This afternoon the Belize City Council officially inaugurated its new Sanitation and Works Department building located at mile four and a half on the Western Highway. Built at a cost of approximately three hundred thousand dollars, the new structure will provide the services formerly available at the CITCO Pound Yard compound on Cemetery Road.

“Today is a testament of our commitment to you to do the right thing to end corruption. The pound yard compound was valued for over three million dollars. It was sold by the P.U.P City Council to the Novelo brothers for under one point two million dollars. But on the books at City Hall the P.U.P City Council only collected a hundred and thirty-nine thousand dollars. As promised to the Belizean people, we are pursing legal action against them to collect back your money. This was your land, your money; there will be no more sales of your city council buildings and properties.”

The office will open to the public on Monday morning. The building was built to withstand a category four hurricane. Jacqueline Godwin for News Five.

City engineer Robert Allen supervised the project and the construction work was done Javier Gutierrez.
