BARIO: Ke­labit com­mu­nity lead­ers here have called on the au­thor­i­ties con­cerned to sta­tion at least one ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer at the Bario Sub-District Of­fice.

They pointed out that the po­si­tion has been va­cant for quite a while, since pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer Baru Tai was pro­moted to Te­lang Usan District Of­fi­cer.

Pe­manca Philip Lakai Tuan pointed out that since then, an ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer has been sent from Miri on day trips, which does not ful­fil the needs of the peo­ple in the sub- district.

He said this to State Leg­isla­tive As­sem­bly Deputy Speaker and Mulu assem­bly­man Datuk Ger­awat Gala dur­ing a com­mu­nity lead­ers’ plan­ning meet­ing re­cently.

Ger­awat voiced his wish for ad­min­is­tra­tive of­fi­cer Joseph Jerum Mail to be posted to the Bario Sub- District Of­fice as the lat­ter un­der­stands the sit­u­a­tion in Bario and is known to lo­cals as he pre­vi­ously served in the Marudi District Of­fice.

He said the post should be filled very soon as the peo­ple need as­sis­tance with var­i­ous ap­pli­ca­tions and re­quests.

Most head­men from the sur­round­ing vil­lages as well as Penghulu Robert­son Bala and Penghulu Freddy Abun Tadam at­tended the meet­ing.
