The Belize Water Services Limited (BWSL) has announced an amnesty program aimed at reducing over two million dollars arrears. The program is for customers who have been unable to keep up with their bills because of the pandemic. BWSL is asking customers who owe more than three months in water bills to pay early and receive a rebate of ten percent on their following bill. The program consists of two main components which are an arrears assistance program and an early payment component. According to the Public Relations Managers Haydon Brown there are currently over eight thousand persons who have defaulted in their payments.
The amnesty program expires at the end of May.
