By BBN Staff: The Belize City Council has just passed a resolution which will reduce the burden of taxi operators.
Former Belize City Mayor, Darrel Bradley, and former City Administrator, Candice Miller, had instituted a charge of $20 monthly as service fees for 38 taxi union operators in Belize City.
New Mayor, Bernard Wagner, and his council have cut that fee in half with immediate effect.
And so as of today, taxi operators will only be allowed to pay $10 monthly for their service fee.
This service fee is in accordance with the Trade License Act which is required for all taxi operators.
Sources within the council told BBN that this move is a part of the council’s manifesto of “putting people before projects.”
