Former Mayor of San Ignacio/Santa Elena Urges Current Mayor to Halt Destruction of Macal Green Park
Former Mayor of San Ignacio/Santa Elena and Cayo Northeast Area Representative Orlando Habet is calling on the current mayor to stop the destruction of the Macal Green Park. The area, once littered with scrap metal and old tires, was transformed into a green space by Habet and his then-council in 2003. Habet says that, at that time, the plan for the park did not include any type of construction and was developed as a natural setting of trees, gardens, and streams. However, fast forward to today, and the park now has a concrete platform and is being utilized to host a rodeo event. In an interview with Habet, he told Love News of his concerns, and says he hopes the mayor will listen to his advice.
It just so happens that the current Mayor, Earl Trapp, was on The Morning Show today, and was able to respond to Minister Habet’s concerns. He has coined the criticism as an exaggeration, and an appeal for sympathy votes.
