Property tax will keep Local Government accountable to the people

Property tax is an attempt to keep Regional corporations accountable to the people.

This is the opinion of former Minister in the Ministry of Finance, Mariano Browne.

He made the comment while speaking on Power 102 Digital’s Power Breakfast Show.

Income gained from property tax will be allocated to Regional Corporations.

Mr Browne said it is hoped that burgesses, as a result, will be greater invested in how the money is spent as the Corporations are directly responsible for addressing many of the issues in communities.

He questioned however if this will be sufficient to run the business of regional corporations

Mr Browne added that despite this change, there is still a need for local Government reform.
