The roads in Ponle and Micom streets will be resurfaced according to the publication.

The new secretariat building, which had dragged for a long time, is also slated for completion.

It would be recalled that the construction of the building was one of the flagship projects of the Chairman, Jelili Sulaimon, during his first term but remained uncompleted throughout.

The notice also added that any contractor bidding to execute any of the construction works must have handled similar projects in the past.

The publication of the notice is seen as a welcome development by residents who have been clamouring for more dividends off democratic governance within the local government.
