Municipal boundary changes announced

On November 8, two area changes of municipalities were announced in the Royal Gazette.

Already approved by the board meeting on July 21, 2009, some area of the TAO Bueng Khong Long (องค์การบริหารส่วนตำบลบึงโขงหลง) gets transferred to the subdistrict municipality Bueng Khong Long เทศบาลตำบลบึงโขงหลง. As usual the announcement on the TAO [Gazette] does not include a map, whereas one can compare the map in the announcement on the municipality [Gazette] with the an earlier one from the creation of the sanitary district Bueng Khong Long in 1993 [Gazette] - which shows a really strange boundary leaving some of the central urban area out of the municipality.

The other one was about the boundary of San Phranet (เทศบาลตำบลสันพระเนตร) [Gazette] with
San Na Meng (เทศบาลตำบลสันนาเม็ง) [Gazette]. As there is no announcement found in the Royal Gazette on the creation of these municipalities - they were upgraded from TAO status in 2008, thus two of the hundreds of missing announcements - the only thing one can read from the map in the two announcements this time is the location of the municipality office...
