In September of last year, viewers may recall a decision was handed down on the matter in the Supreme Court of Belize in favor of Denny Grijalva’s De’Mars Stone Company for the Orange Walk Town Council to pay for past works done. Viewers will note that Grijalva filed a lawsuit against the Town Council after Mayor Kevin Bernard made the decision in 2012 to not honor a payment owed to the company.  And while the Court’s decision was in favor of Grijalva, we asked the Mayor about this financial burden that keeps haunting the council. Here’s what he told us today.

“I recently check with our attorney and they say that they are still finalizing an arrangement with De’Mars Stone Company lawyers so at this point we don’t have any really significantly but all what I can tell you is that we cannot afford any huge payment because we have a plan of work to do in the next three years and we expect to continue those work we will not let any major debt hinder us, we have worked over the past three years with huge debt burdens this one is just another and we will overcome that too but at the end of the day we will continue to deliver the promises for our people so with the DeMar’s Stone Company issue we are prepared to continue to negotiate and like I said whatever payment plan our attorneys can come up with we will best finds ways how to deal with it and address that matter.”

The amount owed is just over eighty thousand dollars.  Grijalva’s claim was for works done by his company on Benque Viejo, Cotton and Hope Streets.
