    2009 I return to Liberia for the first time after 29 years and found Monrovia a vertual cesspool of garbage, stench, and chaos. Upon my recent return visit February 2011, the City of Monrovia is much more cleaner, orderly and smelling a little better. There certainly is more work to be done to restore order to the city and much credit is to be gien to the honorable mayor Mary T. Broh for her determination to bring Monrovia on a standard that all Liberian will be proud to have a city that is CLEAN AND ORDERLY.
    I wish to congratulate the Mayor, the City Council and the very able city staff for their hard work and determination to make Monrovia, a first class city on the west coast of Africa.

    Madam Mayor,

    I would like to commend you on the terrific job you are doing cleaning up the city and making it beautiful once again.

    I read recently in the newspaper that MCC was conducting an EIA for a proposed Wheintown landfill. I’m wondering if this EIA and other documents could be posted on this website.

    Thank you for taking time from your busy schedule to address our questions and comments.

      Wheintown is the existing landfill.
      Others are coming. The EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) project manager will send details to us soon, as the consultants haven’t yet advised. This is part of our EMUS (Emergency Monrovia Urban Sanitation) Project and we will keep you up to date.

    Mayor Broh,
    Are you still ACTING MAYOR or a confirmed MAYOR??

      Happy to hear you on this side too. I think this Mary Broh is wonderful and spectacularly terrific. Base on these qualities, she deserves confirmation.
