An eviction notice posted on the door of the Lieutenant Governor’s Office at the Builders Emporium on St. Thomas claims the V.I. government has been late on rental payments for 12 years, and since October has cut its rental payments by half.

ST. THOMAS — The lieutenant governor’s Estate Thomas landlord is tired of receiving late rent, and is now on the verge of kicking the government out.

The notice further states the government has arbitrarily cut its rental payments by half since October.
