The parking meter contract signed by the Georgetown Mayor and City Council with Smart City Solutions Inc, a company collaborating National Parking Systems” (NPS) to install solar-powered parking meters in critical areas of Georgetown, will be reviewed by Attorney General Chambers and Ministry of Finance.
This was announced by Minister of State, Joseph Harmon today at a Post Cabinet Press Conference. He noted that the review has nothing to do with the rates for parking: this will be decided on by the M&CC.
Mayor Chase-Green on Monday told a press conference that the council has the right under Chapter 28:01 to proceed with developmental works for the Local Government Authority they oversee.
In this regard, Minister Harmon said the government respects the independence of the council, however it will be looking at the illegalities.
City Mayor Patricia Chase- Green, who led a three-member delegation to Mexico on a parking meter awareness visit, has said that it the project would be rolled out on September 1, 2016.
Cabinet was briefed on the issue by Minister of Communities who is responsible for Local Government, Ronald Bulkan.
