Colihaut to greater profit from quarry operations

first_img 78 Views   no discussions Sharing is caring! Share Share Prime Minister Roosevelt Skerrit has told councilors of Colihaut that government is looking at ways in which the community can gain greater revenue from the quarry operations in the area.We’re looking at imposing “per tonne a very minuscule amount on the aggregate and sand which will not have any great impact on the overall selling price to the residents of Dominica, but when you add it up overtime, can be a very important source of revenue for the council to be used for the beautification and maintenance of the village of Colihaut,” Prime Minister Skerrit said at the 17th inaugural meeting of the Colihaut Village Council on Monday. He admitted that while the quarries have been useful for several national projects, they have caused inconveniences to Colihaut residents, and he assured the community, the necessary discussions will take course, in an effort to help them gain more from the quarry operations.“We believe that some kind of greater benefit ought to come to the residents of Colihaut because while we appreciate the need to have those quarries for national development, but at the same time we understand and appreciate the great inconvenience which have been caused to the residents of Colihaut”.New chairman of the Colihaut village council Najimi George vowed that his team will work collaboratively to “take Colihaut to the next level” and to pave the way for the next generation. Erick Williams Junior, Debra Leblanc John, Wendell Shillingford, Veronica Pascal, George Elizee, David St. Louis and Barry Casimir are the other councilors making up the Colihaut village council.Source: DBS Newscenter_img LocalNews Colihaut to greater profit from quarry operations by: – March 16, 2011 Tweet Sharelast_img
