Squatters should pay up for water
THE?MAN?who holds the key that allows water to flow to squatters at The Belle, St Michael, believes they should each pay $20 toward the water bill which now stands at over $20 000.
However, Coleman “Magee” Quintyne, the key keeper for the past 16 years, said he would not be collecting “anybody’s money”.
Quintyne, 64, explained that he was selected as the person to keep the key and unlock the lone pipe located at the National Petroleum Corporation’s (NPC) headquarters at nearby Odessa McClean Road so that squatters could have access to water.
However, he said he was not aware that they had racked up a bill of over $20 000.
