A Very Good Idea for Collecting Property Taxes on Ambergris Caye

A loyal Ambergris Daily reader sent in this intriguing idea to ensure the Town Council could greatly increase their property tax collections on Ambergris Caye:

Whenever vehicle owners (golf cart, motor bike, car, Ranger, truck, pickup, you name it) goes in to get the annual renewal of their vehicle permit, their property tax statements are first verified to ensure that the taxes are paid up to date. This would be for ALL of the vehicle owner’s Ambergris Caye properties, not just their primary residence. Then, and only then, would the vehicle permit be renewed.

Can anyone hear the “WHOOSH” of money flying into the Town Council coffers for much needed paving of roads, clean up of trash, fighting of crime and improved services in general here on our island if this idea is implemented?
