Half of the political divisions (or areas) in the Corporate Area will be targeted in the Kingston and St. Andrew Municipal Corporation’s (KSAMC) first phase of its drain-cleaning project, expected to start this week.
Acting Mayor of Kingston Winston Ennis made the declaration during Tuesday’s monthly sitting of the KSAMC meeting for July.
“As we speak, we have our Engineer Department in the field and we’re hoping to start some drain-cleaning before the end of this week,” he announced.
“Normally, we do the programme in two phases. So we are starting with 21 divisions and then continue with the other 19 as soon as we complete the first phase. We are hoping to finish both phases in September,” he told the press in an interview after the adjournment of the Corporation’s meeting.
Rae Town, Dallas, Greenwich Town, Seaview Gardens, Duhaney Park, Waterhouse, Chancery Hall, Hughenden, Tivoli Gardens, Denham Town, Havendale, Norman Gardens, Springfield, Barbican, Mavis, Harvour View, Norbrook, Payne Land, Maxfield, Hagley Park and Cassia Park will be the first of the city’s 40 divisions to have their drains cleaned.
