THE Ahafo-Ano North District Assembly will pay an exgratia of GH¢1,000 to its members when their four-year term of office expires this year.
This came up during the last ordinary meeting of the assembly at Tepa, the district capital.
In his address, the District Chief Executive (DCE), Mr David Addai Amankwah, admitted there was a lot of work to be done to improve the standard of living of the people in the district.
He said a number of communities were in need of roads, electricity, potable water, schools, clinics and other projects, and mentioned the assembly’s determination to meet the aspirations of the people.
The DCE said the assembly would work hard at ensuring that the district had its fair share of the national cake.
He said the assembly had not achieved its set revenue targets over the last few years, but said efforts would be made to improve revenue generation.
He said the assembly would organise workshops for revenue collectors to update their skills.
The assembly would use the Information Services Department vans to educate people on the programmes of the assembly.
The assembly, he said, would also implement development projects whenever funds were available.
