Mr. Paul Coffey has been appointed as the new Acting City Clerk to the Honiara City Council.

The appointment came after the the untimely death of the previous clerk John Leigh last month.

Mr. Coffey says that construction of toilet blocks, completion of the Kukum market project and providing rubbish collections on a weekly basis are some of the main issues he will be addressing while in office.

He stated that the upcoming Pacific Arts Festival will put a number of demands on the council at this time but they are ready to provide assistance.

Mr Coffey said he is very honored to take up the appointment.
