The Linden Utility Services Cooperative Society Limited (LUSCSL) has erected a bus shed for the mining town, near the New Silvercity Secondary School. The shed, built at a cost of $440,000, was handed over to the Linden Town Council at a simple ceremony recently. It was constructed as part of the LUSCSL’s 50th anniversary celebrations in 2010.
According to the LUSCSL Board Chairman Valarie Adams-Sharpe, the shed was a way of giving back to the community. Adams-Sharpe said that the intervention was a timely, given the current rains. She exhorted students and teachers of the New Silvercity School as well as the community at large to care for the shed. The site of the shed was chosen with the school in mind, and the fact that there was no place for students to wait for transportation.
Among those present to witness the handing over was Interim Management Committee (IMC) Chairman Orin Gordon, who also admonished residents to care the facility. While the bus shed was handed over to the Linden municipality through the IMC Chairman, LUSCSL will ensure its maintenance. LUSCSL supplies electricity to residents on the Wismar shore.
