Province levy shortfall

Luke Rawalai
Monday, January 28, 2013

THE Bua Provincial Council is urging its people to dig deeper in their pockets and give generously for the development of their province.

Council chairman Alipate Radrodro said they had collected $20,209 out of the council's $28,134 budgeted operational expenses for 2013.

"Some districts have not given in their soli (provincial levies) and this is the reason that we are left with the balance of our estimated provincial collection this year," Mr Radrodro told the council.

These districts have been requested to hand in their contributions by the end of February.

Mr Radrodro said the sooner this was done the better it would be for everyone so the council could start with planning for next year's budget strategies.

"The council also agreed that the cut off date for the provincial levies, which would run the council office next year, will be November this year," he said.

The chairman also urged district reps to enlighten villagers under their jurisdiction on how their contributions were used in the various developments in the province. "You all play a fundamental role in making your people aware of such issues," he said.
