By John N. Bropleh, LINA Maryland County Correspondent

HARPER, September 8 (LINA) - Residents of Harper in Maryland County have for the first time constituted the Harper Central Community Council (HCCC) aimed at accelerating the growth and development of the city.

The Council, which comprises members from the 29 communities in and around Harper, was inducted into office at the Harper City Hall recently.

The leadership of the Council includes the former Chairman of Green Street Community Paul Targbe as Chairman; Mustafa Miller, Co-chair; Abednego Robertson, General Security and Napoleon Johnson, Financial Secretary. Other are Comfort Harmon, Treasurer and Harrison Tiawolo, Chaplain.

Harper acting City Mayor Rev. Nathaniel Wesley, who performed the induction ceremony, admonished the leadership to strive to improve the living conditions of residents of Harper City and the county at large.

He expressed joy about the organization of the council which, he added, will boost the functions of the Harper City Corporation.

Speaking earlier, the Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent, Daniel Williams, who served as guest speaker, pledged the county authority’s support to the Council.

He described the formation of the council as a welcome development which every citizen of the county should embrace.

In his remarks, Council chair Targbe pledged that the council was preparedness to work with the United Nations Police (UNPOL), the Liberia National Police (LNP) and other state security agencies in tackling crimes in the city.

Targbe indicated that the Council will also work with the relevant security agency to ensure that consumption of harmful drugs and alcohol, especially by those under age 18, will be tackled and abolished.

He then called on parents to cooperate with the Council to ensure that its planned campaign is successfully implemented.
