BARCLAYVILLE, July 8 (LINA) – Residents of Barclayville and its environs were seen jubilating recently as street lights were switched on across the city in preparation for the July 26 Independence Day celebration.
The turning on of street lights, performed by the Director General of the General Services Agency (GSA), Mary T. Broh, is the first since the creation of Grand Kru County 31 years ago. Barclayville is the county capital.
Barclayville City Mayor John Mah told the Liberia News Agency Tuesday that as a result of the electrification of the city, trade and commercial activities will also intensify during the night.
Mah praised the GSA Director General for “her selfless sacrifices” in preparing the city for the independence celebration since she arrived in Barclayville some three months ago.
Mah noted that all is now set for the celebration as the GSA boss is now concluding efforts to put the city in proper form for the occasion.
Mah disclosed that a Chiefs’ Compound in Barclayville, two administrative buildings in Buah and Nyakunpoh Dorbor Statutory Districts are part of several completed projects that are expected to be dedicated during the independence celebration.
Other projects expected to be dedicated are two junior high school buildings in Po-River, Trehn Statutory District, and Jlatweh in Wedabo District.
Grand Kru and Sinoe Counties are billed to hold the joint celebration of this year’s Independence Day.
