CitCo’s Third Piece of Equipment Still Missing

Bernard Wagner

Still missing from the Belize City Council’s Works Department is the John Deere tractor which was purchased for fifty-four thousand dollars. As we reported in August, an internal audit into the Works Department revealed that the tractor, an eighty-six thousand dollars Caterpillar bulldozer and a thirty thousand dollars flatbed trailer were not delivered to the City Council. The audit pointed to Port Loyola Area Representative, Minister Anthony ‘Boots’ Martinez who managed to quickly locate the Caterpillar bulldozer and the flatbed trailer. The minister denied that he took possession of the equipment. The council, however, has yet to be in possession of the tractor which is somewhere in Blackman Eddy. According to Mayor Bernard Wagner, the council is expected to receive the tractor soon.

“It was supposed to have located it. It was supposed to have been brought back to the council this past weekend and I am not certain if that worked out. I think it was in Blackman Eddy. For some reason it found its way to Blackman Eddy and for some reason it will find its way back to the council.”

“So it was in someone’s custody?”

 

Bernard Wagner

“Yes”.

 

Reporter

“So will there be a report by the council?”

 

Bernard Wagner

“We will be providing a report and if there are any criminal charges we will be pursuing it.”

 

Reporter

“The last information I got which was last week was that there will be a missing bobcat report which does not suggest that a crime was committed since it is only missing and not stolen.”

 

Bernard Wagner

“That triggered the other events.”
