Back in the day, when your house got cluttered with useless junk, you had a tag sale. All the stuff you weren’t using came out and was sold for a price. You cleared out old junk and brought in a few bucks. There was a feeling of satisfaction after the big clean-out.
The time is right for the Virgin Islands government to consider such a sale. Abandoned government properties have languished for decades. They are a blight on the community and in dangerous condition. As they have aged, nature has taken over, cracking foundations and breaking through roofs.
