VIJAYAWADA: Municipal Commissioner J Nivas instructed the officials concerned to issue show cause notices to the ground level staff in 37 and 39 divisions for their failure to prevent water leakages and maintain sanitation.
The civic body chief on Monday inspected Bhavanipuram, Kabela and Urmila Subbarao Nagar areas and inquired with the residents about the maintenance of drains and sanitation.
