    This is a start but it needs to be done throughout the island. There are sidewalks we cannot walk on as they are overgrown, weeds, trees & bushes growing out of the road and into the road. If I were a tourist, I would not want to come to an island that is so overgrown.

    We spend millions on advertising our beautiful island and then we seem to lack pride in keeping it neat for our visitors…the sidewalks and road sides are a disgrace in most areas with no care being taken to keeping the weeds cut…in some areas people have to almost be in the middle of the road to be able to walk…how disgusting is this and it seems that for many years now this has been allowed to happen…what’s the plan going forward? thanks…
