Nearly 25 per cent of the sanction will be utilised for solid waste management. A total of Rs 13.75 lakh has been reserved for the purchase of tractor, trolleys, containers, push carts and drums, said Engineer Tejmurthy.

Member Leela said that most of the push carts, which are used to collect garbage in the town, do not have wheels. Women, who collect garbage, find it difficult to push such carts, she added.

A total of Rs 11.46 lakh has been reserved for the installation of street lights and Rs 2.29 lakh will be released for the development of garden. Development works including installation of modern street lights on I G Road and Municipal Office renovation will be taken up at an estimated cost of Rs 2.30 lakh, Tejmurthy added.

Clogged drainages

Members brought to the notice of the Council that the water tank constructed near DCC Bank in the town is not being utilised properly.
