APUA to move into new headquarters

ST JOHN’S, Antigua – Authorities at the Antigua Public Utilities Authority (APUA) are promising efficient and improved services when the company transitions to its new headquarters in the Bencorp Building early next week.

The move, according to Public Education Coordinator, Floree Williams, will be done in a phase process starting this weekend.

On Friday, APUA’s branch located in Cassada Gardens and imobile on Long Street will be closed to the public to accommodate the process.

“Customers need to know that as of Tuesday, May 7, they can no longer conduct bill payments and customer services at the Cassada Gardens branch,” Williams said.

“The cash collections, credit control, customer services, imobile, Inet customer service and the Finance Department will be located at our new business centre.”

That’s at Independence Drive and High Street.

Williams said the departments would occupy the first and second floors of the four-storey building.

During the closure at Cassada Gardens, the High Street Branch and South Mall in Jennings will be opened to accommodate customers.

Williams also explained other efforts would be introduced over time to improve APUA’s service delivery.

APUA purchased the controversy plagued-building some years ago for close to $12 million.
