Moving Barbuda’s infrastructure beyond post-Hurricane Irma state is a priority of Council, Mussington says

Newly elected Barbuda Councilman John Mussington says the Council will be working in earnest to get the island’s infrastructure to an acceptable state since the effects of Hurricane Irma can still be felt even to this day.

This year (2023) will be six years since a Category 5-plus storm devastated the island, and tents are still a part of the landscape, while proper electricity service has not been fully restored.

But Mussington says that Barbudans are a resilient people and they will continue to survive in spite of the attempts of the Gaston Browne Administration to break them.

He says that Barbuda will be placed on a pathway to self-sustained development through the efforts of the Council and with the help of the people.
