Councillors of Lae Urban Local Level Government have called on the Morobe Provincial Government to make funds available in order to deliver projects on time.
Lae Urban Ward Six Councillor, Billy Kinsim, speaking on behalf of the ward councillors, questioned why funds are not available on time through the District Office.
The councillors are still waiting for their projects passed by District Development Authority (DDA) to be implemented.
The councillors of the six wards in Lae Urban gathered today at the Lae City Council Office to query why their terms in office were cut, and why funds were delayed.
Kinsim for Ward Six, Carol Yawing from Ward Two and McQuinn Douglas Ward Three raised these concerns.
The delays are affecting their five-years development plans in carrying out services in their respective areas.
The election of the councillors will be held together with the Provincial and National Election in 2017.
Despite the councillors terms shortened by one year, they are still waiting for their projects passed by the DDA to be implemented.
Kinsim says the provincial government and the district office should clarify the delay in DSIP funds and LLG Service Improvement Program.
Former Councillor for Ward Three Vince Bob says the people want to see the tangible outcome of what the leaders can bring to their community, and that depends on how fast and accurate the management can act in order to deliver.
Douglas says the management should be transparent and make funds available on time to better serve its people.
