That’s because the VI Waste Management Authority plans to store equipment and materials for a wastewater pumping station they’ll build near the public bathrooms, according to the St. John Source.
The US Department of the Interior will pay the cost of the project, estimated at $1.1 to $1.2 million.
What the Inquiring Iguana finds most interesting about the project is the Source’s report that “the Port Authority, which owns the parking lot, will … have to find another location for Patrick’s bar, which sits in the parking lot.”
While many people thought Patrick’s was only temporary, it’s been there 10 years or more.
And now, the Source indicates, the business will be accommodated - even though its removal from public property could add half a dozen or more critically-needed parking spaces.
