In­vest Saint Lu­cia and rel­e­vant Min­istries work to re­solve is­sues af­fect­ing the Augier Com­bined School

The Star (St. Lucia) - - COMMENT -

In­vest Saint Lu­cia (ISL) along with the Min­istries re­spon­si­ble for Health, Agri­cul­ture and Education, as well as other rel­e­vant govern­ment agen­cies, would like to in­form the pub­lic, and in par­tic­u­lar the Augier com­mu­nity, that a joint com­mit­tee of the said agen­cies and Min­istries is work­ing as­sid­u­ously to re­solve the long-stand­ing is­sue of the odour em­a­nat­ing from the op­er­a­tional pro­cesses of var­i­ous poul­try farm­ers in the Augier com­mu­nity, and its ad­verse im­pact on the Augier Com­bined School and its en­vi­rons.

In or­der there­fore to achieve an eq­ui­table and prac­ti­cal so­lu­tion to this is­sue, it is im­per­a­tive that due con­sid­er­a­tion is given to the valid in­ter­ests and con­cerns of all af­fected par­ties. In­deed, the cur­rent cir­cum­stances of this is­sue do not lend to an overnight so­lu­tion, but ISL, along with its part­ner agen­cies, is com­mit­ted to en­sur­ing a fi­nal and per­ma­nent so­lu­tion.

In that re­gard, reme­dies, both tem­po­rary and per­ma­nent, are be­ing pur­sued jointly with the req­ui­site ur­gency and dis­patch.

ISL and the Min­istries with re­spon­si­bil­ity for Agri­cul­ture, Education and Health take the op­por­tu­nity to con­vey deep­est re­grets for the in­con­ve­nience and dis­rup­tion caused to stu­dents and staff of the Augier Com­bined School and ask for even more pa­tience and for­bear­ance as this long­stand­ing but dif­fi­cult prob­lem is defini­tively and sat­is­fac­to­rily set­tled as quickly as is hu­manly pos­si­ble.
