She said the Assembly takes strong exception to the non-payment of rates by property owners and ratepayers in the metropolis.

She further cautioned the recalcitrant defaulters to settle their bills before the end of the year or face legal action.

The first-ever female chief executive for the national capital issued this warning to revenue officers when she led a team of revenue collectors on a special revenue mobilization drive in Accra.

“The Assembly would not hesitate to haul the defaulters before the courts if they fail to comply by the directives to pay up by the end of the year”, she warned.

The former MP disclosed that huge sums of revenue that could be used to undertake development projects to better the lives of city dwellers are locked up with some property and business owners in the metropolis.

She admonished all defaulters to settle all their indebtedness or risk being prosecuted.

She warned that the Assembly was not going to sit aloof for the defaulters to have a field day in the city.
