The county assembly has welcomed views from members of the public on the Punguza Mizigo Bill before it finalises debate on it.
The assembly on Tuesday met Thirdway Alliance leader Ekuru Aukot, the sponsor of the bill, and sought clarifications from him on some sections.
"We will start receiving members of the public beginning August 27 who will give their input before we make our stand on the matter known," said Assembly Speaker David Kiplagat.
"Then we will forward our declaration to the Speaker of the National Assembly.”
During the Tuesday session, MCAs focused their discussions on the Bill’s position on political representation. They also discussed the role of the Salaries and Remuneration Commission, and debated how much counties would save with fewer representatives.
“MCAs are excited that development will be directed to the ward level, where more benefits will be derived,” said Kiplagat.
Majority Leader Josphat Lowoi said members were in agreement with the proposals in the bill.
