Construction of an office complex for Iganga municipal council has finally kicked off.

The project to construct the facility had stalled for the last 18 years as a result of lack of funds.

The town clerk, Iganga municipal council, Ayoub Kisubi said in an interview at his offices  on Wednesday that  the facility is expected to accommodate over 100 members of staff who have previously been sharing office premises.

Kisubi said construction of the four storied office premises is expected to be completed within the next three years with the first phase of roofing the entire building.

The entire construction project is to cost a sum of shillings 150 million.

Kisubi said councilors had recently passed a motion to purchase a car at sh50m for the town clerk, Ayoub Kisubi but he declined and instead opted to divert the money towards completion of the building.

He said employees have previously been using some temporary office premises which are in a dilapidated state yet not spacious enough to accommodate the big number of staff.

The mayor Iganga municipal council, David Balaba urged councilors sensitise locals on the benefits of paying taxes in a bid to increase on the revenue collection thus improve on service delivery.

Balaba said construction of  the  state of art   office building is as a result of the good working relationship between councilors and technical staff at Iganga municipal council.

He hailed the town clerk, Ayoub Kisubi for spear heading development in Iganga municipality by constructing roads that had stalled for the past few years.

“We have had almost eight town clerks previously but we have never had any person who had helped steer development in this area like this one “he said.
