The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) building is going through major renovations, most noticeably the front part of the building. The entire front side, which had a picturesque underwater mural, has been re-surfaced with smooth tiles resembling marble, and Grecian style columns now cap the front corners of the building. After weeks of observing workers at the building, and with many questions and concerns about the structure, The San Pedro Sun went in search of answers.

Initial reports are that the renovations of the SPTC building are in connection with Township Day, scheduled for later this year. According to Mayor Daniel Guerrero, the resources being used on the renovations does not affect in any way, the funding of other projects on the island, and there is a key reason for the changes to the building. “If you come to this island and you want to invest, and you see a deteriorated Town Council building and office, automatically you will get discouraged. We need to remember that is the first impression and perception of the building inside and outside is what we want out there. Yes, there are other priorities and we are putting light in San Mateo, in the subdivision areas. The works on our building and offices does not stop us from getting the job done and looking after the island. There have been allegations and negative comments about the renovations; those individuals who have such thoughts, I would like them to be positive and see the benefit of it, that when Township Day comes it will make us the only municipality with a beautiful building and offices to serve the people,” said Guerrero.

It looks nice! I particularly like the bric-a-brac trim along roofline, and the framing on windows.

It would look better in a different location. As the island continues to grow, access and the traffic created along with the limited parking needed by those seeking services provided by the Town Council would be better served if located other than the center of town.

I think it would look better had they did nothing to the TC building,and spent those monies on improvements in San Pedrito and the DFC.

This Administration has spent more on the roads all over the town than any previous Administration
Tons of hardcore and hundreds of hours in labor.
There is still work to be done and it will get done.
This time of year we get a lot of rain and very high tides.

There's nothing wrong with Town Hall being in the center of town. Who's going to foot the bill for land and construction if they move? As far as parking goes much of the parking is taken up by people that park all day long. At some point in time maybe people will realize that the parking should be for their clients, not for them. However the town needs to enforce time limits, mark parking spots on the streets and create a proper parking lot in the back for that to happen.

More excuses about how so much money is being spent for all kinds of needed projects.
How needed do you think fixing the water-filled streets so the kids can get to school is?
Seems to come way down on the list of priorities.

You sound like the local government.

Banana republic.

No more excuses, please.

The continuing actions are those of the aforementioned republic.
It gives me no pleasure to make the reference.

Of course, there’s no corruption or self-serving interests in Belize....

(addendum): ahh, I just picked up on Trackers “interests”.

As I assumed.
