With that much damage they will never find the cause unless someone knows what happened.

$10,000 divided by 32-35 children is about $300 (not 3,000) per child. Books, book bags and uniforms easily cost this much.

Fire victims receive funds

After a blazing June 26th fire affected San Pedro, dozens of families, individuals, and businesses were left without basic necessities and commodities. Public donations were raised on Reef Radio/TV via a telethon, amounting to $247,778.77, and on Tuesday, August 9th, the fire victims gathered at the San Pedro Lions Den to receive their relief grant.

The telethon has been called the biggest fundraiser in San Pedro history, and Eiden Salazar of Reef Radio/TV stated that two more donations are still pending, which will allow the figures to increase to $260,000. Since the deadline to collect funds was set for Sunday, July 31st, a final assessment meeting took place to discuss the method and formula of the distribution of money.

Before the disbursement of funds, Salazar clarified to the victims that funds will be distributed among building owners, business owners, and renters. According to Salazar, the fire committee agreed to use the same formula that was used with the Boca del Rio fire that occurred in July 2014. He also mentioned that the assessment revealed a total financial loss of $2.1 million dollars.

“Of course, you see $260,000 and think that is a lot of money. If I lost $10,000, I must receive back $10,000, and that’s not the case. We looked at family by family, and case by case to see what portion to give them, as well as those who own the building. A percentage will also go to those who were renting. We opted to use the same criteria that was used in the Boca del Rio fire,” said Salazar.

Ambergris Caye’s ‘Ground Zero’ zone in recovery

In order for any construction to start at ‘Ground Zero,’ proper approval must be obtained from the Ambergris Caye Local Building Authority (ACLBA). ACLBA’s Fidel Ancona indicated that, three plans for construction have been submitted and all have been approved. These include the new buildings for El Dorado store, Efrain Guerrero and Relmer Arceo. “In order to approve, the authority considers the type of material used to rebuild and tries to get as much setback as possible considering what was there before, and the necessity of the building,” explained Ancona. He further commented that the new buildings to be constructed will be better than the ones before, and all the structures approved so far match with the parameters set for that particular area. In the upcoming weeks he is expecting more plans for the rest of the buildings, which will be carefully analysed before any approval is granted.

In the meantime, workers can be observed working hard in order to meet El Dorado’s deadline. They have moved pretty fast in the past three weeks since they began construction, and the aim is to try and get as much work done before the end of the year. “This is a busy street, very commercial, reconstruction is a must, if we are talking about business,” said one of the construction workers.

As for the other buildings approved, building materials are already arriving at the area, suggesting that more construction might soon begin. The ACLBA is also taking this opportunity to guide the future building plans in order to have a properly distributed and well- planned community.

It is expected that by December of 2016, most of the buildings will be reconstructed.
