City Hall says it still has a program to pull down unsafe Buildings.
This building at the corners of Bourda and Robb Streets has been identified for removal by city authorities and is a major concern not only to nearby residents but stall holders as well, but according to Town clerk Carol Sooba the owners The Methodist Church of Guyana wanted to employ their own demolition crew to dismantle the building and that has stalled up the works.
The building which is overrun by weeds was used some-time ago by the Ministry of Education and evidence of papers can still be seen on the collapsed shelves. The pileup of Garbage and other material also continues in the Yard. The Town Clerk acknowledged that the Building posed a threat to all nearby and said that the council also needs the co-operation of the vendors to remove to allow for the building to be pulled down safely.
This newscast understands too that letters were written to vendors and meetings held to get their co-operation in facilitating the removal. The town clerk also disclosed that similar activities are underway to rid the Capital city of such buildings.
