The new RMI Combined Utility Board met recently on Ebeye for an orientation with KAJUR, Ebeye’s power company.
KAJUR General Manager Romeo Alfred said this board meeting was in response to KAJUR’s request to have at least four meetings a year on-site in Ebeye. “It is really important to have meetings in Ebeye, as it gives us the opportunity to discuss the issues concerning KAJUR and the Ebeye community,” he said. “When we meet in Majuro, the focus is more centered on Majuro issues and we get less opportunity to discuss our issues.”
As a result of the visit, board members had the opportunity to meet KAJUR’s supervisory staff. “Each staff member made a small presentation and the board received first hand information on the operations and some of the ongoing issues we are facing,” said Alfred.
Board member Senator David Paul also provided the board with an update on the latest developments on land lease agreements under the Kwajalein Atoll Development Authority master land lease. The new leases are an important component for progression of works under the multi-million dollar water and sewer revamp now in the early stages.
