San Pedro's new Health Inspector
Javier Alpuche

The Department of Health has recently acquired the services of Mr. Javier Alpuche as Health Inspector for San Pedro Town. Mr. Alpuche officially assumed the post on Wednesday, October 31st, 2001 replacing Florencio Acosta. During his thirteen years of experience in the service, seven years were spent as the health inspector for Corozal Town. Previous to that, he worked in Belize City and also for short periods of time in Stann Creek, Punta Gorda and San Ignacio.

    As health inspector, Mr. Alpuche's duties, he explained, include overall food sanitation, supervision of ambulant vendors, ensuring that food premises are in good condition and kept clean; basic sanitation (solid or liquid waste); water quality control; inspection of damaged and expired products in retail stores; investigation of complaints regarding health nuisances and establishing an effective rabies control program. Mr. Alpuche mentioned that in the short period of time he has been on the island he has already noticed some areas of concern. He says he will first evaluate the present situation and list possible solutions.

    Mr. Alpuche is married and the father of two sons: one six and the other, three years old. "San Pedro is a very nice place. The people I have met are very friendly and I hope to count on their support to carry out my every day duties. Although the lifestyle here is different than in my hometown, I hope to be able to make a difference here," stated Mr. Alpuche. 

    The San Pedro Sun joins the people of "La Isla Bonita" in welcoming Mr. Javier Alpuche to San Pedro.
