Does City Hall have the money to pay Candice Miller?

Before her termination, Miller was placed on suspension, which she has said she will challenge in court. Her termination follows the renewal of her contract at City Hall that was done in September of 2017. That contract saw a significant increase in her annual salary to around ninety thousand dollars. Following her termination, City Hall now owes her a significant amount of money. We asked Deputy Mayor Arnold where this places an already financially challenged City Council.

Oscar Arnold, Deputy Mayor of Belize City: “We inherited a broke council and a broken council but that does not prevent you from making certain decisions that need to be made. She as the City Administrator fully well understands that these things are always budgeted for or should be budgeted for, if the budget is not there we as a responsible council will have to ensure that it’s there. Contract taxes that is withheld that should be paying to the government you as a City Administrator as the finance officer should know that that should be set aside and that money should not be used for other purposes. Paye, money that is held back from employees salaries and wages to be paid in to the government that should be set aside to pay into the government not to be used for something else. So again yes it puts the council in a position but it allows you to save money over the longer run if you take the decision that you need to take right now.”
