We, the residents living along the Northern and Southern parts of Buxton and Annandale close to the Sideline-Dam which separates these two villages would like to voice a few concerns.
We must say thanks to the authorities for the resurfacing of the Side-line Dam which has seen the result of more vehicles speeding in and out of this road because whenever roads are resurfaced in different villages, no ‘sleeping policeman’ is catered for. Also this is a relief to residents on only one side i.e. the eastern side because those on the western side cannot access this road because the barricades are still to be dismantled.
These are there since the days when the crime wave was on.
Buxton was hot. And today we take praises as we preach about how safe this village is. Today the police force is much comfortable with the state of affairs in this village.
We wonder if this will happen when there would be a security-checkpoint on the Main Highway between the villages of Buxton and Annandale, as this is the only entrance and exit for those who access these villages because as we see there is no attempt to remove these barricades.
We must also say that there are children from Buxton who attend Annandale Secondary School and those from Annandale who for different reasons are in Buxton. Only the Main Public Road allows accessibility. Can the authorities say why this is so?
Why is there no ‘sleeping policeman’ on the Annandale Market Road which is used daily by school children of the three schools in the area? Why are there no traffic cops on school days at the junction at the Market Road? And of course they are present on Saturday when it is market-day!
Why is it only a few people were asked to remove their stands at the Annandale Market road and others were left? Why is it that the stands in the market are not movable which allows for few robbers to have safe haven in the nights?
Has the Honorable Minister of Works lost his hammer? Why is he not visiting with the Honorable Minister of Local Government who has responsibilities for markets and has a first hand look at the lawlessness which goes on? What does the Minister has to say about the conditions on which vendors ply their trade? Are those who sell food certified to do so? Do they have food handlers’ certificate?
Another concern for the police is in connection with all those private taxis? Are we being told that the police don’t know who the owners of these taxis are? Sometimes these very taxis drop people at the police-stations. Let’s see what will happen when the colour code takes effect soon.
And finally thanks to the Guyana Water Inc. for the “mauby” that comes through the tap. Who says that mauby is cheap? It costs millions to produce it! We hate when it rains!
