By BBN Staff: BBN has obtained an internal memo sent out to the staff of the Belmopan City Council informing them that their salaries will be cut due to the ongoing economic conditions brought in by COVID-19.
The memo states that employees of the council will only be receiving 80 percent of their salaries for the pay period May 16- May 31.
“Kindly note that the Council is still pending disbursment of 50% salaries for pay periods 30 April, 2020 and 15 May, 2020, as well as the 20% balance due for this pay period,” said Belmopan Mayor Khalid Belisle.
He added that those payments will be made as soon as the council is in a position to do so. The decision to cut salaries as a means of ensuring that staff remain employed is not a situation unique to the Belmopan City Council.
This week, Belize City Council Mayor Bernard Wagner said that regular staff were being paid 75 percent of their salaries, managers were receiving 66 percent, while the Mayor and City Councillors are receiving 50 percent of their salaries.
