Today, March 5th, the Ministry of Natural Resources issued lease number 3084/2011 for a parcel lot numbered 01193 in block 7 in the San Pedro Registration Section. The lot in question is registered at the San Pedro Town Council property tax section under the property of the Belize Sewer Authority (BWSL) and was transferred to a resident of Orange Walk Town.

The San Pedro Sun received a copy of a Government of Belize issued receipt which shows that Alyssa Tun, a 19 year old of a Juventus Street address in Orange Walk Town, paid $2,530 for the property. On December 15, 2011 the lot was processed and leased-for-purchase the same day. Payment was made on January 9, 2012 as indicated on receipt LSD-OW00047364 for $2,500 and another payment as per receipt number LSD-OW00047365 of $30 for certificate fee. The land in question is located on Laguna Drive in San Pedro Town and is the proposed site for the new BWSL office. The building construction is scheduled to start this year.

According to a source within the Ministry of Natural Resources, the land was taken away from BSWL for none compliance. Records at the San Pedro Town Council indicate that BWSL was exempt from paying property tax because it is considered a Government property.

A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

Proposed BWS Office land sold for 1% its estimated value

Minister Heredia calls BWS land deal “shady”


On March 5th The San Pedro Sun broke the story on our website at www.sanpedrosun.com that the Government of Belize (GOB) had sold Belize Sewer Authority’s (BWSL) land located on Laguna Drive in San Pedro Town for 1% of its estimated value.

The story was later printed in Vol. 22 #10 dated March 8, 2012 where it was reported that there had been no official comment from the Area Representative of Belize Rural South Hon. Manuel Heredia regarding the land sale. The prime land, with parcel number 01193 and valued at $250,000, was sold to 19 year old Alyssa Tun of a Juventus Street address in Orange Walk Town who paid $2,530 for the property.

Last week however, Heredia told The SP Sun that the land deal is “wrong” and “shady“. “I personally feel that it shouldn’t have been done in the first place. It is wrong,” said Heredia adding that “it is my understanding that they are working out something and I am sure that at the end of the day they will cancel the title and give it back to BWSL and make a commitment with the person that bought it.” Heredia said that if the GOB wanted to get rid of the land, the most appropriate thing would have been to give it to the community. When asked if he (Heredia) had spoken to the Minister of Natural Resources (Hon. Gaspar Vega), Heredia said he had been unable to do so and hoped to bring up the matter when they meet during another Cabinet meeting.
