As part of measures to outline activities for the end of year 2017 to the Sand Winners Association members and also account for their leadership, the Chairman of the Association, Mr. P. K.Donor, has stated that a consultative agreement was proposed last year to enforce members to acquire Identification Cards.
He noted that as the laws and regulations of the association requires payment of fines by all members; the association has to ensure members conduct themselves properly according to laws of the association.
Mr. P. K. Donor revealed that as part of the association’s corporate social responsibilities, the outfit was able to send four trips of sand to the prisons to rebuild their collapsed wall and six trips to the central police station to fix similar problem as well as six trips to the GPS regional office in Kumasi.
Speaking to stakeholders during the association’s end of year consultative council meeting, the chairman observed that plans have far advanced to widening the operational scope of the outfit of which seven regional permits have been renewed as part of plans to intensify operations during the course of the year 2018.
He added that the association will this year compel members to pay the sand winning levy.
Mr. Eric P. K Donor averred that proposals were raised that all Tipper Trucks must be branded with the association’s label/sticker to draw lines between the association Trucks and others.
This rebranding, he said, will include the names, mobile contacts and I.D Cards numbers to properly regulate their activities.
