Q & A WITH BRUNO MAGRAS


What will change for residents of
Saint Barth in 2008? That's what
we inquired of Bruno Magras,
president of the COM
of Saint Barth6lemy

Saint Barth Weekly: Bonjour Mister
Magras. Can you indicate what will
change in the lives of residents
under the COM in 2008?
Bruno Magras: You know, without
doubt, that the decrees relative to the
transfer of authority for the two
COM's of Saint Martin and Saint
Barth were issued on December 26,
2007. That means we will progressive-
ly assume all the responsibilities
accorded to us by the law. But rest
assured, other than a few fans of
singer Jacques Dutronc, who are afraid
to put their hands in their pockets,
most people will not experience any
big shocks, even with the application
of new taxes.

What will happen in terms
of new taxes?
Residents will continue to pay what
they pay already, such as import
duties, which have increased from 4%
to 5%, tax on electricity, which has
decreased from 12% to 10%, tax on
fuel, etc. Three new taxes have been
applied: tax on cars (vignette: see
description) in circulation on the
routes; an annual tax on all businesses,
which ranges from a base of 300 euros
plus 100 euros per employee, with a
ceiling of 5,000 euros; and finally an
occupancy tax paid by tourists who
stay in hotels or rental villas. Yet, to be
clear, one must also list in contrast
what the residents would have to pay
if subject to all French taxes, which
they do not have to pay. I'm talking
about wealth tax, income tax, business
tax, inheritance tax, capital gains tax,
real estate tax, professional tax, and
that's not all.

And what about urban development?
Henceforth, the COM will be in
charge of building permits. After the
dossiers have been studied by the serv-
ices of the COM, the executive coun-
cil will make the decision to accept or


Bruno Magras has announced
the signature of new agreements
with services in France
and in Guadeloupe.
refuse a permit. I requested that as to
avoid too much pressure or risk of sus-
picion for any one elected official.
That said, the territorial council will
create a new map for urban develop-
ment to determine which zones are
open for building, and rules that will
apply in those zones. By consequence,
while waiting for these new docu-
ments, certain decisions will be
delayed.

How is the transfer
of authority going?
Everything is happening as expected.
While waiting .-\ici lii!i, to be defi-
nite and complete, certain national
services will continue to work on
behalf of the COM-for example, reg-
istration of automobiles. Last Tuesday,
I met the regional director of the cus-
toms office and we signed an agree-
ment. As the advent of the COM
revoked certain laws, such as the
authorization for customs officials to
collect the tax on fuel, or to control
import duties, we have to rewrite the
rules of the game. On the other hand,
we are planning to evaluate the staff
and their training so that the agents
of the COM are as well qualified as
possible. On January 15, the fiscal
services director and one of his close
associates are expected in Saint
Barth. That is another area where we
have to sign a new agreement for the
control and collection of the budget


for the COM. It is important that
neutral agents handle these controls,
from outside the COM.

What else?
In terms of social welfare and educa-
tion, to avoid an interruption in the
services managed currently by the
Department (Guadeloupe) as far as
social programs are concerned, I wrote
to the president of the Conseil
G6ndral, Jacques Gillot, to ask him to
sign an agreement with the COM,
while waiting until our service is
organized, which should be sooner
than later. Lastly, 2008 will see the
adoption of our own environmental
code, as well as decisions about taxis
and public transportation, the local
matriculation of boats, and most cer-
tainly the transfer of authority for the
fire service.

VIGNETTES FOR CARS
As OF JANUARY 1, 2008
One of the new taxes applied by the
COM of Saint Barth6lemy is an
annual tax on all vehicles, from
scooters to trucks, which went into
effect on January 1, 2008. Proof of
payment of the tax is a vignette, or
sticker, placed on the windshield of
the car.
The tax is based on the size and hor-
sepower of the vehicle; vignettes can
be obtained at the treasury of the
COM, the territorial police or the
civil services office at the Hotel de la
Collectivit6 in Gustavia upon pre-
sentation of the vehicle's registration
card (carte grise) and proof of insu-
rance. All vehicles must have a
vignette by March 31, 2008 at the
latest. Lack of a
vignette after
that date
is sub-
ject to a
fine in

350 Boats In Gustavia On December 31


aint Berth confirmed
its reputation as the
place to be to cele-
brate New Year's Eve for
the world's most beautiful
mega yachts and sailboats,
with 350 boats in the waters
of Gustavia on December
31, including 60 boats more
than 60 meters long.


breaking number of 66
boats arriving on December
30, both at the dock and on
moorings. But once the hol-
idays were over, 120 boats
left the port on the first two
days of January.
The mega-yachts were
among the world's largest,
with Rising Sun at 453',


cial dock for New Year's
Eve, transforming it into a
chic marina for the festivi-
ties.
According to the lists
filled out by the skippers,
there were 3,300 passen-
gers and crew members


aboard the 350 boats in
Gustavia. In addition,
there were an additional
400 passengers that disem-
barked from cruise ships
and another 200 on the fer-
ry boats from Saint Martin
on December 31.


