Ang Sila upgraded to town municipality

Wat Thep Sathit in Ang Sila
Announced in the Royal gazette yesterday was the upgrade of the subdistrict municipality Ang Sila (เทศบาลตำบลอ่างศิลา) to a town municipality (เทศบาลเมืองอ่างศิลา). The announcement was signed on February 10 by Deputy Ministry of Interior Bunchong Wongtrairat (บุญจง วงศ์ไตรรัตน์). I suspect this is also the date the change has become effective.

This announcement would have slipped through my automatic monitoring, because in the Gazette database its title was entered with "ปลี่ยนแปลงฐานะเทศบาล", omitting the first character - "change status of municipality" correctly reads in Thai as เปลี่ยนแปลงฐานะเทศบาล. But in the PDF itself the title is of course correct.

And it also might have slipped through because I haven't seen the board meeting transcript dealing with this upgrade, still the latest found is from September last year, so half year no information on the latest changes. Unlike before now again the Royal Gazette is the only source of the latest information. I only hope that the publication of the transcripts will resume soon.
