Boring job to be readvertised
Tribune News Service

SAS Nagar, January 31
The Municipal Council here has failed to elicit any response from private firms to undertake the work of boring three new tubewells in the township. According to a decision taken at the monthly general body meeting of the Council held here today, the notice calling for tenders will be readvertised as no one had responded to the last advertisement published on January 7, 2003.

This will be the third time that the advertisement regarding boring of tubewells will be repeated. The first time over when the offer was made in November 2002, only two firms had applied to undertake the work for the Council. But the Council had found their rates too high. Council officials believe that the two firms who had responded to the advertisement the first time have joined hands and are thus not offering competitive rates.

The Council has also now decided to separate the work of boring the tubewell from other associated activities and call for tenders separately for these functions. The three tubewells will be providing drinking water to residential and commercial areas in phase XI, Phase X and Industrial Area phase IX.

Among some of the other decisions that were taken at the meeting here today, the MC has given permission to the Lions Club to construct tin sheds at the cremation grounds in Phase VI and a go ahead for the construction of an octroi post on Kajehri road at the earliest. All other items on the agenda were also cleared.
