Mayor Daniel Guerrero is committed to working on improving the streets of San Pedro, La Isla Bonita. He has put emphasis is maintaining our island clean and along with the help of his foramens he has been working on fixing up the streets of our island.
Last month the road on North Ambergris Caye was being fixed up with hard core and sand from the foot of the bridge all the way to Grand Caribe. In the San Juan Area plastic culverts were placed for proper drainage so that the roads are not flooded during this rainy season and streets are passable. (Click Here for Story)
