Bomi To Fund College Students From CDF

By David Seedee, Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, Jan 30 (LINA) –Bomi County will extend financial assistance to students from the county attending universities and colleges in the country in 2014, an official has disclosed.

Assistant Superintendent for Development, Ernest Davis, said also earmarked for funding in the 2014 County and Social Development Funds are the Tubmanburg City Corporation and Radio Bomi, a community radio serving the county.

He said in a resolution passed by county authorities, there will be construction of public latrines in Tubmanburg and donation of chairs to public schools.

On infrastructure development, Supt. Davis said projects identified for 2014 are construction of schools in Suehn Mecca and Dewein Districts, clinics and a multi-purpose building in Tubmanburg for women.

He said rehabilitation of damaged bridges and roads connecting Tubmanburg and other communities, and construction of a teachers’ residence in Suehn Mecca District are among priority projects for implementation in 2014.

Superintendent Davis said if the resolution from the county council meeting submitted to the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Ministry of Finance for approval is accepted, the projects will commence.

He told the Liberia News Agency in Tubmanburg, Wednesday, that the county has in its account US$1.3 million to implement projects in the four districts of the county, which was generated from the County and Social Development Funds. 

He said the Government of Liberia provided US$200,000 as County Development Fund, while the Western Cluster Limited provided US$750,000 as Social Development Fund, while contributions came from other concessions in the county.
