The Prestea Huin- Valley Municipal has hosted the Western Regional budget hearing organized by the Regional Coordinating Council. The districts which participated included Prestea Huni-Valley Municipal, Tarkwa Nsuaem Municipal, Wassa Amenfi West Municipal, Wassa Amenfi Central District, and Wassa Amenfi East Municipal.

The Municipal Chief Executive Dr. Isaac Dasmani in his welcome address to mark the opening ceremony of the budget hearing disclosed that the people of PHMA are hospitable, and hoped that they will enjoy their stay.

He added that the composite budget hearings are organized at the regional level for MMDAs to prevent their assembly budget to be finetuned before they are approved to be submitted to the ministry. However, he added that, due to the covid 19 pandemic and in an effort of bringing the budget hearing closer to the people, MMDAS have been grouped at one MMDA. This initiative will allow people at the district level to have a feel of the budget hearing.

He suggested the continuation of such initiative and if possible, to be rotated to other MMDAs. He was happy PHMA was hosting the program. He assured them of adequate preparation to make the program a success. He also assured them that the budget committee of PHMA together with relevant institutions has gone through the required process for preparing the budget.

The regional budget analyst said he was grateful to the assembly members, MMDCEs, chiefs, etc. for supporting the program. He said the budget is their document but they are only there to assess it to see if it is in line with the government’s policies. He urged them not to take anything personal but rather take note and work on it so that it goes through the various approval stages before it is submitted.

Mr. Stephen Kwabena Dankwa, the Municipal Budget Analyst for Prestea Hun- Valley Municipal presented the budget of the Prestea Huni- Valey Municipal on behalf of the Municipal Chief Executive.
