Contracts for lighting up 5 playing fields signed on Friday by Dominica Lottery Commission & Trinidadian company Solaris Energy
Contracts for lighting up 5 playing fields were signed on Friday March 11, 2016, by the Dominica Lottery Commission and a Trinidadian company, Solaris Energy.
Minister for youth, sports & constituency empowerment Justina Charles, said the total to be spent on the 5 playing fields will be XCD $749, 592.17 (USD $30,000). She expressed her elation at the commencement of the project, and looks forward to achieving the goal of 24 playing fields.
Last year the 2015/16 national budget allocated $3.4 million to the Ministry of Youth, Sports & Constituency Empowerment, geared towards improvements in sports facilities in a number of communities around Dominica. However, following the passage of tropical storm Erika, these funds were redirected to the rebuilding of devastated communities in Dominica.
