Mayor of the Freetown Municipality, His Worship Franklyn Bode Gibson has on Friday 30th August 2013 told journalists in Freetown that the project for the construction of the Freetown City Hall on Wallace Johnson Street is expected to commence in October of this year by a Korean contractor.


The mayor was addressing newsmen at a press conference held at the Council’s Conference Hall on Friday past, where he also expressed dissatisfaction over the lethargy of some city residents to pay their taxes, especially the local tax and city rates.


He said there are millions of leones lying down in the hands of people who have deliberately refused to meet their tax obligations for the years 2012/2013.


He said since the start of 2013 to date, the sale of local tax receipts has been very discouraging, adding that people have blatantly refused to pay their local tax to the council despite all attempts made to encourage them to pay.


The mayor called on Freetonians to forget the past and see this council as a new council quite different from past councils in term of administrations and operations, whilst kindly appealing to them to comply with their tax obligations for the development of the municipality.
