CLEAN UP OR RISK FINES

With the August 1 hurricane clean-up deadline approaching, Health Commissioner Wilbur Callender says those not in compliance will be cited and fined.
Callender commended those who have made an effort to clear away debris in preparation for hurricane season, but said the amnesty program ends August 1 and those who are not in compliance will be penalized. Fines up to $500 can be levied for non-compliance.
"During this hurricane season, if we should experience a storm large items such as old stoves, refrigerators, galvanized and abandoned vehicles pose a danger to life and property."
For more information call Division of Environmental Health on St. Croix at 773-1311 and on St. Thomas at 774-6880.
