Brief: Tax Assessor, Cadastral Offices Temporarily Closed in Christiansted

March 16, 2007– Lt. Gov. Gregory Francis announced the temporary closure of the Tax Assessor and Cadastral offices while emergency repairs are made to those offices.
In a press release dated Friday, Francis alerted the public that both offices will be closed until sometime next week to "resolve health-related concerns of the employees."
The Office of the Tax Assessor is responsible for matters relating to property tax bills and other tax-related information, while the Cadastral Office deals with property boundaries and surveys.
Customers with urgent tax questions can call the Frederiksted tax assessor's office at 772-3115. Property maps and land surveys are housed in the Cadastral office.
According to Francis' press secretary, Celeste Lawrence, employees in those offices were concerned with the quality of the air. Francis immediately addressed those concerns by closing the offices and making arrangements to replace the carpet with ceramic tiles and then conduct an air-quality test in the area, she said.
In the press release, Francis apologized for any inconvenience, adding that the Christiansted office is expected to "resume its normal business hours early next week."
