Provincial Administrator Tailevu, Joseva Rokonai has called on the people of Tailevu to use their resources and i qoliqoli (traditional fishing ground) wisely.

Speaking at the Tailevu Provincial Meeting in Bau Island yesterday he also advised the people to protect their resources.

He said the district representatives understood the importance of having development and all of these began from home and the village.

“The whole meaning of this is to improve the standard of living, to allocate budgets for every needed project and to also look into the benefits of the life of the people and even create employment and start up small businesses for those interested.”

Other issues raised at the meeting included the need to have further budget consultations and district or provincial budget submissions to be handed straight to the Finance Office.

Tokatoka district representative Rusiate Korovusere said it would give them a much better opportunity to talk to the Minister of Finance about their needs.

Projects in Tailevu include:

Dawasamu nursing station – to be completed by the end of this month and costs $120, 527.05

Natogadravu Bridge yet to be completed

Namata Village access ($1,593,000) yet to be completed

Kiuva Kaba peninsula road $3, 2999, 360- under construction

Natila access road ($535,000) under construction

Kaba Peninsula: will boost supply to Natakaviga reservoir and supply Dromuna, Vatani villages and schools and will boost pressure to Kiuva, Dakua and Burenitu with a cost of $5million. Should be completed by May next year.
