Barrack negotiations continuing
Al Barrack will be paid, but the negotiations are ongoing.
Minister of Housing and Lands Denis Kellman said government was close to reaching an agreement with the contractor who is owed more than $50 million.
Kellman addressed the issue today after touring the home of Pearline Downes in Bathsheba, St Joseph.
Last month, a frustrated Al Barrack padlocked the Warrens Office complex, shutting out hundreds of public sector workers.
He later removed the chains after Minister of Finance Chris Sinckler promised he would be paid some money at the end of that week.
Barrack reported receiving $5 million that week instead of the $7.5m which had been promised. (LK)
