The PNP, which controls the municipal corporation, said: “[The resignation] follows payment for work in the parish for which a cheque was disbursed before the voucher was approved by the requisite signatories.”

It further stated that the Chief Executive Officer of the corporation has called in the police to investigate the matter.

“Mayor Mitchell wishes to restate the corporation’s commitment to transparency, and says every effort will be made to ensure that the integrity of the corporation is maintained,” the PNP further said.

Details of the alleged breaches have not been disclosed.
