Officials from the Municipal Public Health Department visited Bourda and Stabroek markets earlier this week and inspected the operations and practices of owners of snackettes /cook-shops, and vendors of fish and meat.

They also examined medical certificates of all food handlers operating within the confines of the markets.

During the visit, meat-vendors were warned about buying meat from sources other than the authorised agents.

Meanwhile, on Wednesday last, the Town Clerk, Ms. Beulah Williams met with the Medical Officer of Health, the City Treasurer, Director of Solid Waste Management and other City officials to discuss a strategic approach to abate the nuisance of accumulated refuse, indiscriminate dumping and the unsanitary conditions of many yards in different wards.

At that meeting it was cited that a number of yards are untidy with weeds, bushes and long grass, builder waste and miscellaneous unwanted items.

In the circumstances, the administration has instructed that arrangements be put in place to do an inter-departmental project in the Kitty/Campbellville area on July5.

The focus of that exercise will be the provision of refuse receptacles, for dirty yards and other defective sanitary system.

Medical personnel will examine restaurants and meat handling places during the exercise.