Carnival 2008
Carnival rehearsal takes place every Sunday afternoon in
the streets of Gustavia until Mardi Gras on February 5,
with a different theme for the costumes every week-from
newspaper to black and gold by way of p.i.l i.i.\ and black
and red. The best viewing spot is in front of La Cantina
around 7nm.

at the main dock for the New Year's festivities.


This number has not
increased since 2006 and
for good reason. "We are at
saturation," explains Bruno
Gr6aux, director of the Port
of Gustavia, who has sighed
with relief that the holiday
crush is now behind him
and his staff. The 10 mem-
bers of the port staff were
all on duty during this peri-
od, "with strict instructions
not to get sick," adds
Gr6aux with a smile. An
average of 50 boats arrived
per day between December
26 and 31, with the record-


Octopus at 414', Limitless
at 315', and Princess Mari-
na at 262'. A total of 20
yachts longer than 196'
were cleared for entry into
the harbor by the port staff
during the last few days of
2007. Most of these colos-
sal vessels are obliged to
stay in the outer harbor, as
the berths at the dock are
limited to boats no longer
than 196'. Yet certain
mega yachts-such as
Princess Marina-and a
few smaller ones, were
anchored at the commer-

DIAMOND GENESIS...

25 YEARS IN SAINT BARTH


ack in the 1980's one
of the best places to
get watches and jew-
elry in Saint Barth was a
small store in the Villa Cre-
ole called Kornerupine,
which sold Bi!cliliiig when
they were the Ii 'iici watch
to own. Launched by
Dominique Elie, a French
jeweler and gemologist, the
store opened in 1983 and
was followed in 1991 by
Elie's second store, Dia-
mond Genesis in Gustavia.
"Both stores existed for
three years," he explains.
Today, there is just Dia-
mond Genesis, one of the
leading jewelers on the
island, where one finds a
wide collection from exqui-


site pieces by Van Cleef and "must-have" for everyone
Arpel to watches by who loves our island." The

"And even more inaccessi-

Fond of diamonds, Elie

one-of-a-kind pieces that

24th Annual St Rarth Musir Festival .anuarv 11-21. 2008


Sixty Musicians With A Singular Passion


By what stroke of
magic has our
island been lucky
enough to have ten days of
incredible classical music,
and to have it repeat year
after year without fail, for
the last 24 years? Perhaps
the secret lies in the quali-
ty of the musicians, all
accomplished soloists,
magically united as part of
the big family of the St.
Barth Music Festival. A
family whose members are
dispersed around the
world, but who answer the
call of Frances Debroff,
co-founder and director of
the festival, as well as a
violin player. For this 24th
edition of the festival, 60
musicians arrive from the
US-including Hawaii-
France, Germany, Italy,
Canada and Brazil... Most
of them know each other,
and enjoy playing togeth-
er, at the best level there
is.
For Wednesday's opera
evening, the festival wel-
comes maestro Steven
Mercurio, who has con-
ducted more than 45
operas around the globe,
as well as world-class
orchestras such as the
London Philharmonia or
the Vienna Symphony
Orchestra. On Wednesday
he conducts Puccini's
"Girl of the Golden West,"
an opera which premiered
at the Metropolitan Opera
in New York City in 1910.
Eleven singers and 40
musicians will share the
small "stage" at the
Catholic Church in Lori-
ent, with very little
rehearsal time, yet with a
lot of motivation and zeal.
Among the musicians are

Tim Cobb (right).. rui jns i',J7. 'r '/' -I'r I.. .
the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra in New York City.


Tim Cobb, principal dou-
ble bassist with the Metro-
politan Opera Orchestra,
Robert Langevin, principal
flute with the New York
Philharmonic, Stefano
Canuti, star bassoon play-
er, and Alex Klein, virtu-
oso oboe player, and a
favorite of Daniel Baren-
boim at the Chicago Sym-
phony
What is surprising is that
these artists, some of
whom are paid as much as
$25,000 for a single per-
formance in the real
world, play here for a fee
that is simply symbolic.
And thanks to the work of
an 11-member volunteer
committee (and especially


Ingrid Lehner), housing
was found for every artist,
often in the home of a resi-
dent who enjoys sharing in
this cultural event.
The first concert, on Janu-


ary 11, features the Miro
Quartet-one of the best
string quartets in the
world-with music by
Debussy, Takemitsu, and
Beethoven at the Catholic
Church in Gustavia.
On Saturday, entry is free
to Zion Garden in Saline
for a recital by the best
students of the Suzuki
school, Saint-Barth Har-
mony, followed by a rock
concert by NYCO, with
guest artist Makana, a 27
year-old Hawaiian gui-
tarist, in his first appear-
ance in Saint Barth.
A double jazz concert
closes the festival on Janu-
ary 23, with the John Ellis
Jazz Quintet from New
Orleans.
Other than the opera, jazz,
and an orchestral concert
at 35 euros per person, the
other concerts are just 25
euros. A reasonable price
to pay, insists Frances
Debroff, to hear artists you
usually have to pay at least
$60 to hear.... And from
the back of a large concert
hall!
