The Municipal Corporation of Kingston and St. Andrew (KSAMC) will undertake a comprehensive drain cleaning program in several communities within the corporate area.
The initiative, which aims to reduce flooding, is part of KSAMC’s annual preparedness activities for the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 to November 30.
The Deputy Mayor of Kingston, Councilor Winston Ennis, provided details during the Tuesday, May 10 session of the KSAMC monthly council meeting at the society chamber at 24 Church Street in downtown Kingston.
“We have started the usual preparatory work of flood mitigation and drain cleaning in critical areas of the municipality,” he noted.
Councilor Ennis said a list of drains has been completed by the city’s engineering department and a full schedule has been drawn up, “which will ensure the work is carried out and completed to normal standards.”
Moving on to Labor Day activities, he said details will be shared in the coming days. Labor Day is celebrated on May 23.
On Labor Day, many Jamaicans dedicate their time and effort to community and public betterment projects.
