In the What's Going on with the Taitung County Government entry I discussed the recent doings of the Taitung County Government. In this entry I'd like to go a bit more local, and discuss the doings of even smaller administrative divisions within Taitung County. 在台東縣政府最近動向那篇文章已經討論過縣政府最近的動向. 這篇文章我想討論台東市, 鄉, 鎮公所的動向.
For those less familiar with Taiwan, the "big" cities are divided into districts (區), and the counties are divided into cities (市), townships (鄉), and municipalities (鎮). 對台灣比較不熟悉的讀者, 大城市 (高雄, 台南, 台中, 新竹, 基隆, 嘉義, 台北, 跟新北市) 以下有區的劃分, 縣 (城市外的地方)則由其他的市, 鄉, 鎮組成.
The websites for each of the Taitung city, township, and municipality offices are linked below. Many of these websites aren't updated very often. 以下有每個市, 鄉, 鎮公所的網站. 只是有的網站不常更新他們的資料.
I also scanned through the news for any interesting news items relevant to the township and municipalities below. There isn't a lot of Taitung-related news in the best of times, but I did my best to find relevant articles. 我也看最近的新聞, 希望找與這些城鎮相關的有趣的報導. 我盡力了, 只是台東的新聞不多.
1. Da Ren Township 達仁鄉公所
On April 1 and 2 there will be a sports activity and agricultural goods exhibition in Da Ren's Exercise Park. But where is this "Exercise Park?" I think they might be referring to this. 四月一日到四月二日, 達仁鄉公所將在運動公園舉辦運動活動跟農業特產展. 可是運動公園在哪裡呢? 大概在這裡.
2. Da Wu Township 大武鄉公所
The township office recently held an activity to help recent high school graduates find jobs. 最近鄉公所舉辦大專校院辦理區域性校園徵才活動.
Oh, and here's an uninformative article about the colorful buildings in Da Wu. 最近還有新聞報導介紹大武彩虹色的建築物.
3. Jin Feng Township 金峰鄉公所
Work is being done to preserve aboriginal residents' rights to the land. 上個月舉辦原住民保留地土地權利審查會.
The government is also encouraging people in Jin Feng to stop smoking and chewing betel nut. All I can say is good luck with that. 台東縣政府在金峰舉辦不吃檳榔不吸菸的活動. 縣政府在這一點要加油吧!
4. Tai Ma Li Township 太麻里鄉公所
Last Saturday some roads in Tai Ma Li were closed for the Ironman Triathlon. 因為鐵人三項的關係太麻里有的道路被管制.
The hours for the Senior Citizens' Cultural and Health Activity Center were posted. 老人文康活動中心開放時間公布在網路上.
And this isn't in the news, but they're still doing a lot of construction on Highway 9 through Tai Ma Li Township. Jin Luen south is much faster now, but Jin Luen is much slower due to ongoing construction. What will happen to Jin Luen Village after they finish that ramp? 這件事不在最近的新聞報導裡, 可是台9線, 太麻里鄉的那一段還在施工. 金崙往南的交通變得比較快, 可是金崙往北, 因為施工的關係比較慢. 等到工程完成之後, 金崙村怎麼辦?
5. Orchid Island Township 蘭嶼鄉公所
The Township Office offered residents of Orchid Island free transportation back home during the Chinese New Year holiday. Many residents of Orchid Island need to leave the island to find work. 春節的時候, 蘭嶼鄉公所讓蘭嶼鄉的居民免費坐船回家鄉. 很多蘭嶼居民都需要去外縣市找工作.
More depressingly, a lot of fuel and garbage from container ships is washing up on Green and Orchid Islands. 可惜最近很多海洋船的油污跟垃圾被沖到綠島跟蘭嶼.
6. Green Island Township 綠島鄉公所
They will be building new roads on Green Island. 綠島將開闢新的道路.
That fuel pollution problem on Green Island? Many people want to make it a legal issue, too. 綠島油污的問題呢? 台東地檢考慮立案偵辦.
7. Taitung City 台東市公所
There was a slow-pitch baseball competition last week. 上周台東市公所舉辦慢速壘球錦標賽.
I kid you not, they'll be opening the Trump Steakhouse behind the McDonald's on Shin Sheng Road, where the Tasty used to be. They already have a sign up that says "Make food great again." 不是開玩笑的! 新生路上的麥當勞後面將開一家川普牛排館. 這是以前西堤的位置. 店面已經放牌子說"Make food great again."
8. Beinan Township 卑南鄉公所
Beinan is trying to implement its "smart transportation network" plan. Whatever that means. 卑南鄉公所在推動他們的智慧運輸計畫. 我看不太懂這個計畫.
On March 11 the Beinan Township Office sponsored an archery competition for members of aboriginal tribes. 三月十一日卑南鄉公所舉辦原住民射箭賽.
9. Dong He Township 東河鄉公所
The Taitung County Government has plans to build a market for locally produced aboriginal crafts, a restaurant, and a fish market near Jin Dzuen Harbor. 台東縣政府計畫在金樽漁港附近打造餐飲, 在地原住民手工藝展售區, 跟漁村市集.
10. Cheng Gong Municipality 成功鎮公所
Cheng Gong Port, where many fishermen long ago made a living hunting whales, is now known for its whale-watching tours. 很久以前很多成功漁港的漁民捕鯨魚為生. 現在將同一個地點變成賞鯨中心.
11. Chang Bin Township 長濱鄉公所
There will be a marathon in Chang Bin on May 7. 五月七日長濱將舉辦馬拉松.
12. Lu Ye Township 鹿野鄉公所
Some kind of picnic activity? Not much news from Lu Ye... 野餐活動呢? 鹿野的消息不多...
13. Yan Ping Township 延平鄉公所
There will be several harvest festivals in Yan Ping during this and next month. 這個月跟下個月延平的幾個村子將舉辦射耳祭活動.
Have you noticed all the landslides in places like Yan Ping? It isn't only the recent typhoons, but also destructive farming practices. 你注意延平發生多次的土石流嗎? 原因不一定是最近的颱風, 應該也跟農民用地有關係.
14. Guanshan Municipality 關山鎮公所
The Guanshan Township kindergarten is looking to hire a short-term administrative assistant. 關山鎮立幼兒園在找短期臨時行政助理人員.
15. Hai Duan Township 海端鄉公所
Nothing much going on in Hai Duan. No big surprise there. 海端沒什麼消息...
16. Chr Shang Township 池上鄉公所
Also nothing going on in Chr Shang. If you get bored you can drive up there I guess. There's some nice scenery. 池上也沒什麼消息. 你如果很無聊的話, 可以開車去那裡. 那附近的風景不錯!
