Busia Revenue Collectors will operate in one banking hall starting October 1 in order improve service delivery and revenue collection, Chief Officer in the Officer of the Governor Ezekiel Okwach has said.
Speaking when he opened a County Revenue Enhancement Strategy workshop at Hotel Levantes in Amagoro on Tuesday, Okwach said the County will hire a banking hall in the short run before the construction of its own facility.
He told the revenue officers from various departments to profile each sector of revenue streams within their jurisdiction to ensure they are in database.
Okwach told the revenue staff to change Busia County upside down in terms of development, service delivery and revenue collection so as to sustain the County Government.
” It is possible that the County can delay to receive disbursements from the national government, thus failing to pay salaries for its staff . With good revenue collection strategy the county can pay salaries from local revenue,” he said.
The CO said the Security Enforcement Officers to be employed by the County Government will help support the staff in revenue collection, adding that the quest to improve revenue collection will bear fruits.
