CitCo’s Part Payment for Damages to Pier One Facility

Bernard Wagner

The ten-year lease to principal shareholder of Pier One, Joseph Kee, speaks to the payment of three hundred and fifty dollars monthly for rent of the overwater structure. Mayor Bernard Wagner also disclosed today that the previous U.D.P. administration paid sixteen thousand dollars to repair damages to the structure as a result of Hurricane Earl. That, Wagner says, was in contravention to the contract which clearly states that the council was not liable. It is also reported that a former councillor is linked to the bar.

“I’ll go on record with this. Within their current lease agreement, there is an obligation in there which speaks to the fact that the council will not be responsible for any damages to the facility. But we have record and I have black and white and when I speak, I speak specifically on black and white. We have record where after hurricane earl, the U.D.P. City Council chose to foot half the bill for the hurricane earl damages on the facility repairs. So we served as an insurance company—the City Council.”

“Was that only for Pier One?”

 

Bernard Wagner

“Only for Pier One. The damage was thirty-three thousand; the council foot sixteen thousand and I have black and white. When I speak, I speak black and white and these are the type of situation and these are the type when we have public officials operating without integrity and with clearly corruption at the centre of it.”

    We all know that it was Joseph Kee and Dion Leslie. Same Dion that Darryl supported against Phillip during UDP City Council Convention.
