Karavaki highlighted that one of the submissions that was raised at their meeting which has been taken on board is the liqour drinking in the villages.
Another submission is the approval from the Health Ministry on how the houses in the villages are constructed which should be strong enough when cyclone strikes.

Meanwhile the Proposed Village By-laws are expected to feature prominently in the two day Cakaudrove provincial council meeting.
