By BBN Staff: In San Antonio Village, Cayo District, the UDP lost the village council elections to the PUP in July of this year. Now the  PUP council is seeking the public’s assistance to install its new water board.

According to a statement issued by the village council, the current area representative, Rene Montero has submitted the names of the remaining 5 members of his choice without consultation of the villagers or village council.

Therefore, the council is calling all villagers of San Antonio to a meeting ( to be announced) since they were given 7 days to submit their feedback.

The Belize Village Council ACT notes that:

The Minister may appoint in each village or community established under  Part  II  of  this  Act,  a  Village  Water  Board,  consisting  of  the  members specified in section 43B(2) of this Act, and having the powers, and performing the functions, set out in this:

Act.43B–(1)  Each  Village  Water  Board  (hereinafter  referred  to  as  “the  Board”) shall consist of seven persons.

(2)    The members of the Board shall be,

(a)the Chairperson of the Village Council;

 (b)a  member  of  the  Village  Council  nominated  by  the  Village Council;

(c)five  other  members  appointed  by  the  Minister  after  consultation with,

(i)the   Area   Representative   of   the   Electoral   Division wherein the village is situated; and

(ii)the Village Council for that village.

  “ We believe that this issue is of great importance to all villagers. The area representative has submitted the names of the remaining 5 members of his choice without consulting the villagers and the village council. Let us come together to stop this blatant violation of the people’s decision,” the statement expressed.
