The Freetown City Council (FCC) yesterday commissioned five tricycle sanitation garbage collectors at their Wallace Johnson Street head office in Freetown.
Commissioning the cabbage collectors, the acting mayor Herbert George Williams said, “our focus is to make sure that the city is clean and attractive to investors”.
The smiling acting mayor stated that this was council’s obligation towards its municipality to make the people’s welfare was addressed, noting that this was just the beginning of the many things the council would do in the future.
He added that, “council will do anything with our limited resources to ensure that the city is clean”, adding that the council and the government were ready to work for their people.
Mr Williams noted that,”we are trying with our revenue drive and for the past two weeks the council raised over Le200 million from licenses”.
The Chief Administrator, Benison Philips, said the council had intensified its revenue drive to serve the people’s needs. He added that the garbage collectors would go around the city collecting rubbish to ensure that the city was kept clean, which would be good for the welfare of the people.
Mr Philips disclosed that health inspectors would start inspecting compound to compound inspection to ensure that people clean their compounds.
