Margibi Citizens Identify Development Priorities
By Richard Baysah, LINA Margibi County Correspondent

KAKATA, June 4 (LINA) - Citizens of Margibi County have identified key priority areas of development in the county for fiscal year 2014/2015.

A resolution derived over the weekend at the Kakata City Hall during the County Council Sitting, calls for the establishment of a scholarship committee in each of the five districts of Margibi County.

Other priorities are the purchase of earth moving equipment for road work, support to community radio stations operating in the county, and completion of unfinished projects in the county.

The County Sitting is an annual event where monies from the County Development Fund and Social Development Fund are apportioned based on priority needs identified by citizens in consultation with the county leadership, including members of the Legislative Caucus.

During the County Sitting, several challenges facing the county that led to the stalling of a number of projects in the county were identified.

Among the challenges cited are delays in receiving funds from the Ministry of Finance and lack of effective project monitoring and evaluation due to mobility problem.

No specific amount was apportioned for each of the projects given priority during the County Sitting.

Meanwhile, Margibi Superintendent John Z. Buway said in his report that central government still owed the county over US$1.7 million from the county’s Social Development Fund.

The county sitting was attended by all members of the Margibi County Legislative Caucus and 123 of 126 delegates representing the 12 traditional communities, Statutory Districts, Districts, Townships, concession areas and municipalities.
