The Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) will see a change in leadership as the General Manager, Esworth Martin, has announced his voluntary departure from the post at the end of December.
Martin has been in the role for over two decades and previously served as the financial controller of the statutory body.
The decision to step down comes amid growing dissatisfaction from consumers regarding water availability, with some areas reporting extended periods without access to this essential resource.
In fact, the utility company has been struggling to meet the demands of its customers, leading to widespread frustration and complaints.
Prime Minister Gaston Browne has announced an interim general manager will be appointed while an executive search is conducted to find a new general manager.
Browne expressed hope that the new general manager will prioritize the critical nature of water access and work to improve the situation for all members of society.
