By Benjamin Flowers: The Belize City Council is looking out for its staff this week by providing over $89,000 worth of assistance to over 200 staff members affected by Hurricane Lisa, and will be returning all their frozen increments.

Mayor Bernard Wagner explained on Wednesday, that a total of 214 City Council staff will be receiving cheques on Friday.

The staff was placed into categories 1-4 according to the level of impact they suffered from the storm.

“I believe close to 78 will receive $250, another 67 will receive $350…36 will receive $500, and the 16 people that totally lost their house will get $1,200 to help them along,” Wagner said.

Wagner also noted that staff members who had their increments frozen due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will have their increments unfrozen.

“We have been a council that has faced lone crisis. We faced the crisis of stillbirth when we were elected in 2018, when we were doomed to fail but we survived the abortion and we came back and defeated COVID and we came back and defeated [Hurricane] Lisa,” Wagner added.
