Casino control commission must be restructured, says USVI Senator

ST THOMAS, USVI – Senator Kenneth L. Gittens will introduce a measure to restructure the Casino Control Commission, to include eliminating salaried positions for Commissioners.

Senator Gittens’ legislation calls for Casino Control Commissioners to be paid a stipend for their attendance at meetings as opposed to holding full-time salaried positions at the Commission as they do presently.

“This is an important position and Commissioners should be compensated for their efforts, but the current model has not been proven necessary or especially effective,” Senator Gittens said.

Commissioners are paid more than $100,000 annually, plus the added cost of benefits, travel and other perks. Senator Gittens proposes paying Commissioners $500 per official meeting, not to exceed $10,000 annually and relying on Commission staff to execute day to day operations. According to Senator Gittens, Commissioners will retain responsibility for approving all license, registration, certificate and permit applications. They will also still be responsible for voting on other matters of importance.
