executive director of Council and is charged with taking care of the daily routines, from paper work to managing of the Council staff.
