Task Force Completes 20-day Abandoned Vehicle Initiative

Sept. 21, 2006 — St. Thomas/Water Island Administrator James A. OBryan, Jr., Chairman of Governor Charles W. Turnbulls Abandoned Vehicle and Beautification Task Force Wednesday released a complied list
of 66 identified abandoned vehicle car owners
resulting from a twenty day September Task Force removal initiative.
OBryan said in total, 93 vehicles were confiscated during a twenty day period; however, 27 owners could not be identified due to the deteriorated condition of the vehicles. The vehicles were removed from the following areas: Estate Charlotte Amalie, Contant, Oswald Harris Court, Caret Bay, Estate Hoffman, Valdimar Hill Drive, Bournefield, Altona, Smith Bay, Lindberg Bay, Estate Tutu, Annas Retreat, Four Corners, Estate Nadir, Griffith Park, Hospital Ground, Red Hook, Frydenhoj, and Hull Bay.
Liens of $250 have been placed against the last registered owners of identified vehicles at the Motor Vehicle Bureau. The government reserves the right to seek the imposition of the minimum $1,000.00 fine per vehicle fine in the Superior Court of the Virgin Islands.
The St. Thomas administrator said in addition to the work of various grass and road maintenance crews sponsored by the task force in conjunction with the Department of Public Works, car removal operations will continue in the Nadir Hill area where an inspection earlier this week uncovered nearly 100 abandoned vehicles. One property owner was cited for violation of the solid waste laws of the Territory and has been given an October 10th appearance date in Superior Court to answer charges of being a repeat and continuous offender of the solid waste laws of the Virgin Islands.
