appThe Orange Walk Town Council has proceeded with its application to the Lands Department for the parcel 2215 known as the Guadalupe Park. Today, representatives of the council attempted to enter that application at the department here in Orange Walk but according to Mayor Kevin Bernard, they were rejected.

“What happen is that it was submitted today but apparently some Mr. Espejo told them that they cannot accept the application and that it has to be submitted personally to the lands commissioner and such they did not accept our application here in Orange Walk Town.”

“Is that standard procedure, were you informed, did you ask, how does that work?”


Kevind Bernad – Mayor of Orange Walk Town


“That is never standard procedures, because as far as I am concern any land application once it is for the Orange Walk jurisdiction goes to the lands department here and they must receive it and then forward it to the ministry in Belmopan and from there they proceed.”

“Is the council going to proceed with what they say or the recommendation that they gave in personally handing it over to him?”


Kevind Bernad – Mayor of Orange Walk Town


“Yes, we will proceed in handing it over, on Monday we will send our representative there to the land department to make sure that the official document is sent and given personally to the commissioner of Lands.”


According to Mayor Bernard, they have not yet approached the Lands Commissioner Wilbert Vallejos to inquire about the incident but will do so as soon as next Monday.
