Madanapalle Sub-Collector Chevvuru Hari Kiran took charge as new Municipal Commissioner here on Tuesday and the outgoing Municipal Commissioner G. Suvarna Pandadas has been posted as Commissioner of Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation.
The new Commissioner arrived at the office at around 12.30 p.m. after paying a visit to Kanaka Druga temple atop Indrakeeladri here.
Speaking to mediapersons, Mr. Kiran said that he required some time to understand the staff pattern, VMC finances and projects being implemented before he set his priorities.
The priorities would be chalked out shortly while sanitation and drinking water supply continue to be focal points in the Corporation, he said.
The pending and ongoing projects would be cleared immediately, he observed. It was necessary to speed up and complete the projects that were in the final stages as the general elections were slated in 2014, he added.
