Wednesday January 31, 2018.

During the past week, some sporadic but heavy showers were recorded over Belize but it appeared as if though the storm dumped most of the rains in ‘Griga.’  This to many of us, is called together weather.  It was indeed together weather but not in the popular sense of the word.

Hands on Mayor, Francis Humphreys and several of the hard working staff of the Dangriga Town Council got together and took to the streets.  With the weather holding up, a relatively dry cold front was ushered in.  The crew, led by Mayor Humphreys, took the opportunity to survey the rain damaged streets and neighborhoods.  Many of the approximately 10 areas of the town took a heavy beating with backed up drains and pot holed streets.  However, four of the most affected areas, Wageirale, First, Second and Third New Sites were priority.

Mayor Humphreys along with Town Administrator Peter Parchue and Works Coordinator Jason Norales were up early on Wednesday supervising the clearing of backed up storm drains.  The drains in the Wageirale area were clogged with pounds of garbage and debris.  To facilitate an easier water flow, a back hoe was on the “grind” clearing the drains connected to the Benguche Canal.  Meanwhile, in First New Site, one of the pothole affected areas, the newly acquired grader was being put to good use.  Several loads of material was being graded down to get the streets back to passable conditions for both pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

In the old adage, “when it rains it pours,” can definitely be applied here.  However, what should also apply is that it takes a good team working together to win.  With Mayor Humphreys at the helm you are getting and continue to get the most experienced, dedicated, productive and progressive team Dangriga has seen in quite a while. Wabarouguon, (moving forward) building on success.
