In February of this year construction commenced on the new town hall for the twin towns of Santa Elena and San Ignacio. Under the stewardship of Mayor Earl Trapp the municipality’s offices had to be relocated from an old dilapidated structure to one where they are renting space for 7 thousand dollars per month. While the move was one that was necessary, the intention was always for the town board to have its own home and Mayor Trapp says that new home is nearing completion.

Trapp has explained that the inauguration of the new building will tentatively be on December 6th. Coming at a cost of 1.7 million dollars the building will house the offices of the town board as well as will allow for the municipality to make extra revenue by renting space to other tenants. According to Trapp, projected revenue from the new building is expected to be in the region of 120 thousand dollars per years. He added that the building’s cost which was financed through a loan from the National Bank of Belize is expected to be covered within 4 years.
