City Hall Moves to its New Home

City Hall is moving to its new headquarters. The City Council will now be operating at the former commercial centre in the downtown area of the City. Renovations took time and money to convert and equip the building which is now ready to house the Mayor and councillors. The cutting of the ribbon took place this evening. Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner and Former Mayor Darrel Bradley were a part of the event.

“Our new city hall will make things a lot easier for everyone. All of our administrative and service delivery offices are now under one roof. Over 26 thousand square feet of space is the focal point of the building. It has been build to accommodate growth for the next ten to fifteen years and was made possible by a commercial loan of a principal approximately 4.8 million dollars negotiated   with heritage bank in late 2017 by our previous Mayor Bradley and his council. This current council has been tasked to service that debt and we continue to repay at the tune of approximately 71 thousand per month. When we define the project purpose, it was to enrich Belize City by delivering a welcoming space for both our residents and staff. I sincerely believe we accomplished this goal.”

“Now we have a brand new City Hall for the benefit of not the Mayor not the councillors, not only the staff but all of our residents and that is a celebration for all of us this evening to recognize that it is because of every single person in this room; private sector and public sector, central government and local government. Partners hand in hand, former mayor and current mayor, celebrating a joy for the people that we represent.”
