Municipal Tax Amnesty

The Municipal Amnesty Policy was approved to establish and maintain an orderly procedure for ratepayers to receive pardons on a percentage of their tax liability and for the Council to retrieve outstanding taxes in the form of an agreement for the benefit of citizens, organizations and the Council. The COVID 19 pandemic has had a negative economic impact on the citizens of Georgetown. This has unfortunately also affected their ability to perform their lawful and civil responsibility of paying their taxes.

His Worship, The Mayor is interested in paving the way for young people to expand on their natural talents and gifts by opening doors for them to have opportunities to do so. With that said, His Worship today granted both 21-years-old, Mr. Ransford Simon and 19-year-old Mr. Bevan Allicock “Young Professional Artist Award”.
