How Are the Finances of the Belize City Council?

Bernard Wagner

While we had the opportunity of speaking with the Belize City Mayor on Wednesday, we asked him how the City Council’s finances are performing. This comes a year after the reopening of business and citizens’ payments of trade and property taxes at that time were still less than impressive.

“The taxes could be better, of course. We always want to ensure that we get those property taxes. I must say that trade license dues have performed pretty well. We’re close to ninety percent compliance rate with the trade license. The property tax is another story, but we have put in place some discount programs that we hope will drive our residents to comply with the pain of their property taxes.”
