Mayor supports allowance for municipal police officers
Chaguanas mayor Orlando Nagessar supports a monthly allowance for municipal police officers. Nagessar, who attended a military parade to celebrate the Chaguanas Borough Corporation 21st anniversary said it was unfair that municipal police officers were left out when special reserve officers were recently granted a $1,000 monthly allowance.
Nagessar also used the occasion to appeal to the five MPs whose electoral district pass through the borough to lobby Cabinet to make Chaguanas a city. Nagessar said the borough has fulfilled every criteria for city status.
Yesterday’s parade, which was regarded as the largest ever held in Chaguanas, was attended by several ministers including National Security Minister Jack Warner, Local Government Minister Suruj Rambachan and Minister in the Ministry of the Environment and Water Resources, Ramona Ramdial.
The parade began at around 10 am at the Montrose Junction. The mayor inspected the troops before they marched to the borough corporation’s headquarters at Cumberbatch Street.
