MINISTER for Local Government Colonel Samuela Saumatua has urged all special administrators around the country to keep up the good work in assisting people with issues they raise within their municipalities.

Col. Saumatua said it was important to always thank the special administrators for their contribution towards development in their own towns and cities because they played an important role under the ministry.

He said special administrators were even consistent about collecting rates from ratepayers on time.

"For us late payments of rates are an ongoing issue and it depends on people's financial status in a year," Col. Saumatua said.

"We have to put into consideration that some people will have trouble paying their rates on time and so we have to come up with alternative payment plans for them," Col. Saumatua said

"The special administrators and their officers under the municipalities make an effort in collecting rate arrears and they have been doing a great job."
