Bridge in Dire Need of Repairs

San Pedro is rapidly developing and there is much work to do in order to have the town looking beautiful and having its residents happy. There are several projects that the Town Council is still working on with some problems areas that need to be addressed.

Residents of the Boca del Rio Area, San Mateo and North Ambergris Caye have expressed their concerns about the bridge in the Boca Del Rio Area as it is showing signs of rapid deterioration that could possibly be a safety risk for the daily users of the bridge.

After having checked out the bridge ourselves, we contacted the San Pedro Town Council to see if they were aware of holes and weakening structures on the bridge caused by the corrosive power of the salt air. Deputy Mayor Severo Guerrero explained to Ambergris Today that the Council is aware of the current state of the bridge and that they have placed an order for the steel to repair the problem areas.

Gee!, what if the town clock was moved to the middle of the bridge, oh wait, what if they used the money to fix the bridge and pave some roads rather than build a CROCK. I mean clock.

FYI I have been trying to donate 8 nice hybrid palm trees for San Pedrito Park for about a month and they are too busy to pick them up or maybe lakawana.

Perhaps the SPTC should have considered, I dunno, say a bridge toll, the $ from which collected could go towards the consistent upkeep of the bridge...
