Screen_Shot_2014-03-13_at_8.12.38_PMThe Orange Walk Town Council today began working on improving the infrastructure at the East Sports Center located on Aurora Street. While the Council has committed to carrying out the project, what fast tracked the work was receiving a report that the electricity wires at the center had been sabotaged. Whether this was a vindictive act or not is of no concern to the council and has not discouraged their efforts. After being informed of the incident yesterday, Mayor Kevin Bernard says they decided to start the work immediately.

“The electricity here at the East sport centre apparently has been sabotage, somebody had cut the wires and what we want to do is to bring back life to East Sport Centre, I believe that we would need to bring back sports in this area this is a public space and so we, the council decided that we will invest here at the East Sport Centre Park, so what we are doing right now is reinstall and run back the electricity and so that we can have lighting here at the East Sport Centre and we can have basketball and other activities here at the East Sport Centre.”

The council is investing up to five hundred dollars in the work at the East Sports Center. Mayor Bernard says that while the issue surrounding the land title of the area is yet to be settled, they will work to keep their commitment to the people of Orange Walk East and that is to improve the center and make it available to young people in and around the area.
