By Aaron Humes: Belize City Mayor Bernard Wagner has said his Belize City Council will no longer provide tombing services and raise fees for burials, particularly for those who have died from COVID-19.

Mayor Wagner explained that the cost was getting to be too much compared to the revenue the Council collects: we continue to do our part in ensuring that we have the facilities and maintain the facilities, maintaining a cemetery is very expensive and it brings in no revenue to the city, it’s essential a service that you provide and so we have to streamline it and ensure that you’re not losing money so we essentially withdrew ourselves out of the tombing business and we have those undertakers now taking care of that and obviously when you do that the pricing is essentially up to those individuals or companies that do the tombing.”

Prices of between $1,200 and $1,500 have been quoted for the alternate tombing services.
