In order to encourage defaulting property owners to fulfil their civic responsibility of paying their property taxes, the Mayor and City Council (M&CC) of Georgetown has introduced an amnesty initiative which will see taxpayers being relieved of accumulated interest.However this innovative service, according to Public Relations Officer, Royston King, will only be available until the last day of this month.King said residents can access the service through the municipal entity’s Treasury Department, as soon as today, as the requisite arrangements have already been put in place.“The Mayor and City Council is urging residents to take full advantage of the new scheme now,Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale, bearing in mind that it is only available for a limited time and is being done in their interest,” King pointed out.He related to this newspaper on Tuesday that the measure was put in place in recognition of the fact that several residents are not financially able to meet their obligation to pay up their taxes,Jerseys NFL China, which are amplified by the accumulated interest.It was just a few months ago that Acting Town Clerk, Yonette Pluck-Cort,Cheap Jerseys From China, had speculated that the municipality would have been able to recover from its protracted financial difficulties once matters that are before the courts yield the expected results.“We have been able to settle with some of the persons who we had taken to court before,Cheap World Cup Jerseys 2018, and we have been stepping up our drive with the assistance of the City Constabulary,Cheap NBA Jerseys Wholesale, which has been involved in getting errant taxpayers to come forward and make their payments,” Pluck-Cort had told media operatives.She had revealed that the municipality had commenced serving demand notices – so persons would know they are in default – and had urged them to visit the Treasury Department to make their payments.Even then the municipality, according to the acting Town Clerk, was willing to work out agreements with residents who were in arrears and were unable to make payments.Residents have over the years been advised that they could make yearly payments or are afforded the option to make payments on a quarterly basis and not be in default.But according to King, residents have been taking advantage of the arrangements in place thus the need for the even more innovative measure to encourage payment.The collection of property taxes, according to King, represents about 80 percent of the municipal revenue base which is in fact below the requisite amount needed to manage the municipality optimally.King revealed that the failure on the part of residents to pay up what they owe, has left the municipality yet incapable of paying waste disposal contractors – Cevons Waste Management Inc. and Puran Brothers Waste Disposal Service – a whopping $75 M. The municipality is indebted to the contractors as it has not been able to pay them for their services for the past three months.The contractors since last week withdrew their service from the municipality, a development which had caused the city entity to engage an alternative plan to keep sections of Central Georgetown in an acceptable state.And since the plan is not extended to the outer reaches of the city, the municipality had advised residents that they could transport their own refuse to the Le Repentir dumpsite.However,Nike Air Max Ale, as at Tuesday, King said that the municipality through its Solid Waste Management Director, Hubert Urlin, had discovered that some residents had commenced dumping their refuse indiscriminately. King stressed that the municipality is very concerned about this development and is urging residents to desist from such unethical practices.“In spite of our own tardiness to fulfil our mandate we are still dependent on residents to help keep the city clean,” King asserted. He noted that the municipality is working diligently to garner the needed funds, thereby boosting its ability to maintain the state of the city.
