ville-comme lieu

I don't know what this could mean in the following sentence:

D'autres villages ont été choisis pour participer à des «Réunions de responsabilisation», au cours desquelles les coordonnateurs de projet comptaient publiquement pour l'utilisation des fonds du gouvernement dans un lieu de ville-comme lieu.

Other villages were chosen to participate in "Accountability Meetings," during which project coordinators accounted publicly for the use of government funds in a place of town-as place.

Thank you for your help!

    Here is the previous sentence:
    Quelques chefs de village impliqués dans la construction des routes ont été informés que, à la fin du projet, ils seraient visités par les vérificateurs publics.

    And the next sentence:
    Les villageois recevraient des formulaires anonymes pour greffer.

    Thank you.

    This text has not been written by a native French speaker, it's perhaps even a translation. It is not possible to be sure about what the author wanted to say, my advice would be to get rid of it. "...during which project coordinators accounted publicly for the use of government funds" doesn't need any other precision.
