There needs to be better planning and coordination between the Water and Sewerage Authority (WASA) and the Ministry of Works and Transport.
This from Reform/Manahambre Councillor Chris Hosein, after WASA dug up a recently paved road in his area.
According to Mr Hosein, a section of the Guaracara/Tabaquite roadway was paved after persistent representation to the Ministry.
However, he said that less than 48 hours later, WASA was on site to dig up the freshly paved roadway to repair a faulty pipeline.
Hosein said WASA was asked to visit the area before the paving to ensure everything was okay with their pipelines, but did not do so.
Hosein suggested the creation of an effective Municipal Inter-Agency Coordinating Committee within each municipality with representatives of the various state agencies.
These members would be mandated to attend and cooperate so that at any given time, all agencies are in sync and aware of scheduled work and the timeframes in which they are to be completed.
