EP Chet Greene, the Parliamentary Representative for St. Paul Constituency, has completed a successful tour in his community.
The tour involved clearing roadways and removing debris to support the residents. In a statement posted on social media, Greene mentioned that they also supported several small businesses in the area.
The accompanying rains have caused much silting along the roadways, making it difficult for motorists to maneuver. As a result, they are advised to be extremely careful. Several downed trees will also impact vehicular traffic and pedestrian access. So, it’s essential to exercise caution.
The storm has taken a toll on the roadside vendors’ tents and gear. Now, it is evident that several small businesses are rebuilding.
An assessment of the agricultural sector will begin tomorrow, and an update will be provided once it is completed
“I have engaged the services of a backhoe operator to start the more complex and urgent clean-up tasks today. The community cleaning crews will continue and will engage in a more comprehensive cleanup beginning tomorrow,” he added
Greene expressed sympathy for Carlo Falcone, the tenants, and workers who operated from the section of the Antigua Yacht Club Marina. Unfortunately, in the early hours of the morning, the area that housed the Yacht Club offices, several restaurants, a supermarket, and several other businesses was completely destroyed by fire.
“Our love, prayers, and support are with them. I further commit to meeting with each affected enterprise over the coming days to discuss the government’s assistance in the rebuilding process.
Please note that APUA crews are working island wide to restore power. I ask us to be patient and supportive of their efforts,” he said
“Together we thank God that no lives were lost and invite us to each play our part in the rebuilding process”
