Lands and Surveys charges for copier are extortionate

Dear Editor,

The machine which copies maps and plans at the Lands and Surveys Department was only recently repaired after causing massive frustration to the public during the months it was out of service.
Now that the Lands and Surveys copier is functioning, their charges for copies are a rip-off of Guyanese citizens. A copy of a plan done at this department costs at least eight times more than the same copy done by private copying businesses like Metro.

Would the CEO of the Lands and Surveys Department, the Minister responsible for this Department and the Leader of the Opposition and his Shadow Minister urgently review this matter and bring some relief to the public? If they do, would they kindly make a statement so that the public could be informed.

Yours faithfully,
Victoria Giles
