Koijee told a news conference at the Monrovia City Hall on Wednesday April 4, 2018, that to have effective and enhanced launch of the massive clean-up of the city, businesses will, as usual, remain closed from 7:00 to 10:00 a.m.Koijee said during the clean-up exercise, the MCC will be assisted by members of the Armed Forces of Liberia, noting that the official clean-up exercise will begin from the Freeport of Monrovia to New Kru Town and then to Duala Market.
Meanwhile, Koijee is calling on community residents to come out in their numbers to assist the MCC in giving their city a facelift, adding that as a result of the huge challenge being faced by the Paynesville City Corporation, the MCC has decided to also provide clean-up assistance to that city.
According to him, this should not be misconstrued as an attempt by the MCC to undermine the Paynesville City Corporation, as he is aware that the MCC’s jurisdiction does not extend to Paynesville, but the MCC has interest in supporting other cities, adding, “Paynesville Mayor could do the same if Monrovia was facing such challenge.
Meanwhile MayorKoijee has disclosed plans that the MCC will craft the Waste Management Policy and share it with citizens of Monrovia to ensure that the people are aware of the work of the MCC.
In another development, the MCC boss has disclosed that beginning April 20, the MCC will extend the city parking fee collection to Capitol By-Pass, Sinkor and Congo Town and that the MCC will be fully in charge of it.
He explained that beginning April 4 the MCC will commence sending out communications to business and private property owners within those areas to inform them of the new parking exercise.
