Sammy Been, Member of Parliament for ED7 Statement on Operation Rejuvenation

Published

on

#TurksandCaicos, March 12, 2022 – The removal of the derelict vehicles from ED7 is dubbed, Operation Rejuvenation.  It is a collaborative effort than began with my Team and I meeting with Mr. Kenrick Neely, the Director of Environmental Health and instituting a workable plan of action to remove the vehicles from within the Constituency.

We have partnered with The Progressive National Institute, a no- profit established to address environmental Health matters, promote education and to partner with public servants such as myself to advance the productive and progressive environment that benefits all persons within the Turks and Caicos.

Graceway IGA has been an instrumental partner in this process and upon completion of the vehicle removal, residents will see them actively cleaning up the left behind debris.

Through faith and good corporate partnership CBMS and Mr Ralph along with A&J Trucking with Mr. Smith have joined forces with us to ensure this project is carried out safely and successfully. I must add and make it clear. This project did not cause the government a dollar! These are concerned citizens putting in the work free of charge to create a better and healthy community for the residents of ED7.

We will continue until every vehicle is removed. Upon the success of this venture, our phase two initiative with our partners will be the placement of garbage bins and our aggressive ED7 Keep It Clean campaign.

Our work has just begun.

It’s all about Partnership! Progress! And Success!
