Residents of three Nong­prue communities voiced complaints about public-property encroachment, poor storm drainage, small trash cans and juvenile delinquents during a meeting with sub-district officials.

The meeting was the latest in a series of Nongprue’s “economic sustainability project” meetings where officials visit communities to organize services and hear grievances.

Deputy Clerk Ancharee Kamchan and department chiefs started the session by briefing residents of the Sutthawat, Nongmaikaen and Mabyailia communities about Nongprue’s four-year development plan and which projects have been completed and which have not begun yet.

Complete projects included construction and road surfacing of sois Banlang 17, Ban Lungdith and Nongmaikaen 8/1 and Marbyalia 34.

Residents then got their turn and complained about encroachment by vendors on Soi Marbyalia 53 and Soi Nongmaikaen 4. They also griped that a waterworks-improvement project begun in their community was suspended and has no signs of being completed.

They also wanted a resolution of the flooding problem on Soi Marbyalia 53 caused by poor flood drainage over a 200-meter distance. They complained that the garbage cans supplied to Krungthai Village are too small.

Finally, residents complained about the poor education given to area teens, saying many are illiterate or don’t possess the knowledge they should have at their age. As a result, many get involved in gangs and crime.

Residents also used the opportunity to register for welfare payments, register newly born children, get help marketing their locally made products and get information on health care and tourism.
