TWO major projects are earmarked for East Guadalcanal Constituency this year.
That was according to the constituency’s MP Bradley Tovosia.
“Housing scheme and proper water supply and sanitation are the two projects I am earmarking for implementation this year,” he added.
“They are my priority projects for this year apart from others.”
He said before one can do anything else, they need good housing and clean and proper water and sanitation.
“This is why I am giving these two projects my priority.”
The projects will be funded under the constituency’s Development Fund, which are drawn from tax papers’ money.
Each constituency receives more than $6 million each year in development funds.
Mr Tovosia said housing and water are basic human needs.
On Wednesday this week, more than 6000 roofing irons, a tractor and others building materials were shipped to East Guadalcanal.
Mr Tovosia said that next shipment will be next month.
Constituent Michael Keu said that they are hoping to see more improvement in their housing scheme and proper water supply and sanitation from now and onwards.
