Failure on the part of Minister of Local Government, Kellawan Lall, to appoint Royston King as the substantive Town Clerk of the Georgetown Municipality was high on the agenda yesterday when the entity held its statutory meeting at City Hall.The motion for King’s appointment as Town Clerk, was moved by Councilor Ranwell Jordan, who revealed that on February 28 last such a recommendation was made at the level of Council.Yonette Pluck-CortRoyston KingKing is currently acting in the capacity of Public Relations OfficerJordan proposed,Cheap Jerseys Store, yesterday, that King commenced acting in the position of Town Clerk immediately and that Mrs Yonette Pluck-Cort,Wholesale Baseball Jerseys, who is currently acting in the capacity of  Town Clerk forthwith cease acting in the same position and revert to her substantive position of Deputy Town Clerk.“With immediate effect the Deputy Town Clerk should prepare the requisite hand-over/take-over statements of all charters,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, deeds, records and other documents belonging to the Council and see Mr Royston King commence performing the functions of Town Clerk pending his confirmation by the subject minister.”According to Jordan it was following the recommendation of the Commission of Inquiry that the positions of Town Clerk and City Treasurer were emphasised as positions that should be filled.It was against this background, he said, that the Council took a decision to appoint King.  He pointed to the fact that the Council has recommended a qualified and capable young man who has subjected himself to the discipline of work and study.King, according to Jordan,Wholesale Jerseys, has functioned at City Hall for over 25 years and is therefore the most qualified person, since 1987, who has been identified to function as Town Clerk.Given the delay by the Minister to appoint King, Jordan alluded to the fact that several past Town Clerks, including the late Gladstone Fausett and Prince Melville as well as Ms Beulah Williams, were all made to function in the capacity of Town Clerk ahead of the subject Minister’s approval.“Those Town Clerks were put in place by this Council while waiting their official appointment by the Minister…This Council cannot aggravate its responsibility to the citizens of Georgetown. We have gone through serious considerations for the 2011 budget and we need a qualified, no-nonsense person to lead the implementation of that budget; Mr Royston King has been identified by this Council to be that person.”There is need,Cheap NFL Jerseys China, Jordan noted, for the Council to work with stakeholders, including Mr Keith Burrowes and the Implementation Committee to meet already set deadlines.Jordan’s motion was second by Councillor Gwen McGowan which paved the way for deliberation into the matter.  However, ahead of the anticipated debating session, Jordan requested that both the acting Town Clerk and King depart the session in a bid to allow councillors to freely share their views on the matter.Although King’s exist came as fast as his arrival,Wholesale Football Jerseys, Pluck-Cort insisted that it was her place as the acting Town Clerk to remain.  “Since I am still acting in the position of Town Clerk I still have the responsibility to be here. I will sit through…”Her declaration was swiftly supported by Councillor Kamla Devi Ross who pointed out, “We cannot just ask the Town Clerk (ag) to remove because there is no decision for her to be remove by the Minister.”The debate continued with concerns about the legality of the appointment of King and even saw questions being raised about the competence of the acting Town Clerk to perform adequately.At the end of the debate it was the “Ayes” that out-numbered the “Nays.” However Mayor Hamilton Green noted that the Council would perhaps have to consult to determine the validity of the motion in order for it to be deemed tenable.
