Attack on M&CC Engineer Department

Dear Editor,
I read an article in a section of the media dated December 14, 2019, captioned “Engineer Boston comes in for harsh criticism”. Reading that article, one may be inclined to get an impression of what transpired, that could be very misleading but from my personal investigation, it was revealed that the National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) gave the contract to clean those drains outside of Bourda Market to a private contractor, without the knowledge or involvement of the M&CC Engineer’s Department, but since the work was city-based, the Department made contact with the supervisor on the site and subsequently assigned one of its engineers to make intermittent checks on the operations.
The Engineer’s Department later learned that differences had developed between the Markets Department and the contractor, resulting in that Department closing down the operations. At no time was the Engineer Department formally involved in the project.
What continues to occur at City Hall is, as soon as something becomes Public, they immediately find a ‘whipping boy’. What also seems to be very disturbing is that the Town Clerk (ag) allows her officers to be mutilated and disrespected. She is simply not prepared to fight with them in the trenches. It is, therefore, clearly obvious that she has her eyes on a greater prize and doesn’t want to get her feet muddy.
Anyone who knows and had interactions with Kenson Boston (City Engineer ag) will never associate him with incompetence, dereliction of duty, insubordination or disloyalty to the M&CC. There is indeed more in the mortar than in the pestle.
The Georgetown City Council’s desire for blood and the customary baying of the dogs is clearly an innate desire to get someone’s head as the biblical Herod’s stepdaughter, Salome, demonically sought and got the head of John the Baptist.
What is also very disturbing is that a Councillor representing Albouystown supports every motion, good or bad, understood or not. I guess he has to remain visible to justify his election to the Council. City Hall’s Officer Corp is in real trouble.
