Office space and pantry for the caretaker of Plymouth’s public cemetery, washroom facilities for the public and a store room for tools are among items to be completed in a first phase of an upgrade project for the cemetery announced by Health Secretary Dr Agatha Carrington on Monday.
The project was launched on Monday, with Carrington stating that
the facility needs to be maintained properly and so respective persons must be comfortable.
She said the contract for the project has been awarded to RSJ General Services at a cost of $427,542 and is expected to be delivered in one month.
“We will hold the contractor accountable to deliver a quality project within the time he indicated,” said Carrington.
Assemblyman Marisha Osmond, Assistant Secretary in the Office of the Chief Secretary and Area Representative for Plymouth/ Golden Lane, in her remarks, praised the Division doing the project to bring relief to patrons of the cemetery and to villagers facilitate patrons with washroom facilities now.
“I want to specially thank Mr James (a villager whose house adjoins the cemetery), who has constructed an outdoor facility to assist mourners when they come to the cemetery,” said Osmond
