The year 2016 is heading straight toward its end and everyone is anticipating the celebrations. It has again been a year full of joy and sadness in this country and world. What are we looking for in 2017? 2017 marks the year in which PM Marshall will again run for the job. We will look forward to the new plans of high speed transit the DOT will present in May. We at PNB are really excited about the renovation of our headquarters being finished. In case you and your family will want to enjoy the festivities down at the oceanside in Pasaliapolis please note that the PPD has announced the ban of fireworks near the New Zoological Garden. This is to improve the health of its animals and we will all understand that. Furthermore don’t be surprised to see police blocking downtown streets with trucks and armored vehicles. This is to ensure upmost safety. Please be prepared to let police search your bags for any forbidden items like firecrackers or glass bottles. The Bank of Pasalia has announced to keep its observation deck open this year. The deck was closed last year after a fatal incident involving two men happened. The fireworks will begin at midnight and are expected to last about 30 minutes. CRT will run at increased frequency and offer free shuttles buses from stations into neighborhoods to disencourage drunk driving. Police will conduct breathalyzer tests until noon of Jan 1. PNB will broadcast the celebrations from major cities like Latina, Quentinsburgh, St. Richards and many more. PNB will be here for you again on Jan 2 and Have a happy and safe 2017!
