KOTA KINABALU: Kota Marudu District Council members have been urged to find new sources and ways to boost the council's coffers.

Speaking to the new Kota Marudu District Council member line-up for the 2023-2025 term on Monday (March 27), Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Dr Joachim Gunsalam said members must work as a team and become creative in generating ideas to improve their quality of service.

"Your fresh ideas must be in line with the 'Sabah Maju Jaya (SMJ) Halatuju' development plan, which strives for planned and strategic execution to achieve the growth goals of the Kota Marudu district.

"We want programmes implemented by the district council to empower Kota Marudu to be on par with other districts," said Gunsalam, who is also Sabah Local Government and Housing Minister.

However, he said that any decisions made must be in line with the regulations and existing policies.

"My hope is the council members have good rapport with council staff to ensure the best performance in serving the people.

"We want the stakeholders' satisfaction to be maintained and the district council services to remain relevant," he added.

In general, Gunsalam said he hoped all district council members state-wide proved their commitment in supporting any plans and programmes outlined in their respective district councils to improve their constituency.

Meanwhile during the ceremony, he also presented letters of appointment to 17 Kota Marudu District Council members which was a mix of new faces and re-appointments.
