This has resulted in the resuscitation of strengthening and motivation of the local government worker for optimum performance and prompt delivery of service, regular sittings of the team council, adjudging the council meeting to be the most proactive and hardworking administrator with his team in the council, to work and take decisions for the Common good of the people in the local government.
