The Commissioner General expressed his satisfaction with the recent efforts made by the Mount Hagen City Authority (MHCA), the Western Highlands Provincial Government, and the Provincial Police Commandment in cleaning up Mount Hagen City. He highlighted that this positive progress was the main reason for signing the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) end of last year, which ensures that 20% of the Western Highlands Provincial Government's Goods and Services Tax (GST) share is directly allocated to the MHCA. The taxpayers in the city have been requesting such cleanup initiatives, and Mr Koim sees it as a promising start.
Under the MoU, the MHCA will receive a monthly amount of almost one million Kina this year. These funds are intended for addressing concerns related to law and order, improving the cleanliness and appearance of the city, enhancing city roads, and addressing other challenges faced by the municipal authority.
A similar agreement was implemented in the Morobe Province a few years ago, where the Lae City Authority also receives 20% of the Morobe Provincial Government's GST share. This funding has played a vital role in providing essential services to the taxpayers of Lae.
Demonstrating the tangible results of taxpayers' contributions boosts their morale and increases confidence in the proper use of their taxes.
