From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Island councils existed for:
- Aruba (until its secession from the Netherlands Antilles in 1986)
- Sint Eustatius
- Sint Maarten
The latter three were until 1 April 1983 governed by a single island council:
Upon the dissolution of the Netherlands Antilles in 2010, the island councils of Sint Maarten and Curaçao have become the Estates of Sint Maarten and the Estates of Curaçao respectively. The island councils of Bonaire, Saba and Sint Eustatius (the Caribbean Netherlands), kept their name and became island councils of the special municipalities of the Netherlands.
