Here’s what’s on tap at the V.I. Legislature this week.
Gov. John deJongh Jr. offers News Years wishes, and thanks to the people of the Virgin Islands for the honor of electing him to serve as their governor.
It is so good to see that WAPA is switching from fossil fuel to propane. Maybe this will decrease the utility bill. As for the utility bill, I suggest that anyone with a drastic increase to their bill (with no drastic changes to usage) question it. A family member of mines had a increase in his WAPA bill from $292 to $400 in one month, and from $400 to $895 the next. The $400 bill was not questioned, because a new ac unit was added to the home; however, the thought of paying a WAPA bill that was a mortgage note was unbelievable. After going to WAPA to question the bill, my family member was notified that the meter was read wrong. Long story short, WAPA is crediting him for the two months. The $400 bill was wrong also. I'm concerned for all the elderly people who don't question their bill and just pay it. Will they be reimbursed also??
