BOMDILA: A meeting on innovative budget proposals for West Kameng district was held at district headquarters Bomdila on Friday. Inviting need-based proposals, Deputy Commissioner Sonal Swaroop said that innovative and factors of genuineness should be the yardsticks for presentation of the budget proposals by the respective departments. However, proposals for boundary walls, how emergent in nature it may be, would not be taken up, she said.
While discussing and deliberating on waste management issues, the DC was highly appreciative of the Material Recovery Facility (MRF) initiated by the Department of Tourism at Thembang – the World Heritage village under Dirang circle in the district – which was declared as zero waste heritage village.
The MRF is a centre where various bio-degradable and non-degradable objects are brought and segregated by a team of local ladies on daily basis.
All the administrative officers and HODs of the district participated in the meeting where numbers of proposals were examined and taken up for onward submission to the State Government.
Later, the District Disaster Preparedness & Planning meeting was held where the departments concerned dwelt on the preparedness level to deal with any eventuality, especially during the monsoon season as the district is prone to landslides and flash floods.
