Sint Maarten and Saint Martin Agree to Extend Curfew, Implement New Times

The Dutch and French governments met earlier today in a meeting focused on cross border cooperation. In attendance were Governor Eugene Holiday, Justice Minister Rafael Boasman, Tourism Minister Mellissa Arrindell Doncher, Prefet Anne Laubies and French side President Daniel Gibbs.

The decision has been made to change the curfew beginning immediately. The new times will be from 9 PM to 6 AM. The curfew will be in effect until October 2, which is one week from today.

Law enforcement will be strictly enforcing the curfew and they will be actively patrolling to ensure that all citizens are adhering to it. The curfew is in place to help clear the roads as cleanup efforts continue and to maintain public order and safety for businesses and residents.

I fell in love with the island of Saint Martin the first time I visited to celebrate my 40th birthday in May of 2009. Since then, I've spent most birthdays there, and have visited countless other times getting to know this wonderful place and the friendly locals that make it so special. I adore the culture, the people, the community, and the beauty of this stunning island. SXM Strong is a website that I started to support humanitarian relief efforts following Hurricane Irma. There was no plan, it just evolved as I witnessed the devastation that Irma caused the island and the huge need to communicate and disseminate information about what had happened and how people could help support this island and its people.
