As part of its social responsibilities, The La Dade-Kotopon Municipal Assembly, (LaDMA) on Wednesday March 31, 2021 held its first town hall meeting for the year at the La Presbyterian Church of Ghana (Epiphany Congregation, Kaajaano). The meeting was to take stock of the activities and projects undertaken by the assembly for the year 2020.
The focus of the assembly is to improve the general sanitation, educational facilities for quality education, and the general security in the municipality, create jobs for the people especially for the youth and women, improve revenue mobilization and customer service standards as well as promote participatory preparation of medium- term development plan for 2022 to 2025.
In his address, the MCE for LaDMA Hon. Solomon Nikoi Kotey said funds were available for the execution of major projects and activities that were undertaken by the assembly during the period. He told members of the assembly and stakeholders that, only four out of 100 projects were not accomplished due to the COVID-19 pandemic and revenue mobilization issues.
The projects includes the one tree per child, my first day at school, science technology mathematics innovation and engineering and other education and sensitization programmes, but said the projects would be rolled out for the year.
According to the MCE, indiscriminate disposal of waste, non-payment of property rates, business operating permits, allocation of building permits and building at unauthorized areas were major challenges militating against the programs and activities of the assembly and called on stakeholders to honour their responsibilities to move the assembly forward.
