Tinian Projects Moving Forward

 

Renovation & Rehab of Tinian Municipal Buildings

 

Mayor Joey P. San Nicolas & the Tinian leadership have worked together to push the Renovation & Rehabilitation of Tinian Municipal Buildings project forward. With the support of the Honorable Governor Ralph Torres, CIP, CDA, and other government agencies with funding coming from PL 17-8 Bond money, the project is well on its way. As soon as the contract is finalized, the shovel will hit the ground and the Municipality of Tinian & Aguiguan will see renovation and rehabilitation work on the Tinian Farmer’s Market Building, the Tinian Youth Center, and the Little League Facility. Upon execution of the contract, the contractor will complete the project within 240 calendar days.

 

This move forward is only the beginning for the Municipality and  furthermore emphasizes Mayor San Nicolas’s and the Tinian Leadership’s commitment to projects that will improve public services for the people of Tinian. In this case, our residents will see work on municipal buildings that will assist our local farmers and much needed programs for our youth.

 

“I am proud of this work and the project that will begin. I want our people of Tinian to know that we will continue to push this project and other projects that will benefit our people as well as boost our economy,” said Mayor San Nicolas

 

Funding for TSA & CBP Facilities at Tinian International Airport

 

With reports of potentially four investors expressing interest in providing direct flights to the Tinian International Airport, Director Kimberlyn King-Hinds (Tinian CPA Board member) through her motion during a recent CPA Board meeting and the support of the CPA Board, approved $1.5 million from CPA funds for the design and construction of a TSA and CBP counter  at  the  Tinian  International  Airport  facility.    The  amount  was  determined  as initial funding with the potential of a supplemental budget down the line if needed. The TSA and CBP facilities are crucial to ensuring the arrival and departure of direct flights to Tinian.

 

“I want to take this opportunity to extend our sincerest appreciation and Un Sen Dangkulu Na Si Yu’us Ma’ase on behalf of the People of Tinian for this critical step forward towards supporting Tinian’s economy,” said Mayor San Nicolas.

 

 

Si Yu’us Ma’ase, Thank You, and Salamat Po
