Liberia: Brewerville City Corporation Identifies With Residents, Others

The City Mayor of Brewerville has called on residents to collectively work together in order to move the city forward in terms of economic growth and infrastructure development. Mr. G. Varney Curtis, Sr. said citizens must co-exist with one another in order to enhance and fast track development initiatives in Brewerville City.

He made these comments recently at a ceremony marking the celebration of Christmas Season at the Brewerville Town Hall, outside Monrovia. The celebration brought together hundreds of children from several sub-communities in Brewerville city. He noted that the celebration was aimed at identifying with children as well as community dwellers during this time of the year.

According to Mr. Curtis, the essence of Christmas celebration is "all about giving", and as such, it is prudent for the Brewerville City Corporation (BCC) to identify with its people. He lauded prominent citizens of Brewerville including Cllr. Pearl Brown-Bull and Dr. Kerkula Kpoto, amongst others for their role played in supporting the celebration.

At the same time, several bags of rice were distributed to some residents of the city, especially the old folks during the celebration. Five (5) children also walked away with a bicycle each after winning separate dancing competitions at the celebration.

Speaking in an interview with this paper during the celebration, the residents commended the BCC for observing the festive season with community dwellers. They promised to work with the office of the City Mayor for the betterment of Brewerville City. The city, which is located in District # 17 in Montserrado County, is one of the oldest cities in the country that is backward in terms of development.
