What's Going in Taitung City and County Townships/Municipalities 台東市,鄉,鎮最近動向 8

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).  給對台灣比較不熟悉的讀者: 大城市 (高雄, 台南, 台中, 新竹, 桃園, 基隆, 嘉義, 台北, 跟新北市) 以下劃分為"區", 縣 (城市外的地方)則由市, 鄉, 鎮組成.

1. Da Ren Township 達仁鄉公所

With the Southern Cross-Island Highway soon passing through a tunnel between Pingtung and Taitung counties, a special rescue squad was formed to handle potential accidents in this tunnel. 南迴公路上連接屏東縣與台東縣的隧道快要通車了, 所以台東縣消防局特別成立分隊.

And when will that new stretch of the Southern Cross-Island Highway open, exactly?  The latest estimate is December 22 or 23. 南迴公路的最新路段什麼時候通車呢?  目前延至十二月22或23日.

*I've gotta say, the residents of this village work really hard to attract tourists to the area.  I went to a 10K run there not long ago.

**This said, the local EPA seems like a very toothless organization to me.  They organize various cleanups, they have a booth at every local event, but they seem to be doing very little about bigger environmental issues.  The Taitung County Government, fond of showing "progress" via new roads and new buildings, has relegated this branch of itself to the run-down baseball stadium on the other side of town.

NOTE: I skipped over some articles in which the central government gave awards to members of local governments.  It's always hard to tell how meaningful these awards really are.
