Min. Indar assures further development

Safety in the community, Vive La Force, Region Three will improve following the delivery of 10 street lights by the Ministry of Public Works.

Minister within the Ministry, Deodat Indar during the recent presentation at the Vive La Force Primary School, said the allocation of the street lights is in keeping with a commitment made following a request by the residents.

He informed that over 450 street lights have been distributed to communities across the country.

“A lot of communities in the country are asking for lights, so we don’t have much of it, but what we have we are spreading out, because everybody has issues with darkness in the night, with kids coming home. Everywhere, every community you go is that problem,” the Minister pointed out.
