Following a meeting hosted between the Private Sector Commission (PSC) and its affiliates on Monday, the body has come to a resolution that the combination of poor policies, ill-judged statements and paucity of significant new investments has caused it to lose confidence in the Government.According to the body, in a statement on Thursday, continued growth and improvement in Guyana cannot continue if investors’ confidence continues to bePSC Chairman Eddie Boyereroded. And it noted that “the trajectory in which the country is heading at the moment does not inspire such confidence.”“Participants noted the decline of the economy. Among the concerns are the crippling new taxes for the mining sector and the institution of Value Added Tax on necessities. The members of the business community present expressed a lack of confidence in the manner the Government is managing the economy.”“This is reflected in the flight of capital from Guyana and the lack of significant new investments in the last two years. Real estate values are dwindling, property for sale inventory is on the rise and wealth is eroding rapidly.”The body called for the Government to create an enabling environment and to increase its engagements with the business community. This, it noted, was to facilitate the creation of employment opportunities, ensure wage growth andSARA head, Professor Clive Thomas“measures to increase the wealth of all Guyanese”.SARA BillOther items on the agenda were the State Assets Recovery Agency (SARA) Bill, the parking meter contract, the rule of law, and the state of the economy. The PSC noted that the SARA Bill, Bill No 3 of 2017, delegated too much power to the SARA Director.“While the consensus of businesses is that there is a need for unlawfully appropriated assets of the State to be recovered, it was felt that the SARA Bill provides too much unchecked power to the Agency. The Director of SARA supersedes the Courts, the Commissioner of Police and the Commissioner General of GRA.”“The Bill will impede business progress as it allows for harassment and political victimisation of legitimate businesses. The Bill allows staff of the Agency to arbitrarily look at private accounts and financial information of citizens without due process. This Bill should be recalled and amended to be consistent with the constitutional rights of citizens.”Parking metersThe PSC has always been a staunch critic of the parking meter project agreed to by top officials from the Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC) and a foreign company. The meters have been consistently boycotted; however, with the result that businesses have reported a drop in sales.Coming out of its meeting, the PSC reported that members of the business community present were demanding that a Commission of Inquiry be set up to investigate the parking meter initiative.The body said that clarity must be provided as to the feasibility studies done, the nature of accountability for the revenues, the role of Government in each stage of the project, the tendering and approval process, and the extent of a legal review of the contract.However, it was noted that given the “obscurity” of the process, consensus was reached that the contract should be rescinded in its entirety.JudiciaryThe PSC also stated that allegations of political involvement in the judicial system were noted with great concern. It emphasised that there must be a separation of the Government and the Judiciary, as well as the role Government plays to ensure full autonomy and adequate financial resources to maintain such a system.“There is need for Judges to be appointed at all levels, especially at the Court of Appeal and the High Court. In addition, the presence of one Commercial Judge to handle the thousands of cases annually is inadequate. This needs to be addressed,” the PSC also added.Recently, President David Granger stated that his Government deserved an “A “grade for the work it has done since coming into office in 2015. This self-assessment has not been well received by sections of society and the Opposition party.
Injured: Nahib SabarThe bandits removed the DVR from the home security systemThe businessman’s home at Vilvoorden, Essequibo CoastA businessman and his family were on Sunday evening terrorised and robbed of millions of dollars in cash and other valuables by gunmen who stormed their home at Vilvoorden, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam).Businessman Nahib Sabar, owner of the N. Sabar Cell Phone Connection, had gone with his wife and two sons to mosque for prayer on Sunday afternoon, after which they visited his mother-in-law, who lives in the same village.They returned home at about 20:00h, and as Sabar was about to enter his yard, he was confronted by a group of armed men dressed as Police officers, reportedly carrying high powered weapons and cutlasses but with masks over their faces.The businessman told Guyana Times that one of the men held him at gunpoint and demanded that he open the door to the house, while the others were holding his family hostage. As he opened the door, his family was forced into the house, but three armed bandits kept guard outside.Those who came into the home demanded $20 million to keep his family alive.The businessman explained that during the ordeal he was beaten as he begged the bandits not to harm his family. After the men continued with their demands and threats, he handed over $3 million and about 30 high-end mobile phones.
