Council to lodge complaint

THE Bua Provincial Council is yet to lodge a complaint with police over investigations into the alleged breach of contract by construction contractors it hired to conduct works on council properties.

The council initially entered into a contract with the company for construction work including the extension of the provincial council office and maintenance of building structures owned by the council. Council chairman Alipate Radrodro said their initial agreement was struck off because of the company's failure to fulfil their part of the agreement

Mr Radrodro said a total of $58,633 was allegedly paid to the company and that to date none of the labourers and suppliers of the building materials had been paid and construction works remained incomplete.

"There is a need to change our contractors to ensure that our projects are not thrown down the drain," said Mr Radrodro.

The council agreed that the remaining construction works that were incomplete would be completed by the council.

Mr Radrodro said legal action would be taken against the company.

Police sources in Nabouwalu confirmed they had not received any reports of the alleged abuse.
