Can CitCo Meet its Financial Obligations to Pay Compensation & Claims

Bernard Wagner

But as the issue of compensation to the former City Administrator looms over the council, there is still another elephant in the room. A million-dollar claim by Belize Waste Control is pending and the council is nowhere close to addressing it.  Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner sidelined that question, but stuck to the issue that the council is functioning and carrying out its mandate.

 

Bernard Wagner, Belize City Mayor

“Again, we have not even begin to contemplate looking at that matter. Right now we are focusing on whether our case, if we do appeal, will have footing.”

 

Duane Moody

“Sir, but the judge was clear. Contract is a contract is a contract.”

 

Bernard Wagner

“I can’t discuss the case champ. I don’t want you being called on the stand as well as a witness.”

 

Duane Moody

“Sir, but essentially what city residents are questioning is whether the council is able to perform its mandate as well as honour these rulings, these debts, whatever.”

 

Bernard Wagner

“Well we have been meeting our obligations on a monthly basis and again without any sort of financial contribution from G.O.B. and that in itself, in my view, speaks to the prudent manner in which we have been running this council.”
