KOMENDA-EDINA-EGUAFO-ABREM MUNICIPAL ASSEMBLY
Service delivery over the years in the Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS), Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) has often been criticized of lacking transparency and openness and also characterized by the cumbersome procedures. This, most often than not, lead to lack of trust and confidence in the system and the perception of civil servants being corrupt.
Owing to these, the Local Government Service has therefore embarked on a mission to improve the quality-of-service delivery in Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs), through simplifying processes, clarifying rules and procedures and setting time frames for prompt completion of tasks in order to render MMDAs more transparent to the public.
This service charter has been developed to provide information on how the general public can benefit from services provided by the KEEA Municipal Assembly.
The vision of the Komenda-Edina-Eguafo Abrem (KEEA) Municipal Assembly is to become a model of transparent and participatory local governance institution in Ghana; where the quality local service delivery is the hallmark.
To utilize available resources effectively and efficiently in order to promote a sustainable development by providing a strong leadership based on commitment to fiscal responsibility, quality services, openness, and active grassroots participation to ensure equitable development in all sectors of the municipality within the confines of good governance and security.
