UNOPS Re-building Harper Administration Building
By John Bropleh, Maryland County Correspondent
HARPER, Feb 6 (LINA) -The Harper City Administration Building which was burnt down during the civil conflict is being reconstructed with funding from the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS).
Destruction of the building forced the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, Circuit and Magisterial Court Judges, among other officials, to relocate to the Harper City Hall.
Speaking in an interview with the Liberia News Agency in Harper Wednesday, the UN contract project engineer, John Sumo, said reconstruction work on the building, which was started last year, is 90 percent completed.
He said work came to a standstill for one month because the UN vessel which transports construction materials to Harper developed a technical problem and had to be sent to neighboring Ivory Coast for repairs.
Sumo said with the return of the vessel, work on the building has resumed with intensity and that the building is expected to be completed in the second quarter of this year.
He disclosed that when completed, the building will house the offices of the Superintendent, Assistant Superintendent, Circuit and Magisterial Courts, among other local government offices.
