TTEC pulls plug on nursery school

Wednesday, April 17 2013

AN EAST Tobago nursery school remained shut yesterday after the electrical supply was cut by TTEC over non-payment of an outstanding bill of just over $2,000. Classes at the Speyside Early Childhood Care and Education Centre (ECCE) were suspended due to the lack of electricity. This came amidst a situation where the electricity at the Speyside Community Centre was also disconnected by TTEC in similar circumstances.

The Speyside Centre is among three community centres in east Tobago including Belle Garden and Glamorgan, where the electrical supply was cut by TTEC which is on a disconnection drive to collect outstanding bills. In similar vein, there is also a development where the water supply at the Delaford Community Centre, also in east Tobago, was disconnected by WASA for an outstanding bill of $120,000 accumulated over a ten-year-period (March 2002 June 2012).

A radio announcement yesterday alerted parents to the fact that there would be no school at the Speyside ECCE. Checks by Newsday revealed that the electrical supply at the school was cut by TTEC last week.

Secretary for Education/Youth Affairs/ Sport councillor Gary Melville when contacted yesterday said he was not aware of the situation until he heard about it in media reports.

Melville said he conferred with the Administrator in the Division and learnt that the Division was informed of the disconnection last week Thursday.

He said it could not be immediately verified where the bills had been delivered, since none had come to the attention of the Division. Melville reported that steps had been taken to settle the bill, and the Division would ensure that the electricity supply was restored today.

This would allow for the resumption of classes tomorrow. Newsday subsequently learnt that the bill was paid on Monday, but due to an oversight, the relevant TTEC department was not notified to facilitate re-connection. This was done yesterday, an official said, and it was expected the supply would be reconnected today.
