ST. THOMAS — V.I. lawmakers voted to subpoena the leadership of the Waste Management Authority on Friday after agency heads failed to appear at a scheduled committee hearing on St. Thomas.

Senate Majority Leader Marvin Blyden, who chairs the Housing, Transportation and Infrastructure/Telecommunications Committee, said he was “truly disappointed” in the agency’s absence, given the importance of the agency’s role and the two-week notice he gave to its leadership.
