There are concerns about an electrical vehicle charging port, installed at tax payers expense at the St. Ann Municipal Corporation, to accommodate the personal vehicle of the Mayor of St. Ann’s Bay, Michael Belnavis.
This was revealed at Wednesday’s meeting of the Public Administration and Appropriations Committee, PAAC.
The port was installed at a cost of just over $80-thousand.
Chevon Campbell has that story.
Chief Executive Officer of the St Ann Municipal Corporation, Rovel Morris, says the port was removed after concerns were raised at a previous meeting of the PAAC.
Mr. Morris insists that there’s no indication of the installation negatively affecting the corporation’s electricity bill.
South St. Catherine MP, Fitz Jackson, questioned what informed the installation of the port.
To this, Mr. Morris says it was installed to accommodate Mayor Belnavis’ vehicle.
Mr. Jackson, asked if any such other installation would’ve been made before to which Mr. Morris says no.
However, he says the matter was a question of ethics and no regulation existed to suggest the installation would be in breach.
Mayor Belnavis could not be reached for comment. Chevon Campbell for Nationwide News.
