For months, the water taxi company, San Pedro Belize Express has been using the island’s municipal dock without paying any fees to the municipality. As a result, The San Pedro Town Council (SPTC) is unable to collect any fees from them, claiming a monthly loss of thousands of dollars due to the apparent interference of Minister of Tourism and Civil Aviation Honourable Manuel Heredia Jr. SPTC alleges that Heredia advised the water taxi company to refrain from making any payments.

Heredia told The San Pedro Sun, that the trouble has to do with fees not being charged evenly, since San Pedro Belize Express’ boats are not the only ones using the dock. “I have always been in favour of having San Pedro Belize Express pay fees for temporarily using the dock, and I was even in favour of making them pay from the very first time they began using it, some six months ago up to now. But if one gets charged, then the other one needs to pay as well, and so the same deal will need to apply to La Gaviota boat,” said Heredia. He claims that after discussing the idea with Mayor Daniel Guerrero, he received no response.

We dock at the same pier that is being discussed, I tell you that we pay a pretty penny for our boat, not understanding why the owner of this marina isn't charging?
