Any report against wardens must be in writing: PVMC

The Port Vila Municipal Council Town Clerk, Peter Sakita, has asked for Port Vila residents to make a report in writing if they have anything to report about the actions of any of its wardens.

Mr Sakita stated this after returning from China with the Lord Mayor, Albert Daniel and Deputy Lord Mayor, Eric Festa.

A number of reports of such complaints were raised after the return of the three leading figures of the Council.

“Such report must be in black and white and handed in to the Executive Secretary of the Council.

“The report must contain proof of the allegations raised, time and date of when the alleged events took place,” Sakita said.

The Town Clerk encourages any individuals with such complaint to make such report to the Council.

Once the report is received and if it is determined to be serious in nature then it will be taken up with the full Council meeting to make a decision on.

But the Port Vila Municipal Council says under law, only the Clerk of the Council can take a disciplinary decision against a staff member.

The Port Vila Municipal Council is planning on going through a rebranding and one of these changes is how its workers conduct themselves in transparent and accountable manner.
