The Point Roberts Taxpayers’ Association has set up an email address to gather public input about issues they can take to local border agencies for resolution.
The association, along with representatives from the voters’ association, the chamber of commerce and the Point Roberts Emergency Preparedness (PREP) committee, make up an ad-hoc border committee that meets with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection port director and staff several times a year.
The committee takes community concerns to the border and in turn brings information back to the community that is disseminates through its membership, the All Point Bulletin, and Point Interface, said taxpayers’ association president Mark Robbins.
“Through this collaboration we have achieved certain tangible improvements at the border,” Robbins said, including extended NEXUS hours in the summer.
The next meeting of the committee and border staff will be May 3, and Robbins invited anyone with concerns to submit them to PRborderQA@gmail.com.
“The more details you provide the better we will be able to represent your issue or concern,” Robbins added.
