CIVIC BODY aims to complete A STRING OF LONG pending jobs Within THE NEXT three months

Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation aims to accomplish several unfinished projects and public works within the next three months, before the code of conduct for the corporation elections scheduled in early 2010, comes into effect.
During the Standing Committee meeting held on Thursday, the group, led by newly-elected MLA and standing committee chief, Sandeep Naik, highlighted several health related issues and urged the civic officials to work on them more rigorously. "Normally in October and November, the number of dengue and malaria cases typically rises, but we are adopting better measures to handle the prevention of the disease as well as its treatment this year. The concerned department will conduct more fumigation and cleanliness drives over the next one month to control the spread of disease as well as look into medical facilities and increase them if need be," stated Naik.
Another key priority for the civic body will be to provide 24x7 water to the city as early as possible. "Morbe Dam, which is the main source of water for Navi Mumbai has a capacity of 450mld, but currently we are taking only 320mld. Our efforts will be to supply entire 450mld to the people of Navi Mumbai. As of now, NMMC is already giving 24 hours water supply in some parts of city, but we will try to cover the remaining areas by the end of the next quarter," added Naik.
The civic body's list of works is clearly defined for the next quarter. "From improving the corporation's co-ordination with other state government companies like MTNL and CIDCO, to simultaneously working on the corporation's inter-department co-ordination, it is all going to be part of the new initiative, spearheaded by the standing committee, and executed by the civic administration.
On his part, Municipal Commissioner Vijay Nahata said that the corporation's team will work overtime to curb the mosquito menace in the city and ensure that the cases of malaria and dengue are kept under control.
