Owensgrove Commissioner Etta M. Dunn said Firestone Liberia’s road repair project is an undertaking worth commendation from every well-meaning citizen of the district
According to Commissioner Dunn, the roads have been in deplorable condition for the past several years, obstructing the flow of vehicles in and out of the district.

The Owensgrove Commissioner then appealed to Firestone Liberia to extend its developmental initiatives to both the Administration building and the Public School of Owensgrove by renovating the two facilities.

Last week, road repair workers from Firestone Liberia’s engineering department became actively involved with grading the major roads that link various communities in Owensgrove to other parts of Grand Bassa County.
Recently, as part of its educational outreach program, Firestone Liberia donated an assortment of supplementary textbooks to several Owensgrove schools.
