Coomacka, (not to be confused with Kumaka, found somewhere in the North West) is the proverbial  ?diamond in the rough?- a small obscure community, that many people, even in Linden, which is less than 10 miles away,[url=$%&/]NFL Jerseys Supply[/url], have just heard about.It is the largest of the ??mines communities?, having over the years, taken precedence over its sister mining villages, Three Friends and Maria Elizabeth (Yararibo mines), which are about three to five miles away.Coomacka, is where one will find the Montgomery Mines, where prolific bauxite mining has taken place, ever since the ore was discovered there in the early days.Evidence of all that mining is very much in the surrounding beautiful undulating terrain- with huge variegated mountains bidding one welcome.Most people cannot resist the temptation to climb them- or at least attempt to.Its beautiful beach, which seems bent on bridging the Demerara River, is a definite tourist attraction, though many argue that it contributes significantly to the community?s flooding during the high tides.With little or no dredging of the river, what had originally been a little mound, has now grown into a massive sand beach.Considering all that Coomacka has offered to the coffers of this country, through the large scale mining of bauxite at the Montgomery Mines and its environs over the years, residents are adamant that too little attention is paid to the community.RoadsThe access road to get to Coomacka is probably one of the worst in the country, with huge water-filled craters, where the constant fear of commuters is,[url=]Wholesale Jerseys From China[/url], ?which one will we get stuck in?. And there are many of them.Residents said that they have continuously been making calls for the road to be fixed, but those pleas have obviously fallen on deaf ears.Within the village itself, there is only one thoroughfare, which is also in a dire state of disrepair.During a visit to the community on Saturday,[url=$%&/]NFL Jerseys Supply[/url], Chairman of Region 10 Sharma Solomon promised that the Region would have to fix the road, even though no money was budgeted for that purpose.He added, however, that if the resources available at the Region are not adequate to fix the road,[url=$%&/]NFL Cheap Jerseys[/url], ?residents would have to do much more than clap and ask to have the road fixed.?But just what is in the budget for Coomacka?Solomon told the residents that the RDC has limited input in the budget; however, recommendations were made for increased amenities for the school and the Health Centre.He explained that out of the $4B requested for Region 10, only about half that amount was approved.He added that the Region has been repeatedly asking for one and a half mile of road every year for the community, (in their budget).?We asked for it again, but we did not get it, so the Council or the Region will have to fix the road.?Residents also voiced concerns about the inadequate transportation for school children, to which Solomon gave the assurance that it will be addressed. UtilitiesThis slushy quagmire is part of the ?mines? road.Coomacka has no potable water, so residents have to buy it or depend on the rain. The nearby Demerara River serves as the community bathroom, but during periods of heavy rainfall and flooding, the water becomes contaminated with the contents of pit latrines and pig and fowl pens.Residents have expressed disappointment that with all the infrastructural work, costing millions of dollars, being undertaken by GWI in Linden, no consideration was given to Coomacka.This has raised the ire of many who consider the community as the backbone of Linden, since significant amounts of bauxite have been extracted from its Montgomery Mines over the years; and residents are more than cognizant of the fact that the mining of this precious ore has been the mainstay of the town of Linden from its inception.There is no landline telephone service at Coomacka.With the litany of woes facing this small community, it is understandable that Region 10 Chairman Sharma Solomon would advise its residents to forget their minor disagreements, petty grievances and political affiliations and work together as one for the common good and development of the community.Those sentiments were echoed by all the Councilors, who also made the trip to Coomacka.During the visit residents gathered at the community pavilion for the installation of a new Community Development Committee by national Director of CDCs Philomena Sahoye-Shury.The new CDC was installed on June 5th,[url=$%&/]NFL Jerseys Authentic[/url], by Shury, but eleven days later, a few residents, including members of the former CDC, reportedly visited the Regional Chairman, and requested that he visit the community, and install another CDC, as they were not in favour of the new body.Saturday?s meeting was the last of three meetings held between Solomon and the community.The Regional Chairman told residents that there is no time that anyone should come to a community and ?isolate a few persons and select a few persons, as that is what is creating the problems in Coomacka right now.?While the members of the new CDC claimed that the former one was doing nothing, some residents expressed dissatisfaction with the process of selecting the new group,[url=http://www.2017draftshop@#$%&/adoree-jackson/]Adoree Jackson Authentic Jersey[/url], saying that the process was not transparent.That conviction led to Solomon requesting that residents vote by a show of hands for whichever group they wished to run the affairs of the community.The new CDC group garnered 23 votes, while the former scored 13.?The decision will stand despite the disagreement,? Solomon declared.After Solomon acknowledged the new CDC, the Chairman Dexter Harding introduced himself and pledged to work with his team for the development of the community.The new CDC is made up of, among others, its Chairman Dexter Hartman, Vice Chairman David Adams, Secretary Bernadette Torres and Assistant secretary Bernadette Jones.
