Commissioners ‘lamppost gate’ complaint maladministration

The Tynwald Commissioner for Administration has ruled Ramsey Commissioners taking too long to reply to a complaint as ‘maladministration’.

It was lodged about the conduct of board members during a debate on a proposal by a local business to paint a lamppost outside its shop in August last year.

In the report, Paul Beckett said the complaint to Ramsey Commissioners was made on 20 August 2023, four days after the local authority’s general board meeting.

The complainant, Mr Higgins, the husband of the shop owner involved in the debate, wrote in his complaint there was ‘deliberate disrespect’ shown during the meeting last August.

He also said the ‘citizens of Ramsey deserve far better’ than the debate which happened during the meeting.
