THE Bua Provincial Council is $10,321 short of achieving its targeted total provincial levy for this year.

Speaking at the second day of the council meeting in Nabouwalu yesterday, the roko tui Bua Rupeni Kunaturaga said so far the council had received $17,813 from districts within the province.

Mr Kunaturaga told members of the council that provincial levies for last year totalled $26,586 which was 94 per cent of the original estimate.

He said the estimate for last year and this year was the same at $28,134 and districts managed to collect 63 per cent of this amount.

Mr Kunaturaga told the council the provincial levies failed to achieve the targeted amount every year.

Council chairman Alipate Radrodro told the council that district representatives should start visiting members of their districts to remind them of their provincial levies.

Speaking on the issue, Ratu Filimoni Ralogaivau told the council they needed to implement a mechanism to remedy the situation.

Ratu Filimoni told members of the council the people were burdened every year through church and provincial levies, apart from providing for their families every day.

He said the council needed to also consider the difficulties they went through to come up with their dues.
