GT residents being consulted on garbage collection fee – City Hall

first_imgWith just a few weeks until budget 2019, the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) is currently consulting residents of Georgetown on the introduction of a garbage collection fee. Speaking with Guyana Times, City Hall’s Public Relations Officer, (PRO) Debra Lewis noted that citizens are being briefed on the initiative and recommendations are being gathered as to how much they should pay.“We’re preparing right now for budget 2019, so we’re doing the consultation and looking right now at examining the comment of citizens in regards to how much they should pay,” she said.It was related that the decision was still under consideration but the initial plan was to impose a $100 fee for each barrel of garbage that is being collected by the Council.Earlier this year, Town Clerk Royston King had also posited that consultations were necessary so that the Council could be aware on the thinking of the people.So far, the discussions were done by the Public Relations unit in collaboration with the Solid Waste Management Department via phone and interpersonal communication. Residents of South Georgetown and the La Penitence areas were involved in the talks.In January, King had announced that the Council was contemplating whether or not to attach a fee to the free garbage collection that is being done presently. The Town Clerk had stated that garbage collection required a hefty sum of money to carry out operations and in some cases; the Council is unequipped with some of the other resources. This revelation came at the peak of negotiations between solid waste contractors – Cevons Waste Management and Puran Brothers – who had once again pulled their services, even though Central Government had cleared the over $300 million debt owed by the City Council.At this point, $75 million worth in equipment for the Solid Waste Management Department is expected to arrive soon which was primarily procured to boost operations. Solid Waste Director, Walter Narine had informed that the contract for the supply and delivery of a garbage truck, as well as a tractor and two trailers went to the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB).The bid was awarded to Industrial Supplies of Guyana (ISG) which won the bid for the supply of the garbage truck and should be in a position to deliver same in October. He revealed that City Hall initially intended to purchase two garbage trucks, but was unable to do so, since it would have exceeded its $75 million budget.October is supposed to be the month where a citywide consultation in Georgetown was scheduled to commence. This was initially in the planning stage.last_img read more

WHY WE’RE PUTTING OUR ‘OLD’ SHIRT ON SAM COMING BACK TO THE HILLS!

first_imgIt could be just another one of those beautiful omens.Or then again it could mean absolutely nothing in the battle for Sam Maguire.Thousands of GAA fans across the county may just be about to believe that we could possibly be in for a repeat of the 1992 All Ireland Final or a place in the final at least. Why else then are hundreds of GAA fans ordering the retro 1992 version of the jersey worn by Anthony Molly, Tony Boyle, Martin McHugh and company?A spokesman for the company which makes the jersey retrogaaa.com said orders have been coming thick and fast for the famous jersey.‘Perhaps Donegal fans feel that this could be their year after 1992. We have had a lot of interest in the jersey.“The new jersey looks great but a lot of people might feel a little superstitious and want to hold onto or relive the feel-good factor for 1992,” he said. But while the retro jersey may be making a comeback, sales of the new jersey are also reported to be huge.Come August 28th, those sales could just go through the roof ahead of a certain date in September.EndsWHY WE’RE PUTTING OUR ‘OLD’ SHIRT ON SAM COMING BACK TO THE HILLS! was last modified: August 4th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

UC finds official violated policies

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake Greenwood told investigators she tried to avoid a conflict by breaking off the business partnership before Goff, a former UC Santa Cruz administrator, began the new position. But investigators said Greenwood improperly played a key role in determining Goff’s appointment. “Given their business relationship, Dr. Greenwood should not have participated in any way in decisions respecting Dr. Goff’s employment,” the UC report said. The university will not take any action against Greenwood because she has already resigned, said UC spokesman Paul Schwartz. After she resigned, Greenwood was granted a controversial separation package in which the university agreed to pay her $301,840 a year over the course of a 15-month leave. She was also promised a tenured professor position at UC Davis that will pay $163,800 a year. OAKLAND – The University of California’s former highest-ranking academic officer violated conflict of interest policies by helping hire a friend for a management position, a UC investigation concluded. The university system’s former provost, M.R.C. Greenwood, who resigned last month amid questions about her hiring practices, should have recused herself from the 2004 hiring of friend and business partner Lynda Goff for a job at university headquarters in Oakland, UC investigators concluded in a report Wednesday. Shortly after starting as provost, Greenwood hired Goff for a temporary position in the Office of the President, then earlier this year helped promote her to a permanent slot as director of UC’s new Science and Math Initiative. The two women owned rental property together in Davis at the time of the hiring. In the same report, UC investigators determined that one of Greenwood’s subordinates, university Vice President Winston Doby, improperly helped create a midcareer internship for Greenwood’s son, James Greenwood, at UC Merced. But there was no evidence that Doby did so at Greenwood’s request, the investigators said. Doby remains on administrative leave while auditors look into his involvement in two other hires.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
