The Ministry of Communities will be responsible for preparing four communities in Guyana for township
These will complement the existing six towns: Georgetown, the capital, New Amsterdam, Corriverton and Rosehall in Region Six, Anna Regina, Region Two and Linden, Region Ten. This was disclosed by Minister of Communities, Ronald Bulkan, during an interview on Thursday with the Government news agency.
To be converted into townships are Mabaruma in Region One, Bartica in Region Seven, Mahdia in Region Eight and Lethem in Region Nine.
Minister Bulkan noted that the communities will be upgraded to township status, each with its own Mayor and Councillors. The new towns will then be able to provide all the services that other Municipalities offer. He explained that services would include sanitation, banking, and other governmental services such as provision of Passports and Drivers’ licences.
The Minister added that this would enable residents of the new towns to remain within their township, thereby precluding them from having to travel all the way to Georgetown to access such services.
Minister Bulkan expects that the four new towns would be operational by the time Guyana observes its 50th Independence Anniversary on May 26, 2016.
