Local Government Minister Desmond McKenzie says St Ann councillors have recommended that embattled St Ann’s Bay mayor Michael Belnavis resign his post.
McKenzie, who is also a Jamaica Labour Party deputy leader, met with the councillors today.
Belnavis has faced public criticism following the recent disclosure at a parliamentary committee that a charging station was erected at taxpayers’ expense at the St Ann Municipal Corporation for his hybrid Porsche motor.
It was also revealed that the municipal corporation spent $46 million on COVID-19 expenditure to sanitise the town of Ocho Rios.
And last week a Sunday Gleaner probe revealed that Belnavis is a director of a private company that captured government land in St Ann and constructed a building in a daring disregard of the country’s laws.
