A 2014 to 2015 liquor license board meeting was held on Monday of this week at the Center for Employment Training in San Ignacio Town. At this special meeting, bar owners and liquor sellers had an opportunity to share their concerns regarding other bar owners or on why their operations should remain in business.

Administrator of the San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town Board Mrs. Karen Fernandez informed the bar owners on the requirement to pay the Town Council garbage, trade license and Liquor license fees as well as property tax. Fernandez reported that property tax arrears to the San Ignacio and Santa Elena Town Council now stand at one million dollars.

The operations of bar owners and liquor consumption has in the past been the subject of frequent discussions within the People’s Coalition of Cayo PCC, which is a police and citizen group working towards the reduction of crime. Also, the recent brawl at a bar at the Cayo Welcome Center that has gone viral on You Tube as well as the recent death of a minor at the hands of another minor in San Ignacio Town has brought the operation of liquor license holders under focus.
