The Ahafo-Ano South District Assembly is to register all the 37 commission revenue collectors with the District Mutual Health Insurance Scheme (DMHIS) free of charge.
Kwaku Obeng Boateng, the District Chief Executive, who announced
this in an address to revenue collectors at a meeting at Mankranso on Wednesday, May 30, 2007, said, the move was a morale booster to improve revenue collection in the area.
The DCE said the assembly will reward the best seven collectors in December and re-deploy those with poor performances in order to ensure seriousness and hard work.
Mr. Boateng entreated assembly and unit committee members, area councilors and stakeholders to assist the collectors in their operations since revenue generation was the backbone of the assembly.
At the meeting, the Mpasaso Area Council was inaugurated with Daniel Boateng as chairman.
Alexander Yeboah, an assemblyman for the area, called on timber contractors to pay their revenue at the localities they operated instead at Mankranso because that affected the competitiveness in revenue generation at the local levels.
