Janjangbureh council offices under refurbishment
Friday, August 07, 2009
The offices of the Janjangbureh Area Council are currently undergoing major refurbishment. Prior to the refurbishment, there were only three offices with one toilet within the council, but now the offices have been increased to ten with four toilets.
In an interview with the Daily Observer, Ousainou Jeng of the Korjojo Construction Group explained that some offices will be expanded and will have internal toilets. He expressed his company's determination to finish the work within the stipulated period of time, which is six months. He explained that the refurbishment of the council offices are not their major projects in the Janjanbureh area, as they also constructed the central mosque, and other structures in the area.
The chief executive officer, Janjangbureh Area Council, Yusupha Manneh, said the coucil's offices were constructed in 1927 by the colonists as part of a tennis recreation centre, before being turned into a court house, a community centre, and finally into the council's officer. The development officer of the council, Modou Jegne, said there was office shortage in the council and the construction of new offices will go a long way in improving staff performance.
The total cost of the works is more than D300,000.
