House teasers: Morgan’s Point, Belco sale
The House of Assembly is expected to hear about status of the stalled Ritz-Carlton Caroline Bay hotel resort at Morganís Point in Southampton.
A statement on the development will be given this morning by Curtis Dickinson, the Minister of Finance.
A construction source told The Royal Gazette this week that the project had stalled and that money was owed to subcontractors who worked at the site.
Walter Roban, the Minister of Home Affairs, will update the House on the sale of Belco to Algonquin Power & Utility Corporation, a Canadian utility group.
Mr Roban will also table amendments to the Electricity Act.
Lieutenant-Colonel David Burch, the Minister of Public Works, is to speak on the West End Development Corporation, while David Burt, the Premier, will make a statement on technology in education.
Legislators will also debate the recommendations of the Green Paper on transport, which was brought to the House last month by Zane DeSilva, the transport minister.
