RICHARDS CALLS IN THE CUTTERS

Nov. 3, 2003 — The aggressive flora that has created blind curves, hidden driveways and ever-narrowing road widths on St. Croix will be attacked immediately, according to a statement from Lt. Gov. Vargrave Richards' office.
"Due to the number of calls I received," Richards said, "I directed the assistant commissioner to start the roadside cutting of of grass and bush."
Funding will come from a "cooperative effort" by Public Works, the Anti-Litter and Beautification Commission and the St. Croix Foundation.
Workers will begin on roadsides near Carambola Golf Course, where a Teens on the Green tournament is set for this weekend.
"We must make sure that the entire island's roadsides are taken care of," Richards said.
