LC 1 Chairpersons Tasked To Conduct Monthly And Quarterly Community Meetings To Identify Immediate Community Needs
LC 1 Chairpersons have been tasked to conduct monthly and quarterly community meetings to identify immediate community needs.
Mbarara district water officer Eng Joseph Mucunguzi has revealed this while sensitizing district councilors and other district stakeholders on water and sanitation planned programs at Kamukuzi district council Hall.
He advised the meeting that its the responsibility of local council one chairpersons to conduct regular meetings, make reports and submit them through their respective sub county chairpersons to district for needed action.
The district councilor representing Kashare sub county Mark Mugisha proposed that sensitization programs for sub county chairpersons and other local leaders on operations and maintenance of boreholes be conducted.
However during the meeting it was observed that political interference on making promises which they can’t implement has caused the public to ignore their mandate of ensuring community contributions.
The communities make contributions to ensure to facilitate repairs within community capacity for operations and maintenance on certain amount as agreed by the community.
