Abandoned Vehicle Task Force Operating Monday in Long Path

March 20, 2005 – St. Thomas/Water Island Administrator James A. O'Bryan, Jr., announced Friday that the Governor's Abandoned Vehicle and Beautification Task force has commenced limited operations as a result of Governor Charles W. Turnbull's approval of rezoning applications for the Bovoni compound which house the abandoned vehicle operation.
O'Bryan revealed that the Task Force has cleaned and removed close to 100 abandoned cars from areas of Subbase, Savan, Upper Contant and Garden Street in the last two weeks. Other derelict vehicles have been removed from heavily traveled main roadways. On Monday, March 21, 2005, the task force will conduct abandoned vehicle removal operations and neighborhood clean-ups in the Long Path area after 9 a.m.
Residents living in the Long Path area are requested to remove cars from that narrow street after 9 a.m. to allow the crews and heavy equipment to operate and safely remove derelict cars from the area. O'Bryan apologized for any inconveniences the residents of Long Path may encounter as a result of the operation but indicated that an improved neighborhood environment will be the end result of the day's activities.
