A report of financial irregularity has once again surfaced at the Georgetown Mayor and City Council – 19th Mar 2013
Councillor for the People’s National Congress, Ranwell Jordan, is raising eyebrows over what he calls another step in the wrong direction regarding the stewardship of public funds.
He’s alleging that the Town Clerk, Carol Sooba and other contracted employees who worked on Mash day, were paid against statutory approval.
Jordan told members of the media that it was unprecedented for the Town Clerk to receive an Honorarium for work done on Mash day.
He said this year, council received over six million dollars from the selling of spots to vendors along the Mash route. Some of the money will be paid to workers and the remainder will go to the city’s Treasury.
