That was a very loud and stormy meeting at the City Council of Zakynthos. The fact that mayor Stelios Bozikis had used aero-photographs for the calculation of property areas turned the meeting into a battlefield. On the agenda of the meeting was a discussion about this issue and an attempt to find a solution. The residents got angry claiming that measurement and demanded municipality fees were much to high than in reality. Further they claimed that due to ‘inflated’ measurement they had to pay very high emergency property tax. The city council hall was full of people, while many residents had gathered outside to hear the decision.
However the meeting that lasted three hours did not end with any result as eggs, yogurt and coffee were been hurled against the major in regular intervals.
The mayor claimed that “certain local interests” were behind the attacks and denounced that certain local businessmen were trying to hide thousands of square meters of land or property in their declarations just to pay less municipality fees.
Needless to say that the meeting turned also in a protest against the emergency property tax…
