Sounds good - since one of the worst places along the road is right beside your theater and onwards for 1/4 mile or so, suggest that you organize the residents and business people in your area and start there?
If people can't pass that area, there is little need for improved roads farther up.

I will grade the road North for free. After these past rains, I give it a "D"

Its nice to see attention turned to the road. To bad the Town Board doesn't feel any responsibility.

Bravo, the spirit of the old Belize many of us moved here to live in. I visited Diane Campbell and her new Indigo development a few months ago with a good friend from Cayo, who grades most of the roads in the Mtn Pine Ridge and that is no easy feat. We didn't understand why the hotels and residents north of the bridge all get together and do it themselves instead of waiting for govt or another Intl conference to get the road graded. Its not expensive if shared and maintained. I would present this to local govt or GOB and ask for gst exemption on the fuel and other costs associated with this. See what BTB and Min of Works will kick in.

We graded the road by the Theater less than two months ago.

However, with all the rain and high water table especially around the theater where the land is filled, it didn't last long.
We will do it again in November once the water level recedes. If we do it now it will be the same in a couple of weeks and the grader is expensive to operate.

If every one wants to contribute for thier portion I can have the grader pass one time and do everything in one shot rather than having to send it up each time for each individual job.

If you want to contact the town board or come to some sort of agreement, we can arrange a contract where I can do it on a regular basis.

That is why I posted this to see what type of interest is there.

Curious.......how much does it cost per hour to operate the grader?

It varies, but it does burn a lot of diesel just to move it.

Then there is the actual work it has to do. If it is a light scraping and resurfacing it will obviously be less that if the potholes are deep and we have to make several passes. The more earth we have to move the more time and diesel it will take.
Plus we have to pay the driver and sideman.

That is why we will come out first and look at the job and give you an estimate. Plus, as I said it will be more economical if we can get everyone together and do it all in one shot.

Sounds very interesting and thanks for not being offended at my comment - you took it in the spirit it was intended.
Will take a look at some bad areas and get back to you with a request for a bid.
