A new mayor and a deputy were on Thursday elected to serve the town of Corriverton, Upper Corentyne Berbice. Businessman Winston Roberts is the Mayor-elect, while his Deputy is fellow businessman Imran Amin.
Sixteen councillors have also been selected to serve on the Council. Following the November 12 Local Government Elections, the People’s Progressive Party gained fourteen seats on the Council, while the APNU secured two seats.
Roberts, the 13th Mayor of Corriverton, has promised that there will be no new taxes, but residents are to benefit from improved streets under a proposed road rehabilitation programme. Also high on his agenda is the installation of more streets lights in the town.
Roberts says emphasis will be placed on rehabilitating the Line Path Cricket Ground, in addition to lobbying for a permanent landfill site.
Roberts has also assured the newly elected Aors that he will serve with integrity and commitment.
