In an interesting compromise, several route taxi operators in Montego Bay
have decided to pay a fee of $100 per day to the St James Parish
Council to compensate for the revenue the council lost from its metered parking system when taxi operators got the green light to use major thoroughfares as taxi stands.
During a press briefing following the recent monthly meeting of the St James Parish Council
, Montego Bay's
mayor, Glendon Harris, announced the compromise, which, he
said, would keep taxi operators in check while allowing the municipality to recoup its loss of earnings.
