People should abide by rules, says B. Ramanjaneyulu
He orders closure of belt shops in hill-slope area
VISAKHAPATNAM: Asserting that visits to wards will be taken up regularly to solve civic problems and rules implemented strictly, Municipal Commissioner B. Ramanjaneyulu has exuded confidence that a visible improvement can be made in two months.
While staff laxity and negligence were partly responsible people also should abide by the rules and follow regulations, particularly with regard to construction.
The objective was to provide access to facilities available in the core area of the city to the peripheral areas and the panchayats merged forming GVMC with particular emphasis on drinking water, sanitation and lighting, he said.
During his visit to ward 37 in Kancharapalem area, the Commissioner directed staff to prepare proposals for widening the road at the fire station.
The slabs on drains should be removed and the cost collected from owners.
Instead of parking cars in front of houses, a parking lot should be arranged and user charges collected from the owners, he said.
He ordered revetment for a stormwater drain abutting the port trust wall for easy flow of water.
Memo for official
Mr. Ramanjaneyulu ordered that a three-storey building obstructing the flow of water be demolished.
With his queries on another building in foundation stage not eliciting a satisfactory reply from the building inspector Sai, he directed that a charge memo be issued to him.
On a complaint from women, he ordered closure of belt-shops (illegal liquor outlets) in the hill-slope area within three days.
He was angry with the sanitary inspector for not being aware of the shops in spite of working for eight months there.
Shifting of a transformer at Jagjivanramnagar closer to a school should be stopped taking it up with the authorities concerned, he said.
All sanitary tools in a state of disuse should be auctioned by July 15, he ordered after noticing such tools at the dispensary there.
The Commissioner was accompanied by corporator K. Vengala Rao, Additional Commissioner S. Krishna Murthy, Chief Engineer B. Jayarami Reddy, Chief City Planner D. Venkataratnam, Chief Medical Officer (Health) D.Abbulu, Assistant Commissioner K. Hariprasad, Assistant Medical Officer Sanjiv Kumar and Assistant City Planner Vijaybhaskar.
