Investigate Rose Hall Town Council
The Ministry of Local Government is currently investigating the Georgetown Town Council with much vigour which I fully agree with. But I would like to urge both Ministers Ganga Persaud and Norman Whittaker to do the same with the Rose Hall Town IMC.
As a concern citizen of the town, can the Ministry please explain to us how can the Chairman of the IMC be removed after a no-confidence motion by Councillors four years ago and then be returned in that same position four years after to work with those same Councillors.
I would also like for the Ministers to get the Rose Hall Town IMC to explain to the township how in 2011, they took a decision to disassociate itself from the Rose Hall Town Anniversary Committee and to ban them from any activities of the township anniversary due to alleged corruption and other problems in past events.
A check was made of the newspapers for August to September 2011 of the differences between the IMC and the Committee.
To residents’ surprise, we have learnt that the IMC in 2012 has once again associated itself with this group for the town week celebrations.
I have lived in this township for over 50 years and I can say without doubt that no group exists by the name of the Rose Hall Town Anniversary Group and that it has no record of achievements.
This group is about one man and only comes alive when the month of July arrives in time to raise funds from the town week.
The Ministry and the Town Council owe the residents some answers.
