Posts of Assistant Commissioner and PRO vacant for over three years
Vacancies have adversely affected the civic body's functioning
MANGALORE: The posts of Joint Commissioner, Assistant Commissioner, executive engineer, council secretary, public relations officer, special land acquisition officer and two posts of assistant executive engineer, among others, have been vacant in the Mangalore City Corporation for some time now, according to sources.
The posts of Assistant Commissioner, council secretary and public relations officer have been vacant for more than three years, they said. Some officers have been given additional charge to tide over the situation.
The posts of Joint Commissioner and executive engineer (development cell) fell vacant recently. The Joint Commissioner was transferred as Commissioner of the Mangalore Urban Development Authority, and he continues to hold charge as Joint Commissioner of the civic body.
The civic body created a development cell to exclusively look after road concreting and associated activities proposed to be taken up with the Rs. 100-crore special grant from the State Government. K.N. Vijayaprakash, Commissioner of the corporation, said at the last monthly meeting of the council that the Chief Minister had promised to release the second instalment of the special grant soon.
The executive engineer, who was heading the cell, was transferred to Public Works Department recently.
Mr. Vijayaprakash told The Hindu on Wednesday that now the executive engineer of the Karnataka Urban Infrastructure Development and Finance Corporation (KUIDFC), Maninarayana, has been given additional charge as the cell's executive engineer.
Of the five sanctioned posts of assistant executive engineer (AEE), two are vacant and one AEE was suspended recently.
The health officer and the chief accounts officer will retire by the end of next month. Now, the latter is acting as the Assistant Commissioner and council secretary as well.
The revenue officer has been given additional charge as public relations officer. “If all key posts are filled, we can work more effectively,” he said.
In addition, 17 posts of bill collector, three of sanitary inspector and four of junior engineer are vacant.
