Last week the Financial Secretary of Belize, Joseph Waight issued a memorandum to Chief Executive Officers, Heads of Departments and Accounting officers ordering the enforcement of the policies governing usage of all government vehicles. In that communique the Fin Sec advises that effective September 1st all vehicles, except those authorized for twenty-four hours use, should be garaged at the end of each day, on weekends and on public and bank holidays at a secure designated location.
Well it appears that the memo was not taken seriously by certain government workers. Over the weekend a video was leaked on social media starring two San Ignacio/Santa Elena Town council employees sleeping inside a white pickup truck, bearing Mayoral license plates, on the side of San Felipe road, seemingly intoxicated.
As seen on the video the white Great Wall pickup truck was improperly parked with half the vehicle on the road.
Information reaching our news room indicate that the two senior employees were sent on official duties on Saturday to repair the Council’s roller, but after completing their work, chose to head to La Union, a small Mexican community located along the Rio Hondo for a day of fun.
Information is that the two men will be reprimanded for insubordination and inadequate behavior following the incident and have been suspended for 2 weeks without pay.
