    Their moving expenses should be covered if they are being forced to relocate. Before compensation for losses is discussed, shouldn’t we at least know where they intend to put them, what type of foot traffic they can expect which will determine the amount of business they can reasonably expect to generate. Having signs posted informing current customers of their new location can soften the impact & ease the transition.

    No-they were squatters in the first place-to pay now will encourage all to do it in hopes of getting some cheese. They are on crown land at the pleasure of the City/GOB.their privilege is up and they should be refunded their lease-but like any other landowner, they can send their tenant out.

    Of course they should be fully compensated, this is just another of BEL’s usual vindictive moves against the poor people of Belize due to losing their case against the PUC, why all of a sudden the health hazard? Maybe they should also be compensated for the harm already caused; the city council should not encourage them in their vindictive behavior. Be ready for more black outs. Remember, My Legacy B 4 My People.

    The Mahogany Street Vendors should be fully compensated because of BEL’s lack of enforcement. I do agree that it is a health hazard, but the situation could have been averted if BEL had taken the proper measures in the first place.

    The Mahogany Street Vendors should be fully compensated because of BEL’s lack of PROPER PLANNING AND GROSS INCOMPETENCE.

    they squatted illegally in a place initially reserved BECAUSE of the power-lines above. the culprit here is Citco who KNEW these people were not suppose to be there and YET, went ahead and charged them for operating a business there. Citco should refund all $$ charged to these people so they can relocate. the area was left as a reserve from the initial stage because of the overhead lines…..Citco turn around and chanced the people and took advantage of their ignorance.
