I have noticed in your paper of July 23rd, a notice from Mayor and City Council of Georgetown which identifies delinquent rate payers and a request for them to check with the city treasurer.
Sir, there exist 34 North Road and King Street, 34 Robb and King Streets and 34 King Street.
I am the owner of 34 King Street and save for one year, some years ago when I was abroad; I have always paid my city rates shortly after the presentation of the budget.
Over the years on a few occasions the receiving clerk(s) would claim non receipt of payment; this was always retracted on the production of my receipts. This year when I went to pay for 2009 the claim was made, that I owed for 2008; upon production of receipt #041, I received a courteous apology.
I have paid for the current year and have in my possession receipt #0911222 dated 17th April, 2009. My disappointment is tempered by my knowledge of the way the city’s business is conducted; my anger is assuaged by the receipt of a telephone call from an apologetic young voice identified as Pamela who has agreed to approach her manager to have him accede to my request for a printed retraction. Confirmation of which has not been received.
My hope is for greater efficiency and rapid improvement upon the successful conclusion of the Parliamentary debate and the subsequent implementation of the Local Government Reform Bills.
