Mayor of Belize City, Darrell Bradley has announced that the Belize City Council will be asphalting 8 streets in the Bella Vista area of the city. He says that it comes as part of the council’s public-private sector partnership which in the past has seen 20 percent of streets in the city paved.

Bradley says that in this latest venture there was a meeting with residents of the area where it was agreed that they will be paying their property tax in advance and that money will be used directly to pave the streets on the western side of the community. He said a contractor who lives in the area has agreed to do the work at cost. That cost is amounting to 180 thousand dollars. The work to be done will include the improvement of drains, installation of culverts, rebuilding of driveways and the connection of drains to canals in the area.

While this work will be done by a private contractor, Mayor Bradley added that the council has a tar truck which will be handed over to them by the Interamerican Development Bank’s Flood Mitigation Project pending the completion of upgrading works to house the equipment at the mile 4 works compound of CITCO.  When that is done, the equipment will begin to be fully utilized to pave streets in the city. So far the equipment has been used to pave some portions of streets including Ariel Rosado street in Belama.
