The funds would be utilised for repairing badly damaged roads, improving water supply, drainage and for protection of open spaces of the municipality, he said.

“If there are no works to be taken up in any particular ward, then the works in other wards will be taken up,'' he said and asked the ward members to submit their proposals immediately.