“We made an offer to purchase the property and he was not willing to negotiate with us,” Yamachika said. “And we needed the property … in order to make the project work.” Gudzunas did not return calls for comment. The lawsuit states the property’s seizure is necessary in order to eliminate blight – namely the undeveloped patch of land behind the strip mall – and to complete an 11.5-acre commercial center with retail shops and mezzanine parking along Hacienda Boulevard at Fairgrove Avenue. On Tuesday the City Council voted 4-0 to approve a 180-day exclusive negotiating contract with the Los Angeles-based Charles Co. to develop the project. Councilman Louie Lujan was absent from the meeting. At the site of the redevelopment project, the city has already demolished the former La Puente Lanes bowling alley in an effort to move forward with plans. “This project has been in the works for the last two years … Without that particular parcel of land the project is in jeopardy,” Lujan said Monday. “It’s not to say that a project will not get done, but it is to say that the project we have in mind will not get done.” At the strip mall, JRCRealty and Financial Services owner Jose Cabrales admits a move would be a major inconvenience for businesses. But he also said he understands the city’s stance. “I can understand their position,” Cabrales said. “Obviously, they want to get as much revenue as they can.” Other business owners were not as sympathetic. “Just because someone owns land and doesn’t want to build on it, does that give \ right to the city to come in and take it?” asked Ed Lara, who owns Henry’s Shoe Experience. Lara said the patch of land behind the strip mall is only an eyesore now because the city tore down the old bowling alley, making the area visible from the street. He believes a strip mall in La Puente would not work. “People drive through La Puente, they don’t stop in La Puente,” Lara said. But the biggest concerns come in the hardships businesses will face if forced to relocate, Li said. “Where can I find this kind of rent with this kind of frontage?” he asked. Li said he will have to find another location for his shop, but a move will probably amount to a substantial financial loss. The city will offer some sort of relocation assistance to businesses if it comes to that, Lujan said, adding that the city understands the troubles business owners may face if forced to leave. “I wish we \ make everyone happy, but I think what we can do rather than looking at it as a win-lose situation, we have to look at it as a compromise,” he said. Eminent domain is a tool that has been around for decades used to build everything from freeways and schools to redevelopment projects, said Ken MacVey, an attorney with Best Best and Krieger who specializes in eminent domain law. “It’s not unusual, but not a common practice in that the vast majority of land acquisition is handled by negotiation,” he said. He estimates about 98 percent of eminent domain filings settle out of court. firstname.lastname@example.org (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2703 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Attorneys for the city filed paperwork Monday with Los Angeles Superior Court to acquire the 2.7-acre parcel where Li’s shop sits through eminent domain for the construction of a commercial retail center. The filing marks the first time in La Puente’s 50-year history the city has attempted to take land through these means. Eminent domain allows cities to obtain private property to eliminate blight or for redevelopment. The property, at 1313-1335 N. Hacienda Blvd., includes a strip mall where Li’s shop and nearly a dozen other small businesses front the main thoroughfare. Behind the retailers, a patch of open land – making up about two-thirds of the entire property – has been vacant for more than 40 years, Assistant City Manager Gregg Yamachika said. Since September, city officials have been trying to buy the land from Victor Gudzunas. According to assistant agency counsel Catrina Archuleta, the city originally offered $3.5 million. She said the land is now appraised at $3.8 million. Negotiations were unsuccessful. LA PUENTE – For more than two decades, Anthony Li’s hobby shop has been a tradition of sorts. “I’ve seen third generations now,” Li said sitting inside his tightly packed 2,000-square- foot storefront, Tony’s Hobbies and Toys, on Hacienda Boulevard. Li’s shop is crammed with nearly every tool imaginable to create, decorate or upgrade toy planes, cars and boats, and it attracts die-hard enthusiasts from all over – Santa Monica, San Diego, Arizona. But that may soon change if La Puente officials have their way.
