 “Collecting local tax more efficiently means having more resources with which to deliver better services to the residents of Freetown,” added.

She said the Freetown City Council (FCC) will continue to serve its residents by providing solutions to meet the challenges to improve the eleven priority sectors outlined in the Transform Freetown Framework (TFF) document.

She further informed her audience that these priority sectors for development include environmental management, urban planning and housing, education, skills development, job creation with a tourism focus and sanitation.

However, in order to deliver much needed services to the residents of Freetown, FCC needs to increase its revenue generation and collection, she said.

According to Mayor Aki-Sawyer, the new payment system will enable residents in Freetown to pay their local tax of Le5,000 , using an app called Africell Money.

With just five easy steps which begin with dialling the Africell Money short code (*161#) and ends with receiving a confirmation text message, Freetown’s residents can now fulfill their statutory obligation to pay local tax using their mobile phones or an Africell mobile money agent.
