The people of Salisbury have served notice to Public Works Minister Rayburn Blackmoore that they are ready to take action to have their roads fixed.
The minister is being told that he is being given one week “and no more” to respond to their request for dialogue on the road conditions of feeder roads in the area.
Parliamentary Representative for Salisbury Hector John has warned that if Minister Blackmoore fails to respond to the community at the stipulated time, they won’t be responsible for what happens next.
According to John, on November 24, 2011, the people of his constituency wrote to the works minister asking for dialogue to address the matter of repairing feeder roads in Salisbury, Morne Rachette and Coulibistrie.
“(No response) Up till now, tomorrow will give it two months and he has not responded. He has disrespected the people of the constituency. He has failed to even acknowledge that he received the letter,” John said.
“We are giving him one week and no more. If he does not respond to us, do not blame the people for what happens after,” the Salisbury MP said.
“We have been doing everything in our power to ensure that we repair the feeder road in the area and Blackmoore has refused to meet with farmers,” area parliamentary representative John alleged.
