Over US$50 Million Spent on Infrastructure After Maria
Parliamentary Representative for the Soufriere Constituency Denise Charles says over fifty million US dollars has been spent on infrastructural works since the passage of Hurricane Maria.
Charles formed part of a delegation of Dominica Labour Party representatives who spoke to Dominicans in New York over the weekend.
She said there has been investment in several areas of development since the storm.
“We have spent over US$ 50 million in clearing roads and dredging rivers and ravines,” Charles highlighted. “We spent over US$3.3 million to restore water immediately to every village, and we are building more resilient water systems.”
Also addressing the event was Parliamentary Representative for the Portsmouth Constituency, Ian Douglas, who said several of his constituents are due to receive new housing units by July.
Housing projects are ongoing in Cotton Hill and Glanvillia, Portsmouth.
