It’s Time to Clean Up the City’s Garbage

Bernard Wagner

The honeymoon will be short for Wagner and company as the first hundred days of his administration begin. In addition to looking into Council finances and figuring out the fate of the various projects in which the City is embroiled, there is an urgent need, according to the new Mayor, for the City to undergo a massive sanitation campaign. The details of the outstanding contract with Belize Waste Control et al are yet to be worked out, so Wagner is asking City residents and businesses to help do the job.


Bernard Wagner, Mayor-elect, Belize City

“We want to get some quick fixes, and I’m saying to my councilors – some of the quick fixes: we have a dirty City, an unclean City; why not engage the business community, along with the residents, along with students, and we go on a massive clean-up campaign of the City? This wouldn’t bring any significant cost tot eh Council. But we utilize our relationships with the business community and with residents and with students and we sell it, and let them take ownership of this. And certainly if we are able to begin and take off from that aspect, we are able to get our City back to where we can be proud. That is a part of the vision of the Council, to have a clean and safe City. And I believe that within the first hundred days, we can embark on a clean-up campaign of the City, with the business community and the residents and students.”
