The Ejisu-Juaben District Assembly in Ashanti has so far collected over one 1000, 000 Ghana cedis as revenue between January and September this year.
Mr. Yaw Ahenkora Afrifa, the District Chief Executive, who announced this at the assembly's meeting at Ejisu, said the amount represented about 70 per cent of its targeted revenue for the year.
He commended the revenue collectors for their hard work that resulted in an increase in revenue collection in the district and the people for paying their taxes promptly and regularly.
Mr. Afrifa said the assembly received over 100, 000 Ghana cedis as its second quarter allocation of the District Assemblies' Common Fund and said the amount had been disbursed to fund on-going development projects in the area.
He said the assembly had signed a five-year agreement with the Zoomlion Company to provide sanitation services in the district.
Mr. Afrifa said the Nana Aboagye Agyei, the Paramount Chief of Ejisu Traditional Area, has released land for the construction of the Yaa Asantewaa Museum at Ejisu.
