Lindeners anxious for Gov’t to honour its end of the bargain in August 21, 2012 Linden agreement
Today Regional Chairman Sharma Solomon told this Newscast that some amount of frustration is stepping in and there is uneasiness within the community. He said the region is still engaging the Government and he is optimistic that some significant movement will be made at their next engagement.
The agreement signed between region 10 and the Government includes the creation of a technical team that has specific terms of reference to review the issue of the tariff increase; the establishment of an economic development committee, the return of the Region 10 television stations, and a regional land selection committee.
Solomon said he expected much more at this point but pointed to what he thinks may have stalled the process.
One of the sore issues for the community is the return of the television station to the region. According to the Regional Chairman some level of movement with relations to the licensing process is taking place.
Lindeners last year put a halt to Government’s attempts to impose a hike in electricity tariffs on the community with over a month of protest.
