Video/Photos: Minister Fahy Tours St. George’s

March 20, 2014

Earlier today [Mar 20], the Minister of Home Affairs Michael Fahy spent some time in St. George’s getting an update on the ongoing refurbishments in the Town Square and at Pennos Wharf. He was joined by East End MPs Kenneth Bascome and Nandi Outerbridge.

Government recently provided the Corporation of St. George’s with a grant of $750,000. The funds are going towards repairs to the dock at Pennos Wharf and Ordnance Island, for the purchase of two new trucks for the Town and for upgrades to the bathrooms in the Square.

The Mayor explained that the refurbishments in an area at Pennos Wharf had been outstanding since Hurricane Fabian, roughly 10 years ago. The maintenance involved repairing deficits in the dock in advance of the influx of visitors who use the dock when ferries berth in St. George’s during the summer season.

He noted that the two new trucks replace vehicles that were more than 12 years old. According to the Mayor, the newer, smaller vehicles will be an asset, as they will be able to maneuver the narrow streets of St. George’s better than their predecessors.

Meanwhile the far side of Ordnance Island’s dock has had a gaping hole in it for the past six years. Construction crews are currently in the process filling in the damage.

Following today’s visit, Minister Fahy said, “It’s always good to visit St. George’s. Today was a particularly positive experience because we’ve had an opportunity to see that the funds we have provided to the Corporation of St. George’s are going towards very good use.

“This Government has maintained that it is committed to the revitalization of St. George’s and we value it as an important part of our tourism offerings. So we will continue to do all that we can to ensure that St. George’s receives the support that it needs.”

    Geeez, touring St George, sounds like they were 10.000 miles away from home. Take off the tie, roll up your sleeves and get some work done instead of sitting around in the A/C all day.
