KOZHIKODE: Dealing with septic waste would be one of the main issues the City would be facing in the next few years, warned Kozhikode Mayor Thottathil Raveendran. He added that people’s co-operation was required for the implementation of a proper sewerage project in the City. He was addressing the meet the press programme organised by Calicut Press Club in City on Monday.

“The sewerage project was envisaged during my previous term as the mayor. We planned to implement it in three phases. However we could not even complete the first phase due to many issues including a protest from the people,” he said.

 

The Mayor added that he would take strict action to end all kinds of corruption at political and bureaucratic levels in the civic body. “We will install CCTV cameras at major spots of the Corporation office and are hoping to provide computers on all desks in order to encourage transparency through introducing online systems,” he said. He also urged the public to stop giving money to get things done. “If anyone has any complaint about the officials who are not doing things in the right way, they can approach me,” he added.

 

The Mayor said that he would call meetings of all departments separately and convey his intentions. “There are many middlemen roaming in the Corporation office to get things done especially the building permits. Such people should be ousted from the office. The Corporation will call a separate meeting of architects as part of this,” he added.

Mr Raveendran said that the Corporation would appoint a night watchman at Aravind Ghosh road to prevent waste dumping.   The West Hill Plastic Recycling Plant would start functioning soon and the Corporation would take action as required by law against the Hospital which dumped waste on the road. He also added that he would review his predecessors’ decision of the seating arrangement in the Corporation Council Hall where the official was sitting along with elected representatives on the dais.
