City mayor seeks suggestions from councillors for budget

Mayor Subhash Chawla has asked the councillors to give suggestions before finalizing the annual budget for 2013-14. The ball has been set rolling for the preparation of the budget. The Mayor has sent letters to the councillors asking them to give their opinions on the areas that need to be focused upon. The councillors have been asked to give their suggestions by January 31. A meeting to plan the budget will be held in the coming days.

Last year, the budget was presented before the general house of the Municipal Corporation without any discussion with the councillors. The councillors had also been told that the budget would have to be passed on the same day as it was the last date for the purpose. The councillors had rued that their opinion should be sought before the budget is finalized.

Suggestions have now been sought from the councillors. These would include suggestions from the councillors about the work that they would want to undertake in their wards. Budgetary allocations would be made accordingly. A grouse of the councillors from the villages and colonies is that sufficient funds are not allocated for their wards. This would also be looked into.
