Western Region Commissioners Agree On Development Planning

By David Seedee, LINA Bomi County Correspondent

TUBMANBURG, March 30 (LINA) -The Council of Commissioners in the Western Region of Liberia has resolved to formulate plans and strategies to assist and guide their county administrators in undertaking development initiatives in their respective districts.

The Western Region, which comprises Grand Cape Mount, Bomi and Gbarpolu Counties, has 14 commissioners who agreed during a regional meeting in Klay, Bomi County Saturday, to strategize on how they can exchange technological information and how best they can discuss development issues on the regional level.  

Speaking to the Liberia News Agency during the meeting, the Chairman of the Council of Commissioners, Foley Siryon, said the purpose of the council was to unite the commissioners of the region and bring understanding among them on how best they can coordinate activities from their various counties.

He said the Council, in its third sitting in Klay, will strategize on how to design projects that are good for their districts and the administrations of their respective counties.

Siryon said this will help their Superintendents and the County Legislative Caucuses to plan developments for the counties because, according to him, “the District Commissioners are the direct representatives of their districts and people.”

Over seventeen delegates, comprising of Commissioners and Representatives from Gbarpolu, Bomi and Grand Cape Mount counties, attended the meeting.
