City Council Moves Quick to Clean Up after Hurricane Earl

Darrell Bradley

Today, the Belize City Council mobilized immediately after the hurricane and began cleanup efforts in the Old Capital. Debris, trees, zinc from roofs and other objects are littering the streets.  Mayor Darrell Bradley says that with help from the B.D.F., the city will return to normalcy.

“If you could see around City Hall we already have dump trucks, backhoes and our personnel are going around.  One of the things that we are mobilizing through Councilor Phillip Willoughby is a cleanup campaign through Belize City starting along the Southern Foreshore and Regent Street and then going all the way into the Yarborough area and then Caesar Ridge Road and then the Jane Usher Boulevard area. And we are going to be mobilizing trucks, backhoes, personnel, members of the armed services particularly the B.D.F., City Council sanitation officers. But one of the things that we really want to impress upon members of the communities is that we need their assistance in relation to helping with the initially cleanup efforts so that we can bring the city back to normalcy. So that we are asking individuals, if you can—we don’t know your particular situation—but if you can, we are asking you to begin the cleanup work in your yard or in your area. Put out your garbage. We want to ensure that any major trees, anything that poses a threat right now, we are able to clean away and clear and then be able to cart those off.”
