Meeting with DPRD

Today I and my boss have meeting with Dewan Perwakilan Rakyat Daerah (DPRD) or Regional Representatives Council from Cilacap Regency, Central Java Province. They are come with Cilacap Regent. Totally they are 22 persons. I worked in Department of Public Work that concentrated in highway and bridge. The council asked about 2010 program and their proposal about order to bridge because they have low budget for infrastructure field. But Department can fully help them but we also have limited budget especially for upper bridge frame. Proposal for upper bridge frame for all over Indonesia reached 30,000 meter meanwhile supply or ready stock only 1,000 m. We must selective to choice regency that worth to accept aid. Cilacap regency is the largest regency in Central Java (225,360.840 Ha), the capital has the same name Cilacap. For 2010 program, Central Budget only for National highway and for Regency highway not included. For Regency or local highway they must used their own budget. If they think Regency or local highway is important for National traffic, they can submit proposal to our Department. That is mechanism, but this meeting also for establish intimacy between Central government and local government. This meeting takes two hours.
