Mayor Green and Town Clerk Sooba at odds once again over tax evasion allegation – 15th May 2013

shot0010Georgetown’s chief citizen, Mayor  Hamilton Green and his Town Clerk Carol Sooba are at odds once again, this time it has to do with an allegation of tax evasion.

It is alleged that Mayor Green sought to write off millions of dollars in property taxes owed by his wife on a property on Mandela Avenue.

Mayor Green at a press conference on Tuesday said the tax evasion issue seemed to have been deliberately blown out of proportion.

He is calling for a tax rating appeal panel to address the concerns of property owners regarding their valuation.

Deputy Mayor Patricia Chase-Green  speaking on the issue said the Town Clerk has overstepped her boundaries.

The Mayor and Councilors  walked out of the last statutory meeting as they expressed their disgust over the attitude of the Town Clerk.
