Limetree Bay Refinery Graduates Basic Operator Training Class

Limetree Bay Terminal

During a ceremony at Limetree Bay Refinery LLC on Friday, Oct. 11, officials of Limetree presented certificates of completion for basic operator training to 19 residents of St. Croix as they train to become refinery process operators.

The graduates completed a rigorous six-week training program and were the second class to graduate from the Basic Operator Training Program at Limetree Bay Refining this year.

In his remarks to the graduates, Bob Weldzius, Limetree Bay Refining senior vice president and general manager, congratulated them on their successful completion of the program. Weldzius said, “The success of the restart can only be accomplished if everyone does their job flawlessly and safely.”

He encouraged the graduates to continue learning by asking questions and being inquisitive. Weldzius reassured them and their families that leadership will ensure that all employees are adequately trained to perform their jobs safely before the facility restarts.

Shouldn’t the VI Government also publish a list of people whose tax refund checks are delinquent? People the government owes. Seems only fair.

It would be nice if this was an actual link and not a screenshot

Here's one that should work for you: ltg.gov.vi/departments/property-tax-delinquency-list/

This would be a good opportunity for current and returning Virgin Islanders to buy homes without a huge mortgage

Nice, let people get robbed by Wapa, high cost of food, but when they can’t pay taxes, sell their homes to some rich statesiders! 🤯🤬

Jane, we just recently received our refund … surprisingly, with interest!

The link does not work.
