Ernesto Carter is the new Inspector of Licensed Premises for the Liquor Licensing Department.
‘This is a very important role to fill and we are confident that Mr. Carter will perform admirably,’ Chief Officer in the Ministry of Tourism, Environment, Investment and Commerce, Gloria McField-Nixon stated in a press release.
A building inspector with the Planning Department for the past 11 years, Mr. Carter says he is looking forward to the new challenge.
‘Although I enjoyed my time as a building inspector, I am very excited to move my career in a different direction. I am energized about the many opportunities for growth and personal development that my new role as Inspector in the Liquor Licensing Department offers,’ he said.
Up until Mr. Carter’s appointment, there had been a 14 month gap without a Liquor Licensing Inspector.
Former Liquor Licensing Inspector Donald Green died in a motorcycle accident in December 2007.
The mandate of the Inspector of Licensed Premises is to set up and carry out a programme of inspections of licensed premises on a regular basis to ensure that all premises are operating within the confines of the Liquor Licensing Law 1985 (2000 Revision).
Included in the duties of the inspector, are the routine inspections of all licensed premises throughout the year in the Cayman Islands; receiving and investigating complaints from members of the public and licence holders, and logging and reporting findings of complaints to the Liquor Licensing Board and the Ministry.
