The Belize Coastal Zone Management Authority and Institute in partnership with the Belize City Council recently installed a sign at Conchshell Bay Fishmarket to remind fishermen of the catch and release fishing law which pertains to bonefish, tarpon and permit fish. These 3 species have been protected since 2008 in order to protect marine life and their economic value to the country.
This afternoon, The Belize City Council’s Mayor Bernard Wagner, Deputy Mayor Oscar Arnold and Councillors; alongside Chief Union Representative for Belize City Council Ms. Stephanie Gongora, Finance Director Mrs. Marilyn Ordonez & Human Resources Director Ms. Sharlene Rudon were all present for a meeting with Christian Worker’s Union (CWU) President Mr. Mose Hyde, CWU General Secretary Mr. Floyd Neal and two (2) employees who faced termination that are CWU Members. Both sides expressed their concerns, the Mayor, Deputy and Councillors remained resolved that there will be no reinstatement of the employees that were let go. However, the Council does wish them the best in all their future endeavours.
In the Belize City Council every department plays a crucial role in our functionality. The Special Constable Unit which falls within the Municipal Court is certainly no exception. You see them on the streets patrolling various perimeters and conducting inspections. But today we’ll provide you with a bit more insight into what exactly this Unit covers and how they maintain order within the business community of Belize City.
So in the future, when you see a situation that falls within the command of the Special Constable Unit you can approach and inform our officers as they are always willing to assist.
