Mayor of the Freetown City Council (FCC), His Worship Sam Franklyn Bode Gibson, the Deputy Mayor Hannah Jaiah and the entire membership of the Council have intensified their monthly general meetings in various communities within the municipality.

 

The meetings are aimed to take the Council to the communities and also bring the communities to the Council in order to ensure that the Council is able to meet and address problems of communities within it mandate and to also include community people in decision making.

 

On Friday 10th May 2013, the FCC held a general council meeting at the Amariah Municipal School at Fullah Town in Freetown and prior to that, the FCC had earlier on held similar meetings at the Wellington Community Centre in the east, Ark Community Centre on Robert Street and Kroobay Community Centre in the west of Freetown respectively.

 

At the meeting held in Fullah Town, the Mayor was the Chairman of the ceremony and was accorded the full traditional honour by the Fullah Town community people. He was presented with a basket full of mix fruits which symbolized friendship and acquaintance.


In his welcome address, the mayor expressed appreciation for the respect bestowed on him as well as the turnout of the community members to the meeting. He promised the people of taking development to their doorsteps but urged them all to honour their task obligation.

 

“Pay all your taxes especially your local tax, which is now being sold by your Ward Committee members” he advised, whilst further promising to pay another official visit and discuss development aspirations with the Fullah Town community.

 

Among other things discussed in the meeting, the Head Teacher of Amariah School, Mrs. Frances Johnson expressed satisfaction over the FCC taking the Council to the people and the people to the Council.

 

She said it was prudent for the people’s representatives to be holding meetings of such nature with their electorates. Such meetings, she went on, will make the people feel they are part of decisions made in their communities.

 

Mrs. Johnson encouraged the Mayor and the FCC to continue holding such meetings noting that they will help in making the work of the Council easier and community people feel included in decision making with regards issues pertaining to the development of their communities.
