Infrastructure Plans for Belize City in 2022

Bernard Wagner

With tax payers owing the council approximately twenty-one million dollars, Mayor Bernard Wagner says that City Hall needs to collect those monies so that it can carry out its mandate of fixing streets. With an expected increase in revenue flows, Mayor Wagner says that for 2022, residents can expect more infrastructure works along arteries.

“We have some plans and it all depends on how we are able to work out some of the financial innovation that we do have with the Ministry of Finance. We are looking at those receivables that are owed to us and we are working along with the Ministry of Finance to see how we can jumpstart that in the collection of that, even if we do some sort of what you call selling off those receivables at discounted prices and then retrieving those funds upfront. That is an option we are looking at to really cure and bring down that twenty-one million dollar receivables. So if that pans out, then you certainly be seeing some massive infrastructure works – not only on the front streets, but more in the back streets areas. So that’s the core. We want to do massive infrastructure work in the city.”
