After more than twenty years without effective maintenance or infrastructural
improvements, change is coming for the users of the Browns Town Market in St.
Ann. Following a tour of the facility yesterday, Minister of Local Government and
Community Development Hon. Desmond McKenzie announced the allocation of J$15
million for works to be done.
“This is very popular Market. Over 700 vendors operate here, and that gives a clear
idea of the customer volume that passes through in order to create a profitable and
sustainable living for them. The conditions are unacceptable and so works are going
to be quickly done to create a properly functional Market. The Technical Team will
finalize the design and related aspects for the improvement works, and $7 million
will be made available immediately for the most urgent repairs. The remaining funds
will facilitate other infrastructure needs once the normal approval procedures are
completed.”
Mayor of St. Ann’s Bay, Sydney Stewart, who also participated in the tour, said a
preliminary estimate for works was done by the St. Ann Municipal Corporation. “We
visited the Market last week and our technical team developed a costing on that
basis. We are elated at the speed of the Minister’s response. He has charged us to
ensure that all procedures are adhered to and we will ensure that everything that is
done will not only serve the people of Brown’s Town and its environs, but will also
stand up to scrutiny.”
