The Minister of Transportation, Area Representative, Mayor, Town Board,
Traffic Committee, Transport Office have all agreed on the importance of a
complete "Re-Registration" census of all vehicles on the island.
Our Mayor, Elsa Paz, met with me yesterday and is willing to provide the
Transport Wardens, and secretarial help once this is planned and scheduled.
This is vital to be able to begin to limit size and number of vehicles on
There is much to be done to actually have this happen.
The Chamber has offered to provide the location, cost of census stickers,
taxi numbering labels, computer software, and money for extra manpower.
We desperately need:
1- Someone who knows Microsoft Access, and is willing to create a program
that will compile the data required on a vehicle title. Please contact me at[email protected]
2- Someone with knowledge of getting non-removable labels (the kind used on
license plates that cannot be torn off and re-used).
3- Money for:
Buying the stickers for the re-registration.
Buying the stickers for taxi numbering and identification.
Furnishing a "Permit Title Certificate" that will permanently remain
with the owner.
Paying off-duty Policemen, Transportation Officers, Traffic Wardens to
perform inspections and recording.
Estimates of cost range from $5,000 to $7,000. Please note on
your check that it is for the "Census", so that it will be accounted for and
used for that purpose only.
For the many of you that have told me that the government should pay for
this, I agree. But anyone with any sense knows that it will only happen here
if we finance it, and help do it. So it is time for you to decide if you
really want to be a part of actually getting something done, or just want to
continue to sit back and gripe.
Please help us. Join the Chamber. Support our efforts.
