More revenue says Kitale Mayor

29 August 2012, 17:15 Mwangi Karanja

Kitale Municipality Mayor, Charles Bonyo has called on the newly elected committee chairs to put more effort in harnessing revenue for the smooth running of the council.

Bonyo asked the newly elected members of the committees of Finance, Public Health and Environment, Social Services and Housing, Audit, Education and Town Planning and Works to work harder in the remaining months in order to ensure they clear most of the council bills and debts, especially the salaries.

The Kitale Municipality which had been denied LATF was awarded LATF Funds to clear most of their pending bills and pay their workers salary arrears and clear some of their accumulating bills.

“We need to be more careful with the revenue collected as this time around we do not have LATF allocation but there is so much we need to do.” The Mayor told the committee chairs.

The Municipality roads are among the major projects the council is undertaking and has already set out plans to repair them before the end of term.

Bonyo said they had plans to start repairing the roads that are in the municipality and are already working with the council Clerk to come up with budgets and see how to deploy the council’s Grader to start working on the roads.

He also called on the committee in charge of the Municipal market to ensure there is adequate security in the market as traders complain of losing their goods to thieves at night.

He said the market is a revenue source for the council and there is need to ensure the traders’ goods are well taken care of.

Bonyo was speaking in his office at the Municipal Hall where he was meeting with the newly elected committee members and chairpersons.
