He explained that steps will be taken to bring this in line with the 21st century.He noted that, unfortunately, in the case of Georgetown and many of the other Councils, rates were being collected, adjudged by an evaluation exercise that was done in 1996.Of course property value has increased significantly since then, the Minister noted.He pointed out that this has resulted in the Councils not being in a position to garner sufficient revenue from a mechanism which is the main component of their revenue base.He explained that if these local organs were dependent on Central Government for subvention, then “it was easier for Central Government to dictate, dominate, and control, and also to manage the country from the centre.”
