With health and hygiene high on agenda, MCG set to meet on Monday

Gurugram: Agenda for the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) house meeting scheduled on February 3 has been finalised. The meeting will be held at John Hall at 11 am on Monday.

During the meeting, the MCG will discuss issues including setting up of a dispensary in each ward, composting plant in every high-rise building, revenue generation from advertising on water ATM.

Apart from this, the house will discuss maintenance of the parks and community centers which has become a bone of contention between councillors and RWAs in the past few weeks.

Setting up dispensaries to provide health facilities to the poor and weaker sections in all the 35 wards is among the key issues that will be discussed during the house meeting. At present, the city has only one civil hospital which is not enough to meet the healthcare demand of entire population.

Decentralisation of solid waste management in the city and setting up of a compost plant in every high-rise building to addressing the issue of overburdened Bandhwadi landfill site, the two issues are expected to figure prominently during the discussion. 

Also, the revenue generation from advertisement on water ATM will be raised as most of these water ATMs are not functional in many parts of the city.

MCG councillors have highlighted issues confronting their area. Councilor Rimple Yadav of Ward No. 5 will seek removal of encroachment from a water body spread across two acres of land in Udyog Vihar area near Jwala Mill, along with installation of rainwater harvesting system and construction of multi-level parking.

Ashwini Sharma, councillor of Ward 23, will request for carrying out development works which include sanitation and cleaning of ward, repairing of sewer manhole covers, minor repair work on park boundary wall etc. 

Similarly, Kuldeep Yadav, councillor of Ward 29, will request for the cleanliness of vacant plots in HSVP sectors.

RS Rathee, councillor of Ward 34 will request that the charges for using community centers should not be exceed Rs 5,100 per day.
