Coimbatore, Nov 19: The Coimbatore Corporation's South Zone
office gets a permanent office, next to its temporary location at
the Travellers' Bungalow. Located on Huzur Road, the 22,000 sq.ft.
building has been constructed at Rs 2 crore. But, after a 10-year
wait for a permanent place, its intended inauguration during Chief
Minister M. Karunanidhi's visit on Nov 16 did not take place
because of a mix up. The South Zone office functioned from the
Corporation's main office at Town Hall for some time, when the
other three zones had their own buildings in their respective
areas. It then moved into the Travellers' Bungalow on Huzur Road
after a proposal to construct its office opposite Koniamman Temple
Sources in the Corporation say that after concerted efforts to put up a spacious office, the inauguration attempt on Sunday soured up what should have been an event memorable for the right reasons.
