Prepare work plan for better amenities
DIVISIONAL COMMISSIONER, Dr Lalit Verma, has directed the Nagar Nigam Administrator Amrit Abhijat and Municipal Commissioner Gaya Prasad to prepare a work plan for road construction, repairs, drainage, sanitation, tree plantation and street-light arrangements in the city.
Addressing a meeting at his camp office here on Tuesday the Divisional Commissioner said that since Rs 1.43 crore has been made available for these purposes the NN should utilise the available funds judiciously so that better amenities could be provided to citizens.
He said that half of the amount would be spent on purchase of loader/ dumper/ container and trucks, 25 per cent on widening of roads, tree plantation and roads free from potholes, ten per cent on drainage and 5 per cent on street-lights.
He asked for deployment of sufficient sanitary employees in the city so that garbage could be picked by them from every household daily. To ensure that work was being carried out successfully the officials should make surprise inspections. Cleaning in the city should be carried out on the pattern of metropolitan cities, he advised.
He said the biggest problems being faced by the city now are the encroachment, illegal construction and overflowing of damaged drains.
Meanwhile, Administrator and District Magistrate Amrit Abhijat took a strong exception to the condition of Nagar Nigam workshop situated at Khusrobagh here.
During his sudden inspection to the workshop he found apathetic condition there and immediately ordered the incharge Dr Arun Kumar to auction 80 per cent of obsolete things lying at the workshop by April 15,2006. Administrator also ordered to replace both the petrol pumps of Indian Oil into electronic pumps.
