Officers to vacate quarters

TWENTY NINE civil servants in the Western Division are living in government quarters they are not entitled to, says Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki.

He said his office was in the process of issuing vacation notices to them.

"Our main challenge here is they were supposed to vacate the government quarters a long time ago," he said.

"We will give them notices to start moving out because we have a long list of people that need the quarters."

"In the Ba district, we found 23 government workers still living in the quarters.

"The Nadroga district has three and Ra also has three.

"Ba town had the largest number of our workers with 20 and three found in Lautoka."

He said the search for new houses for civil servants was a major focus this year.

He made this revelation at the heads of department meeting in Lautoka.

It is understood that owners of houses rented by government want an increase in rent because of the high cost of living .
