According to residents of Newlands in Clarendon, the JPS has on three occasions in recent years promised to put the necessary infrastructure in place for them to regularise their service.

The Jamaica Public Service (JPS) is to meet with residents of Newlands in Clarendon who are disgruntled about difficulties in  regularising their service with the light and power company.

The residents are angry, following a recent exercise in the community to remove illegal connections.

According to the residents, the JPS has on three occasions in recent years promised to put the necessary infrastructure in place for them to regularise their service.

However, they say no action has been taken by the JPS and they are now left with no other option but to steal electricity.

The residents are begging the company to get the work done.
