Distraught city residents write petition letter to Mayor Bradley and Hon. King

A petition letter signed by some 18 residents of an area near 2 ¼ Miles on the George Price Highway and Diana Dorado Street in Belize City was brought to Amandala today.

The residents wrote the letter to appeal to either Belize City Mayor Darrell Bradley or Lake Independence area representative, Hon. Mark King, to repair or upgrade the streets on which they reside because of the huge potholes and the inconvenience of having to walk through water when it rains.

They complained that they have had to endure the conditions for over 5 years, and that “it has become unhealthy and unsafe not knowing how deep the holes are that you fall into.”

The residents further stated that they would really appreciate the assistance of either the Mayor or the area representative to “alleviate this situation that has become overbearing to all of us as residents of the area.”

Apart from those requests, the 18 residents are also asking that Diana Dorado and Therese Garnett Streets be widened, and that some street lights be put in the area, because they claim that the area is too dark and dangerous.

According to the residents, Eleanor Usher Street, Therese Garnett Street and Sybil Reyes Streets all need lights.

The letter was duplicated and addressed separately to the Mayor and Hon. King.

We received the letter late this evening, so we were not able to contact any of the two elected officials to see if they had also gotten the petition letter.

We are also aware that there are other city residents who are dealing with similar bad conditions.
