CITY Rangers in Mt Hagen, Western Highlands, yesterday pledged to make the city cleaner, safer and beautiful , with a timely boost from bemobile.
The city rangers or “town interims” as they are commonly known, are the staff behind the beautification and cleanliness of the city, and were the proud recipients of a new set of uniforms.
The uniforms feature the bemobile logo on the front, with “Hagen Kona Kai” meaning Hagen is a beautiful place, printed on the back.
The company’s Highlands regional director Andrew Riddell, who presented the uniforms, said bemobile was embarking on a partnership between bemobile and Mt Hagen City council.
Mr Riddell announced that bemobile would engage reserve police officers to assist the city rangers in order to make the city a safer place to live and visit.
He said pick pocketing and shop lifting were strife in the city and because of this, bemobile was looking at upholding law and order in the city.
He said bemobile would also support the town with new rubbish dumps to be put up in parts of the city to help minimise the work.
Mr Riddell praised the city rangers, who he said under the guidance of city manager, Victor Megao, were striving to improve the cleanliness of the city and bemobile was looking at working in partnership to promote the Hagen Kona Kai concept.
Mr Riddell said that bemobile was looking forward in assisting with future based concepts to help improve the image of the country’s third city.
Meanwhile, Mr Megao thanked bemobile for the boost, saying the uniforms would not only give them (city rangers) their identity, but also heighten their commitment in maintaining the outlook of the city.
He pledged that his team would promote the Hagen Kona Kai concept by carrying out their roles more effectively.
