first_imgKitty Market restoration progressesBy Ramona LuthiDespite the visible progress made in the restoration of the Kitty Market Guyana Times was informed on Monday, by the foreman of the construction workers that the overall slow pace of restoration was due to the lack of materials provided.City Hall says the Kitty Market is scheduled for completion on November 1According to the foreman, who preferred not to be identified, the original deadline set for the completion of the Kitty Market rehabilitation, in time for Guyana’s Jubilee celebrations in May, would have been possible if the materials were being provided consistently.“To my estimation, this work could’a finish for the 50th anniversary, if we had gotten the materials on time,” the emphasised to this publication.He highlighted that due to continuously “running out” of materials, he is unable to uphold the announcement by City Hall that the Kitty Market is scheduled for completion on November 1.“That is a thing I can’t answer. I could give a deadline if the materials coming how it expected to come. But I can’t do that,” he stated.The Kitty Market rehabilitation began in February of this year and the initial deadline was announced for Guyana’s Jubilee Anniversary in May; however, construction was halted, causing many persons to speculate that the Mayor and City Council had become cash-strapped and was unable to pay contractors for the restoration.This speculation was later confirmed by the Mayor of Georgetown, Patricia Chase Green.Restoration recommenced in July and during a statutory meeting last Monday, Town Clerk of Georgetown Royston King declared that the new completion deadline is November 1, 2016.last_img
