VELLORE: The Ambur Municipality has decided to set up an Amma Unavagam in the bus- stand in the town.
A resolution to this effect was adopted at the Council meeting, presided over by the chairperson Sangeetha Balasubramani, on Friday.
Earlier in the ordinary Council meeting, the Councillors requested the State government to appoint women and child specialists at the Government Hospital, Ambur.
They said the students were facing a delay in the issue of community, residence and their parents’ income certificates from the Revenue department that were required for the admission.
The Municipality should take up the issue with the district administration to speed up the issue of these certificates. The Councillors said the taluk office in Ambur was in the grip of brokers and middlemen who fleeced people for the issue of various certificates. The Municipality must take action against such persons, they added.
The other demands included construction of public toilets in Samy nagar area, checkdam across Kanaru in Vannathurai area to meet the water requirement of the Ambur Municipality, catching of stray dogs and establishment of a playground in Municipal Middle school at Panneerselvam Nagar.
