Residents and visitors to Petite Martinique will now benefit from recently constructed public washrooms located near the community playing field, where a number of major festivals and other events are held.
The project was constructed under the Grenlec Community Partnership Initiative (GCPI), and officially handed over on September 10.
Members of the community, representatives of Grenlec, and various officials from the Ministry of Carriacou & Petite Martinique Affairs attended the ceremony.
Among them was Senator Norland Cox, Parliamentary Secretary who stated, “The installation of the washroom is a social asset to the community that holds important value to the way of life in Petite Martinique. It will be very useful during festivals, in particular for visitors who come to the island.”
General Manager of Grenlec’s Carriacou and Petite Martinique Operations, Wallace Collins, thanked the various community members who played a role in the completion of the project.
In commenting on the company’s GCPI programme, he said: “Grenlec engages with our communities to identify their needs and useful projects that will improve the lives of community members.”
Grenlec officials are grateful for the assistance of Geotechnical Investigation Services Inc. for the design of the washrooms and consultation on the project, as well as Sky Construction Co. Ltd. for constructing the building.
Grenlec’s Community Partnership Initiative supports initiatives in sport, education, health and general community enhancement.
The company looks forward to continuing its partnership with the community, which positively impacts the lives of many throughout Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique.
