Juaben Municipal Assembly had its First Ordinary General Assembly Meeting of the Fourth Session of the Second Assembly on Thursday, 27th April, 2023 at the Old Circuit Court House.

Speaking at the programme, Mr. Omane Aboagye, the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of the Juaben Municipal Assembly appealed to the Assembly members that apart from legislative and executive activities, it is their core mandate to deliberate and take decisions on pertinent development issues. Thus, all of them should come out with constructive ideas to help improve our Municipality.

He said, the financial performance of the Assembly in terms of Internally Generated Funds (IGF) from January to December 2022, and first quarter of 2023, an estimated amount of GHs 822,232.79 was budgeted for the year 2022 but the actual collection made was GHs 616,615.09 representing 74.9%. The target was not achieved and this could largely be attributed to inadequate revenue collectors, lack of official vehicles to conduct periodic unannounced monitoring and interruption of the rain during market days.

On the District Assembly Common Fund (DACF), He said the Assembly from the Central Government received an amount of

-GHs 273,007.00 as 1st Quarter 2022

-GHs 273,007.00 as 2nd Quarter 2022

-GHs 228,643.84 as 3rd Quarter 2022

-GHs 228,913.84 as 4th Quarter 2022

He also added that the Assembly is yet to receive any allocation for 1st Quarter 2023. According to the MCE, with this financial report, the Assembly embarked on several development projects notably;

-1 No. 2 Bedroom Semi-Detached staff quarters at Juaben on Lintil

-Renovation of 1 No. 6 unit Classroom Block with Office and Store at Juaben Islamic Primary School

On the Persons with Disability (PWDs) fund, the MCE indicated that in 2022, Government released GHs 101,182.17 and added to the previous year’s balance of GHs 48,416.61 to make a total of GHs 149,598.78. This amount was used to support 56 PWDs. Out of the 56 beneficiaries; 42 were physically challenged, 2 blind, 2 deaf, 6 visually impaired, 3 intellectually disabled and 1 had difficulty in hearing.
