March 7, 2005 – Senator Neville A. James, Economic Development, Planning and Environmental Protection Committee chairperson will take testimony on the status of the newly created Waste Management Authority at a committee meeting scheduled for 10 am on Tuesday, March 8, 2005 in the St. Croix Legislative Conference Room.
At the meeting Senator James will delve into the structure and impact of the WMA; how it will affect the functions of the Department of Public Works as well as associated cost and public user fees.
"This is a fact finding meeting and among the questions to be answered is how the creation of the WMA is affecting the functionality of Public Works." Senator James said. "Of critical importance to Virgin Islanders is the upgrading of the sewer system. Without adequate infrastructure we cannot aggressively seek outside investors to invest in hotels and other economic incentives."
Invited testifiers include Winston Adams, VI Waste Management Authority chairman, Deandre Atwell, VI Waste Management Authority chief financial officer, Wayne Callwood, Department of Public Works commissioner, Lynn Millin, Esq., Department of Property and Procurement legal counsel and Sonya Nelthropp, VI Waste Management Authority interim executive director.
