During his visit to Abaco on October 22 the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Works and Urban Renewal visited Green Turtle Cay to “have a look at the infrastructure there and to put that on the radar and on the drawing board.”
Mr. Davis said that “we promised to put the water mains out there on the North end of Green Turtle Cay, and you can see that is done, now we can complete the road works there.”
He added that he told Green Turtle Cay that the government would help them with the fire station, “and you can see that is well underway to being completed.”
Mr. Davis said that Green Turtle Cay’s old administration building has been dilapidated for many years, and noted that the building is on the way to being restored and put to use once again.
“Of course we did a lot of work at the administrative building,” where Local Government, the post office and police station are housed. “We are now being advised that the building in front has a roof that needs changing, and Christopher [Roberts] (GTC council member) has been good to advise me of that, and we have told him we will deal with that as well,” he said.
“The time has come for governance to govern not just at election time but all the time and this is a demonstration of governance governing all the time, not just at election time,” Mr. Davis said.
