    I say audit first, find out where the money went.

    If money is missing, maybe it can be traced and recovered, and used to pay the bills it was meant to pay.

    TRANSPARENCY! These fools work for us, not the other way around!

    makes no sense, people will start using way less just so they don’t pay more. besides raising rates is just simply to raise their profit margins. i just dont get how you can be bankrupt and make a profit at the same time???? how dat possible?

    i don’t agree first of all, it’s not my fault if they went bankrupt or if they fail to make a good profit. i’ve been paying my portion which is my light bill and so let them face the reality who took the money or how was it spent unwisely. i don’t agree at all. i won’t pay more high rate because of mismanagement in their company. i’ll rather change to solar system which is very cheap and more affordable in the long run plus envirmentaly good.

    Why should the Belizean people suffer for mismanagement at BEL?Why not garnish Lynn Young’s pay to cover some of their expenses?

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Our follow Belizeans pay for the service, not interruptions…so because the company mismanages its funds, you expect the Belizean public to pay MORE than the already outrageous prices they pay now? What a joke!
