Govt to Clear Multi-Billion Dollar JPS Debt by End of Financial Year

Local Government Minister, Desmond McKenzie says by the end of this financial year, for the first time in Jamaica’s history, the Government will pay off all monies owed to the Jamaica Public Service company for streetlights.

McKenzie is lauding the Finance Ministry for a multi-billion dollar allocation to paying off the debt.

Minister McKenzie says significant moves have been made since 2016 to install streetlights and make communities more secure. But he says a lot of work is left to be done.
