THE Commissioner Western's office has decided to set up a database to keep track of government quarters in the Western Division.

Commissioner Western Commander Joeli Cawaki said the database would assist in identifying workers who needed homes.

"We have an issue with government quarters in the West so we need to set up this database so we know exactly how many homes are available and how many people need homes," he said.

Cdr Cawaki confirmed a total of 29 civil servants were living in quarters without authorisation while about 60 were still on a waiting list.

He also revealed government buildings would be constructed in Sigatoka.

"We need a building where all government offices can be housed like the Koronubu House in Ba.

"This makes work a lot easier for our people and the public to access government services all in one place."
