St Peters, Sint Maarten — Independent Member of Parliament Maurice Lake commends Minister of Public Housing, Spatial Planning, Environment and Infrastructure Angel Meyers for executing the very important project of connecting the homes on St. Peters Road to the sewage line and for upgrading the trench behind St. Maarten Academy School.
Sewage has been a big issue in St. Peters for a long time and it is good to see Government is addressing the issue, said Lake. He advised the Minister to put funds aside in the draft 2017 budget for sewage connections to homes on Tangerine Road, Lime Road and Grapefruit Road and the hard surfacing of the Genip Road Trench.
As the co-founder and a former president of St. Peters Community Council, Lake is very happy to see vision and hard work of the current Government on Infrastructure projects such as the paving of the main road and adding of sewage connections, the hard surfacing of the dirt roads and the upgrading of the trenches in the area.
Lake looks forward for Government providing work to the “local boys” of St. Peters/Marigot Hill. We need to make sure that the contractor gives a sub-contract to hire the local boys with the new projects in St. Peters.
