The municipality of the Linden Mayor and Town Council (LM&TC) was recently gifted 4500 gallons of paint to assist with the beautification of its environs. The paint was handed over following a collaboration between members of overseas-based groups and the town. Mayor Waneka Arrindell said that the paint will be used for beautifying several areas in need across the community.The paint that was donated to the town of Linden“From our visit to Stonecrest, Georgia, as it relates to our [city to city] twinning, we were able to meet a group called Libra Management, and they, through some other groups, were able to garner for the town of Linden, 4500 gallons of paint to help to change the aesthetics of Linden and to help beautify [the town]”, Arrindell stated during an interview with this publication on Tuesday.She noted that the Council is happy with the arrival of the paint in the country and is now looking at how to have it utilised. The focus, she noted, will be on municipal, Government buildings, schools and other Government structures that are in need of a “facelift”. Arrindell said the New Horizons team which is currently working on community projects in Linden will also be on board with the initiative.“The New Horizons team is going to designate what they call ‘painting days’ to Linden. They will come up and they will give their support and services…our first painting day should start early June. Spirit of America is another group that gives voluntary support to countries, and they are willing to provide us with the supplies we need to paint – the brushes, rollers and things like that,” Arrindell further related.She added that as soon as the project is rolled out, dates will be published as she urged the community to come out and lend support.“While we’re at it, we are in conversations with the Ministry of Public Infrastructure in terms of brightening up back the signs on the roadways. So if we can have all of that together to change the face of Linden, it’s something that we want to have on board”, the Mayor said.
