Harper Mayor Appeals For Water, Sanitation

By John Bropleh, Maryland County Correspondent 

HARPER, Feb 3 (LINA) -The Mayor of Harper City in Maryland County, Madam Regina Sampson, is appealing to international NGOs operating in water and sanitation sector to assist the Corporation provide water for the over 20,000 residents of the city.

She said services provided by the few NGOs currently operating in the city do not cover the entire population, thus denying majority of the residents access to safe drinking water.

Speaking Saturday in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Harper, Mayor Sampson said the situation was worrisome as residents risk falling prey to water-borne diseases because they are constrained to drink water from creeks around the City.

She told LINA that since the civil crisis, which damaged the city’s water facilities, there has not been adequate supply of safe-drinking water in Harper, and that restoring water supply to the city is the City Corporation’s number one priority.

Meanwhile, the Harper City Mayor has disclosed that the destruction of the City Hall Theater during the Liberian Civil Crisis is hampering the revenue generation capacity of the City Corporation.

Madam Sampson said the theater was used to host workshops, seminars, weddings and conferences and served as a source of revenue for the corporation.
