MMC chairperson boasts of healthy financials

Vasco, Nov 14 (TOI): Mormugao municipal council (MMC) has been enjoying a healthy financial period over the last two years under the governance of the new council.

It currently holds in its treasury Rs 20.40 crore, MMC chairperson Deepak Naik said.

Naik was speaking at a function organized to commemorate the completion of two years by the current council. Vasco MLA Carlos Almeida said, "The council aims at full-fledged development of Vasco town. By January 26, I have asked them to make the town garbage-free. Door-to-door garbage collection has been 90% succesful."

Almeida said the demand for a fish market at Vasco will soon be a reality. "Few politicians, for their own selfish motive, have been instigating fishermen to oppose the complex. If needed, the police force will be utilized. But, we won't tolerate any hindrances to constructing the new complex," he said.

Naik recalled that when he took over the council in 2015, the staff had struck work for non-payment of salaries.

They had to break the fixed deposit and pay their salaries. The next month's salary was paid by recovering dues and taking the recovery seriously, Rs 8.90 crore was recovered.

The council, even though Grade A, was getting Octroi of Rs 1.40 crore, but Almeida took up the issue in the assembly and now they will be getting Octroi of Rs 5.20 crore.

The council has also sent a Rs 2.50 crore proposal, under solid waste management, for replacing old vehicles used in garbage collection. It has ordered three compactors, three open trucks, two cab pickup trucks, one open tipper and other requirements.
