The Superintendent of Bomi County, Samuel F. Brown, has said there are eleven projects, including clinics, schools, bridges and a multi-purpose building, valued at US$900,000, being undertaken in the county.
Mr. Brown, during an interview with the Daily Observer in Bomi County, described the projects as milestones for the county.
He said many of the projects will be completed in ninety days, including teachers’ and nurses’ quarters to help ease the challenges teachers and nurses face in finding proper housing in the county.
Mr. Brown said other projects include the construction of Besiah, Devane and Barmo bridges in Senjeh District, and Zuweh Town Bridge in Suehn, Mecca District, among others.
Cooper Town Administrative Hall and Mulbah Town School in Suehn Mecca are other projects being implemented.
Resources are being mobilized to begin other projects, including Third Administrative Headquarters, Malama Clinic.
“We have projects for latrines and a water system and hope we will soon begin, particularly in Tubmanburg, to help address those needs our people are faced with,” he said.
“Nurses will be willing to leave Monrovia and take jobs in Bomi because they will be provided with a sleeping place. We also want to attract more professional people in the county and will continue to create (conditions) that best suit them.”
He also described bad roads as one of the major problems facing the county but hailed the youth of the county for engaging in meaningful activities, including the pavement of community roads with support from Project Concern International (PCI).
Meanwhile, Superintendent Brown is appealing to local and international partners to help farmers in the county with seed rice, as many farmers are able to engage in regular and large scale farming ventures.
“This year, the people of Bomi are making more farms and have cleared farmland, but many farmers are in need of seed rice for planting,” he said.
