Gbarnga City Major Lucia Herbert has announced plans to build the first City Hall for the county. Speaking to the media recently in Gbarnga, Madam Herbert said that the council and several stakeholders were collaborating to see that the hall was built.

She claims that construction of the City Hall will be her main project while she is in office. The City Hall project, according to Madam Herbert, is crucial to the county’s transition and its residents.

The Administrative Building has been used for national events by the public and county administrations without the City Corporation assuming ownership. This long-standing problem will be resolved with the construction of the City Hall, which will also provide a special location for local government and community activities.
