By BBN Staff: Today the Belize City council officially terminated City Administrator Candice Miller.
Two weeks ago she had met with Mayor Bernard Wagner and his Councilors to respond to the dereliction of duty charges against her.
In the case of a $25,00 interest free loan to Enrique Carballo, she claimed that she did everything to recover those monies.
According to her, Mayor Darrel Bradley, had provided an extension to the loan given in February 2017.
To date payments have not been made.
In the case of the million dollar default judgement awarded to the Belize Waste Control, Miller said she brought it to the Mayor’s attention.
However, she conceded she did not do so in writing.
This prevented the council from filing a defense.
Finally in the almost $60,000 payment to Gilbert Franklin, which almost took effect on March 8, Miller claimed that there was no rush and that all was above board.
According to Mayor Bernard Wagner, the council’s works manager revealed that the value of the works done was almost $20,000 less than the sum paid.
Mayor Wagner closed by explaining that Miller failed to protect the interest and resources of the city
His councilors agreed.
