At the meeting, deputy Nguyen Anh Tuan informed local voters of the outcomes of the 15th session of the municipal People’s Council, and the relevant agencies' responses to voters' suggestions in the previous meeting.
The voters raised their concern about a wide range of pressing issues, including congestion at rush hour, environmental pollution and illegal parking in the area.
The implementation of a project on preserving and developing traditional craft villages in association with tourism in Van Phuc Silk Village is one of voters' gravest concerns.
They also expressed their concern over manual reading of electricity meters, causing mistakes in calculating the amount of electricity consumption.
A voter gives his opinion.
Regarding electricity meter reading currently, Tuan said that Hanoi Power Corporation (EVNHANOI) plans to replace mechanical meters with electronic meters by the year’s end.
In case of any questions, customers can contact EVNHANOI Contact Center for detail answers, Tuan stated.
Vice Chairman of Ha Dong District People’s Committee Nguyen Quang Ngoc clarified the voters’ questions at the meeting.
Addressing the event, Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Bich Ngoc acknowledged the voters’ feedback, and asked relevant agencies and local authorities to consider and resolve petitions within their authority.
According to the Chairwoman, at the 15th session, the municipal People’s Committee adopted several important resolutions, including a resolution on financial support for public servants laid off due to restructuring of administrative units at communal levels; resolution on the establishment of new villages and communes at districts and wards in Hanoi in 2020.
Also at the meeting, members of People’s Councils agreed to keep school fees unchanged for public pre-schools, primary, secondary and high schools the same as last year due to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic, Ngoc said.
She expressed her hope that the voters would keep a close watch on the council’s activities.
