In a bid to clear blockage of drains, DMC sanitation in-charge Lepshi Ao has issued notice to owners who had constructed buildings after filling up existing drains in the city. In the notice, the DMC said those portions of the buildings which created obstacles for drains, would have to be demolished.
Lepshi revealed that several proposals were received, to clear the entire drainage and sewerage systems in Dimapur. In the event of non-cooperation, he said the DMC would be compelled to review building permits of those buildings.
Aprons for chefs
In another notice, the DMC advisory board has directed all restaurants and hotels that all chefs/cooks in the establishments would have to compulsorily wear aprons. Further, the DMC asked owners of these establishments to provide proper water filers and also keep dustbins. The directive was issued after a meeting held between the Hotel and Restaurant Owners Association (HRA) and DMC advisory members consisting of sanitation-in-charge Lepshi Ao, Er Vikholie Nienu and rate control member Tokheli Kikon at Hotel Saramati, Saturday.
At the meeting, members of the HRA listed out their grievances on several issues including the rate of food items.
While agreeing to look into the problems, Er.Vikholie Nienu informed that the DMC would inspect hygiene maintenance and other basic services in hotels and restaurants. He also asked HRA members not to misconstrue the DMC directive.
DMC advisory board members also assured it would take up the matter of hawkers and open vendors at the meeting of the Board.
