Mayor of Mandeville, Donovan Mitchell a short while ago announced the resignation of Deputy Mayor Ervin Facey of the Spur Tree Division over breaches in the approval procedures at the Manchester Municipal Corporation.

This according to a release from the People’s National Party, outlining that the the resignation follows payment for work in the parish for which a cheque was disbursed before the voucher was approved by the requisite signatories.

The police were reportedly called in by the chief executive officer of the Corporation to investigate the matter.

The mayor also announced that two officers of the Municipal Corporation have tendered their resignations in respect to the same issue.

Mitchell used the opportunity to restate the corporation’s commitment to transparency and says every effort will be made to ensure that the integrity of the Corporation is maintained.
