Clarendon councillors denounce Contractor General

Clarendon councillors will, at their next meeting, discuss how to register their displeasure with the Contractor General, Dirk Harrison, for his utterance at a function to honour lay magistrates in Clarendon on the weekend.

Harrison, who was the guest speaker, reportedly said he was not comfortable sitting at the same table with the Mayor of May Pen, Scean Barnswell.

Barnswell who is before the courts for breaches of the Contractor-General's Act, reportedly left the function after the Contractor General's comment.

According to Deputy Mayor Uphell Purcell, the Contractor General's comment has triggered disquiet among some councillors who believe it was unwarranted.

Mayor Barnswell is accused of attempting to mislead the contractor general in relation to the construction of 10 shops at the Spaldings Market in Clarendon.
