Each week, the Guardian Angel
column highlights complaints
sent in by you, the consumer, and
provides solutions or directs you
to the appropriate resource.
Problem: Margaret Belfon said
for many years her community in
Kingdom Road Extension, Maturita
Trace, Arima, has been complain-
ing to the relevant authorities about
the poor drainage in the area.
Ms Belfon said, "We sent
requests and complaint letters and
filed petitions to councillors from
the previous and present govern-
ments but to no avail.
"Due to heavy rainfall through-
out the years, the drain is now cav-
ing into the roadway, and is the
cause of various types of mosquito
infestations, including the
Aedes aegypti, which spreads
dengue. A young man from the
area contracted dengue and passed
away approximately three years
"On behalf of everyone who lives
in this community, we are pleading
once again for the construction of
a proper drainage system."
Solution: The Tunapuna/Piarco
Regional Corporation was con-
The Guardian Angel was told

the purview of the corporation and

needs to be done.
Ms Belfon said Kingdom Road
Extension is not a private road and
drainage works were begun years
ago, but were never completed.
Problem: Jean Barrington, from
Guapo, said, "I bought a stove for
my mum in Standards, Coffee
Street, San Fernando, branch in
December 2012 and took the plat-
inum guarantee plan as well.
"Ever since the purchase, I have
had numerous problems. The
burner smokes, the door to the
oven is rusted and falling apart.
We have made numerous com-
plaints and had over seven service
calls in one year.
"I have asked for a replacement
stove but keep getting the
Solution: Ms Barrington s com-
plaint was forwarded to Standards
customer care manager, who con-
tacted Ms Barrington and the com-
pany s service department to gath-
er all the pertinent information.
Ms Barrington s stove will be
collected by the service department
and she will be provided with a
loaner in the interim.
