Residents from the San Mateo Sub-division on North Ambergris Caye will be jumping for joy after learning that the San Pedro Town Council received a generous donation from Bay Trust International Ltd. for the maintenance and work on the streets of San Mateo.
Minister of Tourism – Hon. Manuel Heredia Jr., Mayor Daniel Guerrero, Deputy Mayor Severo Guerrero Jr., and councilors were on hand to receive a grand check of $50,000US to be strictly used for the development of San Mateo roads.
“We are very grateful to Mr. Glen Wilson of Bay Trust International Ltd. for this donation,” stated Mayor Daniel Guerrero to Ambergris Today. “The council has been working arduously in having this street in San Mateo in good accessible conditions and Mr. Glen saw this and decided to help with a good amount of funds towards this project.”
According to Mayor Guerrero, the monies will be use solely for the purchasing of material which should amount to four barges full of hard core. The Town Council will be in charge of the labor, maintenance and up-keep of the streets.
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr. Glen for this donation and also encourage other investors to contribute to the beautification of the island,” stated Mayor Guerrero. He also stated that they should receive help from UNICEF for the water and sewer in San Mateo.
