HOLIDAY WITHIN THE CITY OF MONROVIA

Whereas from 1835 to 1922 the City of Monrovia existed as a Municipal Government; and

Whereas the Legislative Act of February 8, 1922 abolished the Municipal status of the City of Monrovia and created in lieu thereof of a Commonwealth District with a Commissioner who served as ceremonial head of the Commonwealth District; and

Whereas the Legislative Act approved July 19, 1973 and published August 16, 1973 repealed the 1922 Act creating the Commonwealth District of Monrovia and created in lieu thereof, the City of Monrovia, Montserrado County has granted it a charter, thus restoring the Municipal status with an elected Mayor of eleven councilors; and

Whereas the first Mayor and eleven councilors of Monrovia City Corporation in 53 years were inaugurated on February 16, 1976 and thus restoring to the residents their right to manage the affairs of their city; and therefore it is ordained by the Common Council of the Monrovia City Corporation,

That the 16th day of February each year be declared a holiday within the City of Monrovia to be known as "Monrovia Day" to generate a sense of identity and to increase the level of awareness of the residents and thus accelerate the pace of development in the city,
