New District Commissioner makes official visit to Little Cayman

Newly appointed District Commissioner Ernie Scott recently made his first official visit to Little Cayman accompanied by members of his management team.

First stop on the visit was the District Office to meet the District Officer Larry Foster to review projects, followed by stops at the Little Cayman Education Service, the Public Works compound/hurricane shelter, Police Station, Fire Service, Edward Bodden airfield and terminal to meet other civil servants and an island tour.

The group also held a public meeting with a group of residents to hear their concerns firsthand, stated a press release.

In addressing the residents, Mr. Scott revealed plans for a stronger customs and Immigration presence in the near future, and illuminated plans for upgrades to the terminal building, road improvements and additional signage around the island.

‘Overall the community was excited to hear these new plans’ Mr. Scott said. He also pledged to make quarterly official visits to the island.

‘As the District Commissioner of the Sister Islands I consider the concerns of Little Cayman to be as important as those in Cayman Brac. I look forward to increasing the lines of communication between my office and Little Cayman in order to serve the needs of residents here better.’

Accompanying Mr. Scott were Deputy Collector of Customs, Dave Tatum; Public Works Department Works Manager, Noli Cruz; Assistant Chief Immigration Officer, Roger Scott; Senior Treasury Accountant, Marlyn Scott; and Administrative Officer, Wanda Tatum.
