He made the appeal recently at the groundbreaking ceremony of the County Service Center which is expected to host ministries, agencies and commissions that would provide government related services in the county.
The completion of a radio station, he said, would require US$151,000 which includes purchasing a transmitter and other accessories to run the station. Superintendent Sarnor said although the road from Monrovia to Suehn-Mecca District has been completed, they continue to face serious challenge connecting the remaining part of the road to Bopolu, Gbarbolu County.
“If the road is completed, we will find people coming in and even things will be cheap on the market because of the connectivity of the road. We don’t have cars because of the bad road situation. We are troubled that during the rainy season, our people lack free movements in and out of the county,” he added.
As the newest county, he said, they are doing well and are trying to give the county a facelift. “We need the full support of both the government and its partners. We also believe that unity is the way forward for any new county and we will continue to fight for the betterment of Gbarpolu County,” Supt Sarnor noted.
When completed, the center will provide access to marriage certificates, vehicle registration, driver’s license and birth certificates. Supt Sarnor said the county has many aliens who are partners in progress and would like to see the registration of aliens taking place in the counties as opposed to Monrovia.
“It will be good for us as a people and country to have such a process handled in the various counties,” he said.Meanwhile, Supt Sarnor has insisted that contractors who are expected to construct the center to hire workers from Gbarpolu County instead of other counties.
