Town Clerk Carol Sooba maintains that she is empowered to send PRO Royston King on leave
The standoff between the Acting Town Clerk of the city of Georgetown and the PRO Royston King continued as the Town Clerk continues to maintain that she is legally empowered to do so.
Without stating from where her authority derives the Town Clerk says that with the current state City Hall is in she cannot afford to have persons wasting time.
But according to the PRO, the Town Clerk has no such authority as she is claiming.
King says he believes he is being targeted since he has been identified by the council to be appointed as Town Clerk.
After last Friday’s announcement that King has been asked to proceed on leave the Union that represents City Hall workers had put the council on notice that it will be considering industrial action if the decision is not reversed.
