Mangaluru, March 01, 15:  Mayor Mahabala Marla informed  there is no change in the decision of the council in hiking SAS. The council, in July 2014, had nullified a decision of the administrator on hiking property tax by 15 per cent. As per Section 109 (A) of The Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976, rates of property tax under SAS should be revised upwards once every three years.

Kudcemp matters  : The ruling and opposition members took the mayor to task for failing to convene a meeting to discuss Kudcemp works and building bylaws.   Mayor said he had asked the council secretary to make arrangements for the meeting to discuss on Kudcemp works.  Commissioner Hephsiba Rani Korlapati said that she has spoken to KUIDFC MD. She said that it needed to prepare a report on the work in progress so the meeting was delayed. The meeting will be convened in the month of March.

The mayor stated that , if officials fail to convene a special meeting on Kudcemp work within a month, then the council will have to order for a probe into Kudcemp works.  The issue on delay in the work and incomplete work should also be brought to the notice of the government.
