…as City Council seeks to “unearth” funds to pay contractorsWaste Disposal Contractors, Puran Brothers Waste Disposal Service, Cevon’s Waste Management Incorporated and Crawler and Wheeler Waste Disposal Service, are once again gearing to withdraw their services from the Mayor and City Council of Georgetown if they are not in receipt of payment for works completed for the last three months.Reports are that the entities are set to take this action by Monday if no funds are forthcoming. The consensus was echoed by the contractors on Wednesday following an emergency meeting with municipal officials.Public Relations Officer, Royston King, confirmed this development yesterday, adding that it was related to the contractors that the municipality is strapped for cash and therefore is not in a position to honour its obligation.“We met with the contractors and the Acting Town Clerk, Cheap Jerseys Online, Ms Sharon Harry-Munroe, told them that we haven’t funds to pay them at this point in time.”King revealed that the contractors were not satisfied with this disclosure, and have since threatened to withdraw their services. According to King, China Jerseys Cheap, the municipality is very much aware that it is considerably indebted to the contractors and therefore will engage every possible measure to acquire revenue to make urgent payment.In this regard, Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Outlet, he said that some 28, 000 demand notices have already been served to defaulting property owners even as the support of the judicial system is being engaged.“We are urging all defaulting property owners to come forward and make their payments urgently.We are looking at every possible area to find funds because we know that waste disposal service is a necessity in the city…”King said that the municipality will be willing to work out payment arrangements with the defaulting rate payers in an effort to ensure that they honour their civic responsibility.He disclosed yesterday, too, Cheap Jerseys From China, that another meeting has already been scheduled with the waste disposal contractors, where the matter of payment will be further discussed. And should any funds become available before Monday, Cheap Stitched Jerseys, he noted that the contractors will be paid.“It doesn’t matter the amount we are able to garner over the next few days even if it doesn’t cover for the past three months we will pay the contractors whatever we unearth…”The developing situation, according to King, will now challenge the ability of the municipality to pay workers’ wages and salaries on the stipulated date of June 25.The PRO had earlier given assurance that efforts would have been made to ensure workers were paid promptly, an undertaking that the municipally has been unable to achieve for some time now.It was not until the first week of this month that workers were afforded their wages and salaries for the month of May.And this was the case since the municipality was forced to pay-off a hefty debt to the Guyana Power and Light Inc., thereby compromising its financial status.Workers are also yet to realise a 10 percent increase in their pay package which was approved following discussions between the unions – Guyana Labour Union and Guyana Local Government Officers Union – and the relevant municipal officials.The increase should have been reflected in the workers’ pay package last month. It was during a recent statutory meeting that the then Acting Town Clerk Yonette Pluck-Cort had revealed that due to the cash-strapped state of the council, NFL Jerseys China, efforts were made to write to the unions informing them of the inability to pay the increase.And given the current state of affairs, Wholesale Jerseys USA, King speculated that the municipality may again this month not be in a position to pay workers in a timely fashion.However, he asserted that efforts will be made to “ensure that our workers are paid as early as possible.We are asking our workers to be patient and to maintain their level of commitment to the municipality even as we try our best to pay them.”

– Minister RamsammyIn its attempt to address the problem of malaria, Wholesale China Jerseys, which has been plaguing primarily hinterland communities, Adam Joseph Duhe Dolphins Jersey, the Ministry of Health is currently seeking to put in place roving health teams that will be dedicated to addressing the situation.This announcement was made by Minister of Health, Dr Leslie Ramsammy.And there were roving teams dedicated to the fight against malaria in the past, a tactic which was discontinued to some extent when the Ministry sought to integrate the malaria service into the regular health services.“We have to go back to the system of roving where we had people who were only dedicated to the malaria problem.” At the moment there is a limited amount of workers that are dedicated to the malaria efforts, an amount which is currently not nearly enough.Nonetheless, Minister Ramsammy said that the health sector has been able to keep the incidence of malaria to a manageable level over the past three years. Attaining this level of success was not done without challenges which even today exist in abundance.According to the Minister, challenges have mounted over the years due to an increase in mining, forestry and other economic activities.Mining, in particular, has increased in Regions Seven and Eight in recent years as compared to Region One and Nine. It was in Region Nine that mining activities had predominantly been undertaken.However, the Ministry has been able to keep the malaria situation there stable at low levels. Nevertheless, Jerseys Cheap NFL, close attention is still being paid to the Region.In the recent past though, Regions One, Seven and Eight have had a reasonably high number of cases which were evidently caused by the increase in economic activities, Wholesale Authentic Jerseys, Minister Ramsammy said.The Ministry, he said, has been primarily battling the disease by distributing impregnated mosquito nets in the hinterland regions. More than 80, 000 have been distributed the Minister said.However, Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, despite the massive numbers, there are yet persons who are failing to utilise the nets. He revealed that following a recent visit to Region Nine it was discovered that more than half of the people at mining camps are not using the impregnated bed nets.There are some that are opting to use regular bed nets to ward off the vector borne disease. “We need people to follow our recommendations to use the nets…They must take every precaution because we can’t keep taking these nets to them every month. Doing this comes at a cost so we are doing as best as we can.”According to the Minister, Cheap Jerseys From China, the Ministry this year will begin another round of net distribution, adding that the procurement of each impregnated net cost about US$10.Meanwhile, the Minister attributed cases of malaria detected in Linden, Region Ten, to the movement of people. He said that Linden and other areas that are not usually plagued by malaria have come under threat, thus the need for the Ministry to maintain focus on several areas all at once.  And to ensure that this measure is sustained there is a need for an increase in both human and financial resources, the Minister said.The Ministry’s fight against malaria saw its prevalence being reduced to 38, 000 in 2005. By the end of 2008, the impact was further decreased to 11, NFL Jerseys Cheap, 000.There was minimal reduction last year, according to the Minister. He admitted that little headway has been made. Nonetheless, the Minister retains his belief that the Ministry will by 2012 be able to achieve an ambitious malaria level of no more than 8, 000 cases.But without the co-operation from citizens and without consistent efforts on the part of the Ministry of Health, there is a likelihood that the impact of the disease could sky-rocket, he speculated.“Citizens must co-operate with us because at the moment we can’t send all of our health workers in the back dam. So people have to adhere to the advisories of the Ministry, ” Minister Ramsammy insisted.

Region Six businessmen want the government to remove the unfair competition which they say is affecting their businesses.They also want the government to be more forthright when dealing with businesses, and quicker action taken when addressing complaints.The businessmen pointed to the smuggling of agricultural and other products from Suriname. Their concerns were voiced when they met with Minister of Business, Wholesale Cheap Jerseys, Dominic Gaskin, Cheap Jerseys Online, at the Nand Persaud Conference Hall recently.One businessman Mr. Jaichand, Cheap Jerseys From China, called for the legalisation of cross border trading to end smuggling.Other persons spoke of the need to reduce some of the taxes on rice to make it more competitive. They pointed out that US rice farmers receive nearly 40 percent in subsidy.Another businessman, Jerseys From China, Mr. Rajendra, noted that Value Added Tax (VAT) is being charged on even bran and cane husk.In response, Minister Gaskin told those gathered that the government that he is a part of will not allow illegal businesses to destroy legal businesses and would work to get those businesses regularize. However, there are challenges since the borders are largely unprotected and there is a need for these borders to be patrolled effectively by the coast guard.The Minister explained that VAT should not be a problem for businesses since they get back the difference between the Input and Output charged. The problem is that the GRA takes an awfully long time to remit VAT to businesses.  This businessmen say should be corrected.
