Crow-footing CGA’s Assets for Failure to Pay Bills

Marilyn Peters, who has also been with C.G.A. for the past fifteen years as an accounts payable clerk, explains how the creditors visited their offices a few weeks ago enquiring about the management team.  Notwithstanding their absence, they proceeded to place markers on a number of C.G.A. assets in an attempt to recover monies owed to them.  News Five understands that the association owes roughly eighteen thousand dollars to Uno and approximately sixty thousand dollars to Westrac.

“The debt has been, I believe, from around like 2016, we have been owing those invoices and we haven’t been able to commit to the payments and the people have come and asked us to sign promissory notes at the beginning of it and then after that they took out like a lawsuit and we still weren’t able to come up with those payments either.  So a few weeks ago, I just saw some people come and they asked to talk to somebody on management but nobody was here, so then they decided to, you know, put a little marker on the assets that they believe would be able to cover that bill for Uno Petrol.”

“How long have you not been paid and how are you getting by in the absence of a bi-weekly or a monthly salary?”

“Well we are supposed to be paid bi-monthly.  That’s on the fifteenth and the ending of the months and we haven’t received anything yet for October.  I really noh know how I di keep up but I have a son also attending the University of Belize.  So dah noh just about home, I commitments with education with my child and all that, so it’s really been challenging for me because it’s me alone at my home with my two kids.”
