Kitty Market to be completed in 2 months – Town Clerk

first_imgBy Ramona LuthiIn light of construction being recommenced on the Kitty Market, Town Clerk of Georgetown Royston King announced in a statutory meeting on Monday that the structure will be completed at the end of two months.According to King, this information was relayed to him by City Engineer Colvern Venture prior to the meeting, highlighting the availability of relevant materials.“With regards to the Kitty Market, I’ve received a report from the engineer who has given me a new date of about two months to complete with the availability of the appropriate materials to get the work done,” the Town Clerk noted.The rehabilitation of the Kitty Market began earlier this year, and the announced deadline was Guyana’s 50th Jubilee Anniversary on May 26. However, construction halted, causing many persons to refer to the work as an election gimmick, under the refuted claims that the Mayor and City Council had become cash-strapped and unable to pay contractors for the restoration.During the latter part of the previous month Guyana Times was informed by City Engineer Venture that the reconstruction on the Market had already resumed but was delayed because of the inclement weather.Meanwhile, earlier in this month, vendors related to Guyana Times that the contractor has recommenced works on the structure and the relevant materials were bought and delivered to the location.last_img read more
