Last week the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) intervened with Market Weighton Town Council (MWTC) due to MWTC failing to conduct themselves lawfully.
Market Weighton Town Mayor – Councillor Peter Hemmerman
MWTC failed to deal lawfully with a Freedom of Information request. The request is in relation to the unlawful operating of the Market Weighton CCTV system.
On Thursday ICO confirmed:
“I have contacted the Market Weighton Town Council and asked it to respond to your request within 10 working days. If it fails to do this, a decision notice will be issued requiring it to respond to your request.”
Like Pocklington Town Council it would appear that MWTC has much to hide.
