Central gov’t in fresh exercise to enhance city
The Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development and several other Ministries are on a three-day exercise to address the solid waste problem in Georgetown, a release from the Government Information Agency (GINA) said.
The Agriculture, Health, Public Works, Tourism and Natural Resources ministries are supporting this exercise which ends today.
According to GINA, the City Council is not directly involved in this clean-up due to limited resources in terms of equipment.
Minister within the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development, Norman Whittaker said that his ministry has not taken over the role of the Georgetown municipality, “Ultimately, we as a government have a responsibility to the citizens of this country to ensure that the environment in which they live is kept clean.”
