NDC Chairman, community at odds over trench clearing
Members of a concerned residents’ group in Mocha/ Arcadia are calling on the Chairman of the community to be involved in the community enhancement project.
The aim of the project is to ensure that the trenches in the New Housing Scheme are cleared.
Reports are that machines were organised by the residents to execute the project but, owing to the narrowness of the streets in the scheme, there was dire need for a truck to remove the stuff as the machine cleared the trenches.
Residents said that permission and assistance from the Chairman of the community, Gregory John, was sought as early as January via writing to the Neighbourhood Democratic Council (NDC). Claims are that John considered the letter to be ‘rude’.
Residents also stated that based on ‘reliable sources’, John has a sum of money, some $700,000, which he could use to assist with the removal of the debris.
However, when contacted, John said that no letter was written to the NDC and he has no idea of the project that is currently in progress.
