Mr Thomas Appiah-Kubi, Asante Mampong Municipal Chief Executive, has urged communities in the area to form neighbourhood watch committees to help combat criminal activities.
The assembly members should therefore show leadership by mobilizing community members to take a keen interest in the formation of the committees to combat the menace.
Mr Appiah-Kubi who was speaking at the ordinary meeting of the assembly at Asante Mampongs said the assembly was collaborating with the Mampong Divisional Command of the Ghana Police Service to help train volunteers of the watch committees to make them more effective.
Touching on revenue, he said the assembly was able to internally mobilize a total of GH₵735,663.44, representing 63.68 per cent of the targeted GH₵1,155,174.50, which was set for the period ending June 2022.
Mr Appiah-Kubi indicated that stakeholder engagements and expansion of the revenue database were among the efforts being made to widen the revenue net in the area.
He reminded the people that the covid-19 menace was still hovering around and called on them to continue to observe the safety protocols to stay safe.