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Yesterday, September 17, the Provincial Government announced that it would be investing $69 million to support forest workers impacted by mill closures and curtailments.Following the announcement, Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Forests, Ravi Kahlon, is on tour meeting with community leaders, workers, and contractors to provide more details on the provincial investment.Lately, the B.C. Liberals have been critical towards the NDP claiming that the Government has no interest in rebuilding the forest industry.- Advertisement -Kahlon says the Liberal’s claim is ludicrous as they would have seen a report from 2015 that commissioned the closure of 13 mills.He says the Liberals could have informed workers of this plan in order for them to prepare, instead of burying it and dealing with the issue now.“I would say that’s ludicrous. In 2015, the B.C. Liberals, many of the ministers, would’ve seen the report that they had commissioned that said that there was going to be 13 mills closed. Imagine if that report had been made public at that time, instead of being buried, communities, workers, and families would’ve had time to prepare for this outcome. Instead, we’re dealing with it as it comes.”Advertisement The B.C. Council of Forest Industries had also released their own plan to help out the forest industry, and Kahlon feels that there are a lot of good points made within their plan to fix the ailing industry.Kahlon says the Provincial Government will continue to talk with communities and workers to create a solution for the long term.
National Fire Safety Week takes place next week between October 5 and 12 and the theme this year is ‘Smoking at home can cause fatal fires’.National Fire Safety Week has its roots in the Great Chicago Fire, which occurred on October 8, 1871. The former American President, Calvin Coolidge, proclaimed the first National Fire Prevention Week in 1925 in memory of those who perished in that Fire.Assistant Donegal fire chief Glenn Hamilton.Since then, in early October, it has been observed each year in countries around the world.144 years on, the message regarding fire prevention and fire safety is as relevant today as it ever was. The theme for the 2015 Fire Safety Week is aimed at preventing fires caused by smoking in the home. Many fires start when cigarettes are left in ashtrays, when hot ashes/smouldering butts are dumped into the rubbish bin, or when someone falls asleep while smoking. The tragedy is that these fires were all preventable.Glenn Hamilton, A/ Senior Assistant Chief Fire Officer based at the Letterkenny Fire Station, is determined fire safety is something we all have to take seriously“As well as fighting fires and helping in emergency situations, the Fire Service is also involved in promoting fire safety awareness and educating the general public to be aware of the risk of fire. Fire is a societal risk and we are endeavouring to improve fire safety culture through various annual safety campaigns”Glenn, who comes from Ramelton, has worked in the fire service for 12 years and is a qualified Fire Safety Engineer. “Our aim is to prevent the outbreak of fire, and in doing so protect life and consequential damage to property and the environment. We also work at regulating fire safety in public building to ensure minimum fire safety standards are being met,” he said.Glenn reveals that the county’s 150 fire fighters who make up the 16 brigades will be very busy promoting fire safety throughout Fire Safety Week.“The programme of activities for this year’s Fire Safety Week throughout Donegal includes the erection of fire safety signs at each station; a presentation on fire safety to local communities; bringing fire brigades to a public location to distribute leaflets and engage with the public in passing on the fire safety message or an open night within the station; a fire safety poster competition for primary school children with the prize for the winner being a visit to the local fire station for their class as well as a fire safety presentation and fire extinguisher demonstration on Arranmore Island involving the local crew.”He added they wanted everyone to play their part during National Fire Safety Week by checking on elderly neighbours and relatives.People could also check out more fire safety information at http://www.donegalcoco.ie/services/fireservice/firesafetyathome/ and find out how you can help to prevent and detect fires in your home.
