She conducted a teleconference with the officials from various departments here on Tuesday. She said that debris and also uprooted trees in every ward should be cleared and immediately shifted to the dumping yard. She has asked officials from Engineering Department, Urban Community Development (UCD), Town Planning, Public Health departments to coordinate with each other and organise the drive. Malaria department staff, sachivalayam secretaries and volunteers should visit every house in their wards and create awareness about possible spread of seasonal diseases after the rains, she said.
