VELLORE: As many as 63 resolutions were passed in the zone-III councillors review meeting held at the old corporation office on Thursday. The issue of water scarcity was raised in the meeting, where councillors urged zonal president S Kumar and Corporation officials to visit every ward once in a week and conduct meeting for councillors once in 15 days.
Forty-fifth ward councillor V T Dharmalingam said, “Water and drainage problems are worrying factors in the ward. Many people have encroached Corporation land and built compound walls due to which the civic body was not able to clean the drainage. Officials should look into this matter seriously.”
Thirty-fourth ward councillor K Srinivasa Gandhi said,“Out of the 60 wards, my ward has the least population but we don’t get regular water supply. “ He said, people were waiting for more than 15 days to get birth, death and other certificates. He charged that this was happening only in zone III whereas in other three zones people were receiving the certificates in a day or two.
Responding, town planning engineer M Kannan said,“There is a server problem in our zone. So, we couldn’t issue the certificates. The problem will be rectified within two or three days.” J Shanmugham, 44th ward councillor raised the issue of installing PVC water tanks in his ward. Responding, S Kumar, zone III president said, the tanks had arrived and they would be soon installed in 44th ward.
