Bong Community College, Other Projects Stall

By Ballah M. Kollie, Bong County Correspondent

GBARNGA, Jan 23, (LINA) - The Bong County Community College and a number of other projects are at a standstill due to lack of funds, an official of the Internal Affairs has disclosed.

Project Monitoring and Evaluation Officer, Daniel Tentay, said the other projects include a town hall and high school in Sanoyea.

He told the Liberia News Agency Thursday that the project were executed to an appreciable level, but that funding drawn from both the Social and County Development Funds for fiscal Year 2012/2013 are yet to be disbursed to county authorities.

The County Development Fund is an allocation from the National Budget, while the Social Development Fund is a corporate responsibility contribution from concessions in the county to promote development.

Mr. Tentay said though the county has already spent US$4 million on the Community College, the project remains incomplete, requiring additional funding to complete it.

He said the Sanoyea Town Hall valued at US$57,000 has been 80 percent complete, while about 60 percent of the High school project costing US$101,000 has been completed, though the county has made 100 percent payment to the contractor.

Bong County is second to Nimba County as counties that receive the highest amounts in social development funds, a policy introduced by the Unity Party-led government.
