The Municipal Corporation will explore the possibility of starting a helpline where residents can call for removal of construction waste. A discussion on the issue along with that of sanitation and water supply was held at the meeting of the Federation of Sectors Welfare Association Chandigarh (FOSWAC) Sunday.
A memorandum was submitted to Mayor Subhash Chawla by members of the association highlighting problems like shortage of drinking water, poor sanitation condition, removal of green patches due to excessive laying of paver blocks, lack of basic amenities in phase III sectors and parking problems in market and residential areas among other things.
Chawla stated that improving sanitation, removal of construction waste and ensuring better water supply would be on his list of priorities this year. He informed that during the last few years the MC has developed 3500 parks and it finds it difficult to maintain these parks due to shortage of gardners and other staff. The Resident Welfare Associations were asked to take over the maintenance of the parks for which funds would be provided by the MC.
About the concerns expressed by members of the association about installation of paver blocks and widening of V-6 roads, Chawla said that this work does not take place without the recommendation of the area councillor. He said that if the residents have reservations about installation then there is a communication gap between them and the area councillor.
