Barshinger to Resume St. John Town Meeting Oct. 28

Oct. 25, 2005 – Sen. Craig W. Barshinger will resume a town meeting Friday on St. John to address several concerns of residents aired at a meeting held earlier this month. The meeting, which will take place Oct. 28, 6 p.m., at The Westin Resort Grand Ballroom, will focus on mobile vendors, the Enighed Pond project and the traffic situation in Cruz Bay, St. John, says a press release from the senator's office.
"Several residents had expressed concerns in these areas at an October 7 hearing, and we could not address it at the time because the proper government officials were not available at the meeting," Barshinger said. "I wanted to have a forum where the residents could question the officials directly and have their concerns addressed."
Representatives from the V.I. Port Authority, the Department of Licensing and Consumer Affairs, and George Phillips, acting commissioner of Public Works, will be in attendance.
