Since they took office in 2012 the Orange Walk Town Council has been tackling the issue of streets and drains. Working with the limited resources available the Town Council, managed to pave and upgrade some of the worst streets across the municipality and even cemented some major intersections. But as the old saying goes, “The work never stops and there is always more that needs to get done.”


When it comes to infrastructure, including streets and drains, the council has a set plan to continue improving the town’s infrastructure.
