By Aaron Humes: The Ministry of the Public Service and Belmopan City Council have agreed this week on establishing a Public Service Walk of Recognition and Inspiration.
The memorandum of understanding between the sides was signed on August 26 by CEO Dr. Peter Allen and Mayor Khalid Belisle.
The Ministry was forced to cancel the usual Public Service Awards gala due to COVID-19 this year, and hit on the public memorial as a way of recognizing the civil servants, most of whom work in the New Capital. The walkway on the West Ring Road between Belize Bank and Angelus Press (Constitution Drive) and continuing up to the stairs of the National Assembly Building will be used for the purpose.
At the signing, CEO Allen said, “The Ministry of the Public Service appreciates the opportunity to congratulate public officers for their service excellence and to recognize their efforts in these new and innovative ways. This Public Service Walk of Recognition and Inspiration is intended to present another opportunity for this, and to do so in a way which adds also to the beauty and the ambiance of our capital city. Each year, the names of outstanding public officers will be permanently installed on the walkway.”
Mayor Belisle added, “Belmopan, as we know, is the home of public service, and so we believe that it’s only right and fitting that this landmark be placed here in a place of prominence in our city … where it will be easily accessible to public servants, to the general public at large. It is wonderful that you have decided to not only make it a place of recognition but also a place of inspiration for current and future public servants to aspire to having their names placed on this Walk.”
The launch of the Public Service Walk of Recognition and Inspiration is anticipated to coincide with the upcoming September Celebrations.
