Deputy Mayor says the Town Clerk has no authority to send City Hall PRO on leave
Deputy Mayor Patricia Chase-Greene said that the Town Clerk does not have the authority to send any officer of the council on leave. She said that she is still puzzled by Town Clerk Carol Sooba’s decision and the law that gives her such authority to send Public Relations Officer Royston King ,on leave.
King remains on the job and Chase-Greene said if the Town Clerk has any objection to King’s performance on duty, there are procedures that she has to follow.
Greene said that there is a personnel and training committee that deals with matters of this nature.
Royston King was instructed to proceed on leave last Monday, but that the council following its statutory meeting overruled the decision.
