The historic City Hall, described as one of the finest examples of Gothic Architecture in the Caribbean, could see long-awaited and much needed rehabilitation soon.

Built in the late 19th century, City Hall has been left to fall apart over the years, but now the government says it is ready to put funding to get the structure back in shape. The announcement today from Cabinet Secretary Dr Roger Luncheon.

No price tag has been attached to what is expected to be a mammoth task to restore the building and maintain its architectural style, which is known as “fancy dress” Gothic. Continue reading

Council battles to manage the City, while battling the Town Clerk

Council battles to manage the City, while battling the Town Clerk as well

November 30, 2012 Capitol News – There are more problems at City Hall and it has nothing to do with your garbage. The Council moved a no-confidence motion against the acting Town Clerk at its last statutory meeting. The Town Clerk seemed unimpressed by the move, saying, that she is unclear under which Municipal Law the councillors are seeking to remove her.

Yesterday (November 29, 2012), at another statutory meeting councillors voted against the acting Town Clerk continuing in her current post and walked out of the statutory meeting.

After the councillors left the meeting, Sooba tried to address the issue but was told by the Chairperson of the meeting, Deputy Mayor Patricia Chase-Green, that there was not a quorum.

While all the inner fighting  continues at  City Hall, garbage is piling up everywhere.

It was a day when a sea of colours dominated by the red, black, yellow and green virtually illuminated downtown Georgetown and despite the heavy police presence and barriers, some supporters managed to breach the gates and swamp City Hall, all to the throbbing sounds of music.

When the dust had settled, eight parties on Nomination Day had submitted their lists of candidates, with more questions than answers for the political analysts who would sure be hitting the TV channels and letter pages to place their spin on proceedings.       more
