VELLORE: As many as 100 resolutions, including tenders for developmental works, were passed in the Councillors meeting held at the third zonal office here on Monday.
As usual, water issues were debated at the 40-minute meeting. The Councillors urged the zonal president to visit each ward once a week and hold the Councillor’s meet once in 15 days.
The Councillors complained to the zonal president that the persons who had undertaken tenders for developmental works were not discharging their duties properly. “I urge the president not to give the tenders to the same persons who messed up previous projects,” said P Selvam 35th ward Councillor.
Councillor K Suriyachari of 41st ward said their ward members hadn’t received water for the past 40 days. “People are buying water but what about people who can’t afford it?”, asked the Councillor. He said, tenders for developmental works, which were proposed in the previous meeting hadn’t been completed in his ward.
Many councillors said their ward members were concerned about the Otteri lake water. “This is the main water resource but now the lake is not in a favourable condition as sand-mining is on. We have to stop this and maintain the lake,” said S Raja, 38th ward Councillor. He further said tenders were proposed for the renewal of borewells but still the work had not been started.
Councillors said the newly inaugurated Otteri Park built at a cost of `1.2 crore was not being maintained. Replying to this, the zonal president S Kumar said a new tender would be announced shortly for the maintenance of the park.
After the meeting, a Corporation water manager, who is working in the Old Town area, complained to the zonal president that he was attacked by some youth while supplying water.
