The National Office of Disaster Services (NODS) has given ample opportunities for Barbuda Council members to obtain information on the operations in Barbuda following Hurricane Irma.
Meetings are held at the NODS office where information is shared freely on what is happening on the sister-isle and council members are free to attend.
Some council members have attended the meetings while some have not.
Director of NODS Philmore Mullin says NODS does not hide any information from councilors and the office does not wish to be drawn into any squabble between both sections of the Barbuda Council. Council matters are to be dealt with by the council while NODS will confine its information to emergency matters.
