(Acapulco, ElSur 18 May) The director of Regulations and Events, Iván García Clemente, estimates that about 10,000 Acapulco business owe for two or more years in the payment of their business license. He said that as of June 1, the city will provide discounts of up to 50% for those who come forward to pay the arrears. The administrator said that about 35,000 businesses are duly registered and pay their license fees on time. Of the delinquent businesses, some owe for as many as 5 years. He added that if the push for compliance is successful, then most businesses will have their permits in good form by the end of the first half of 2011. From then on, the city will start imposing fines for businesses out of compliance. The most common infraction that causes a licensed business to be fined, other than failure to pay for the licenses, is operating outside of the hours established for that business.
