Below is a statement from His Worship the Mayor on the launch of the new M&CC website:
Welcome to the Mayor and Councillors of the City of Georgetown Website!
It will be our pleasure to serve our Citizens. This website was created to assist you the Citizens and to simplify our services with a modernized approach.
We understand the challenges and struggles you face thus; we are here to attend to your needs and to resolve any issues to the best of our ability.
In a matter of years, I envision the City of Georgetown becoming the fastest developing city in the world, filled with technological enhancements, modern infrastructures, quality Education, better health care systems, and a higher standard of living for All our Citizens.
As leaders, it is time to modernize our Laws and Policies so that we the Guyanese people can also reap the benefits from our economic growth.
In this modern age, it is time to stop living in the past and move towards building better relationships amongst ourselves, the racial and political division must cease in this new era. The municipality’s duty is to our people, this includes serving all Guyanese no matter their ethnicity, culture, gender, status, or political party.
The City of Georgetown cannot run on taxes only, as a result, the Mayor and Councillors of the City of Georgetown continue to implement policies and develop private/public partnerships to raise revenue in assistance of running the City. We will continue to act in accordance with our laws and to serve the people to the best of our ability.
We welcome all investors both locally and internationally. We hope this process offers transparency, consistency, and satisfaction to all stakeholders and citizenry.
We look forward to working along with any Government in collaboration of making the City of Georgetown and Guyana grow.
I see a future where Guyanese can live as one people, one nation, and one destiny.
We must live in love, Unity, and Harmony always.
We are here to serve you!
Thank you for visiting our website.
