Upgrades at the Plymouth Public Cemetery are set to begin.
The project was launched on Monday (December 10, 2018) at the cemetery by Assistant Secretary in the Office of the Chief Secretary Marisha Osmond, in collaboration with the Division of Health, Wellness and Family Development. Osmond is also the area representative for Plymouth/Golden Lane.
Dr. Agatha Carrington, Secretary of Health, Wellness and Family Development, said the project will be done in two phases, and will be completed at a cost of $427,542.
“…The first phase involves the construction of office space and pantry for the caretaker of the cemetery, washroom facilities for the public and a store room for tools,” Dr. Carrington said.
The contract for the project has been awarded to RSJ General Services, and is scheduled to be completed within one month. The Health Secretary said the contractor will be held accountable “to deliver a quality project within the time he indicated”.
