TASK FORCE REMOVES 27 MORE ABANDONED VEHICLES

July 15, 2003 – The latest roundups of abandoned vehicles on St. Thomas are taking place in Hospital Ground, the Upstreet neighborhood, Estate Anna's Retreat/Old Tutu and the Bovoni housing community, according to a Government House release.
James O'Bryan Jr., who chairs the Governor's Abandoned Car and Beautification Task Force, said 27 vehicles were removed from the Bovoni community on Monday. The initiative was undertaken in conjunction with the Police Department and the U.S. Justice Department's Weed and Seed program, he said.
And another 22 vehicles in the area were tagged as "abandoned" and "will be confiscated and impounded later this week if they are not removed by their owners," the release stated.
O'Bryan noted that liens of $250 are placed against the future registration of any vehicle by the persons listed as the last owners of record of abandoned vehicle removed from the streets by the task force.
