FYI: Senator Craig Barshinger Urges Acting Commissioner Phillips to Take Action
Nov. 4, 2005 – Sen. Craig Barshinger, on Friday, asked Acting
Commissioner George Phillips to promptly investigate a road situation in
Estate Mariendahl, St. Thomas, which could prove dangerous to the
residents of the area if left unattended.
The road in question is on the right of the Lantern Laundry when driving
towards Nadir on the Brookman Road. Due to the heavy rains of recent
years, a portion of the roadway has crumbled leaving a gaping hole right
on the outer edge of a wide corner on the road.
In a letter to Phillips Friday, the senator prompted the acting
commissioner to look into the matter, and to inform him of what was needed
to get the road repaired.
"Action must be taken immediately to avoid a catastrophic situation,"
Barshinger said. "This is the only entrance and exit to the residents
home. If an incident were to occur, large emergency vehicles might have
difficulty to access that road."
