Most voters want MC

A majority of online poll takers believe MC Restoration should continue cleaning up Grand Cayman.

There were 115 votes, or 61.8 per cent, in favour of the cleanup company continuing its work.

57 people, or 30.6 per cent, said no and 14 people, or 7.5 per cent, said they weren’t sure.

MC Restoration was told to cease its hurricane debris processing efforts on 9 May.

After the 11 May general election, the administration said it wanted to assess the entire situation to ensure government was getting good value for money in any debris clean-up contract.

A special report of the Auditor General completed last March concluded government did get good value for money on the contract with MC Restoration.

MC Restoration owner Tom Moffitt has indicated that if a decision is not made soon, the company would be forced to ship its specialised equipment back to the United States to be put to use there.

Following are comments from those taking part in the poll and commenting:

‘I think they did a terrific job,’ one poll taker wrote when voting yes.

Another voting yes said ‘much debris still remains’ and still another said ‘ASAP, then leave.’

Those voting no and commenting said:

‘Do we know for sure who MC Restoration is?

‘A local company should do the rest of the cleaning up.’

And finally, ‘have them refund outrageous charges for clearance.’
