    Minister of Housing Inspects Government Projects

    During his visit to Abaco on July 20, Minister of the Environment and Housing Kenred Dorsett addressed concerns with the number of government homes in Spring City that are boarded up and unoccupied stating that he intends to have them occupied as quickly as possible to avoid any further “depreciation of the assets here in Abaco.” “My concern continues to be that we have completed homes in Spring City and unfortunately my understanding is that we haven’t provided or facilitated the mortgages to enable people to occupy those homes,” he said.
