The Environmental Sanitation section of the City Council is addressing health hazards such as the absence of refuse bins, overhanging trees, overgrowths, full septic tanks, clogged surface drains and dirty yards.

Officers are working in Agricola, McDoom, Houston, Meadow Bank, Kingston, Lodge and East Ruimveldt, and as the campaign intensifies they will move to other areas in the city, a release from Public Relations Officer, Royston King, stated.

In addition, vector control officers will be working in cooperation with sanitary inspectors to identify and eliminate actual and potential mosquito breeding places.

Meanwhile, the city is erecting a building to house the administrative arm of the council and construction is estimated to be completed in 18 months. For some time the different sections of the administrative arm have been operating at different locations.

The Administrative De-partment comprises the Town Clerk's office, Personnel, Information Technology, Internal Audit and Public Relations departments.
