PG residents still in uproar about the gas station

PG GAS STATION.00_03_06_10.Still003

Several residents in Punta Gorda Town continue their rejection of the new fuel station being constructed at the entrance of that municipality.  We first reported this story last Thursday when our Toledo Correspondent Paul Mahung brought us interviews with Activist Wil Maheia; a current fuel station owner and an environmentalist.  Mayor Ashton McKenzie had reportedly promised to intervene on the construction but to date he has not fulfilled his commitment, nor has he attended the meetings called by residents.  Speaking on the matter, however, is the UDP Standard Bearer for the area, Dennis Garbutt.  Here is Correspondent Mahung with an update to this story.

Several residents in Punta Gorda Town continue their rejection of the new fuel station being constructed at the entrance of that municipality.  We first reported this story last Thursday when our Toledo Correspondent Paul Mahung brought us interviews with Activist Wil Maheia; a current fuel station owner and an environmentalist.  Mayor Ashton McKenzie had reportedly promised to intervene on the construction but to date he has not fulfilled his commitment, nor has he attended the meetings called by residents.  Speaking on the matter, however, is the UDP Standard Bearer for the area, Dennis Garbutt.  Here is Correspondent Mahung with an update to this story.

Earlier today PG’s Mayor Ashton McKenzie took to social media indicating that the handful of persons who are opposing the gas station does not speak on behalf of the entire town.  He wrote on his Facebook Page, quote, “Punta Gorda has 6,000 plus residents. Yet 25 people claim they speak for the majority. When COVID19 you don’t see them, when back to school you don’t see them. When our young men are killed you don’t see them. Many of whom wouldn’t even bid you the time of the Day. But now they remember the community. Now more than ever they care about Punta Gorda.”  End of quote.  As it pertains to the actual construction, Mayor McKenzie provided a list of facts surrounding the construction.  He noted that the property where the fuel station is being built was owned by Augusto and Susan Mack for over ten years who then disposed of the property to a Chinese businessman for three hundred and seventy five thousand dollars.  The Mayor goes on to note that the while he has not approved any trade license for the proposed business, the owner has provided documents and permits to show that he has satisified the various requirements for construction.  He added that at no time did he agree to go to any meeting.  Perhaps the most alarming statement made by Mayor McKenzie is that there are no existing zoning regulations in Punta Gorda.  Love News has sought comment from the Central Building Authority but our efforts were futile.  We will keep you posted.
