The Municipal Corporation (MC) will now take steps for the safety of commuters during the foggy winter ahead. Civic body officials said a new cattle shed would be constructed at Asmanpur village where stray animals roaming in the city would be accommodated. The plan for shifting stray animals was being prepared, they added.
The MC will also affix reflectors on necks of stray cattle in the city. It will help commuters recognise stray cattle from a distance at night.
Mayor Sanjeev Kumar Sharma said the new cattle shed would be beneficial for the city. All stray cattle would be shifted to the 15.5 acre site taken on lease by the MC, he added.
“The cow cess collected by the MC will also be utilised for the management of cattle shed,” he said.
The Mayor also held a meeting with officials of the Rural and Panchayat Development Department.
Officials said cattle sheds in the city had all provisions, but they apparently lacked space due to which stray animals roamed on city roads.
