The Grand Bassa County Project Management Committee (PMC) recently broke ground for the extension of the Gio Town Elementary and Junior High School in District #4.
At the ground breaking occasion, the county’s PMC chairman, Theophilus Wah Bedell, said the extension of the school came in the wake of the recent county council sitting when US$75, 000 was allotted for the project.
He explained that the project is the first of several major projects the PMC planned to undertake during the administration of Mr. Bedell, whose leadership started in 2015.
He said the project, which is awarded to the Unity Construction Company, when completed by July this year, will accommodate the influx of students from the Gio Town community and the surrounding villages.
Grand Bassa County Electoral District #5 Representative, Robertson Neewendeh Siaway, expressed gratitude to the PMC for the project.
He encouraged the residents to work along with the contractors by willingly providing at least drinking water and whatever they can afford to speed up the project.
Rep. Siaway strongly warned the residents of the community not to steal any of the materials intended for the project.
