Municipal Commissioner visits TPT Colony and other areas

Development of Brindavan Park in TPT Colony of Sitammadhara should be taken up immediately, Municipal Commissioner M. V. Satyanarayana said during his visit on Wednesday.

As per the wish of residents, repairs to the compound wall should be taken up and a fresh coat of paint given. A shelter for watchman should be provided at the entrance, walking track widened and leakage to water pipes rectified, he said.

Besides lighting, a canopy with plastic sheets for the dais should be taken up. He told Horticulture Assistant Director Damodara Rao to improve greenery at a cost of Rs.2.66 lakh. All the works should be completed by January 28.

UGD leakage in the park should be rectified and the toilets from the social welfare hostel should be linked to UGD, Mr. Satyanarayana told officials. He also reviewed sanitation at Balayya Sastry Layout.

At Bilal Colony atop a hillock at Sitammadhara, he told residents that steps would be taken to improve water supply. Zone Commissioner B. Srirama Murthy participated.

Directive to officials

Mr. Satyanarayana asked Engineering officials not to delay check measurements for works completed in view of the allegation of contractors that the delay was deliberate.

He asked all the executive engineers to give a declaration in two days that no check measurements were pending with them. Committees have been set up to make random check of works and payment of bills and action would be taken for any discrepancy found, he warned officials.
