Ribbon cutting ceremony commemorating the completion of the new Peleliu State Building.

The people of Peleliu State and their government witnessed the opening of $1.6 million dollar multi-purpose State office this week. The ceremony also marked the completion of water distribution system to Camp Beck, ground breaking of new children’s park and Community Health Providers Housing facility.
Governor of Peleliu Temmy Shmull expressed the gratitude and appreciation of the people of Peleliu to the government of the Republic of China-Taiwan through their Ambassador Wallace Chow for making the project a reality echoing President Remengesau’s remarks.
Speaker Eufrasia Remeliik of Peleliu Legislature expressed that the construction of the new State building was number one among the many priorities the legislature had. “The safety and well-being of the people of Peleliu was the main reason we made this a priority. In case of typhoon, we don’t want to see our people, especially our elderly climbing steep rocks into bat-infested caves for protection. These are unsafe and dangerous which is why we prioritized this state building as number one on our priority list,” stated Speaker Remeliik.
The large facility houses the Office of Governor, State Legislature, and other public services including PNCC and PPUC.
Governor Shmull also reported that one of the offices will house the new Peleliu FM station which will be broadcasting news for Peleliu. Twelve thousand ($12,000) dollars was donated by Taiwan toward equipping the new FM station.
