NADI Town Council interim special administrator Praveen Bala is determined to continue improvement projects in the Jet Set Town.

And first on his agenda is a series of meetings with council staff, the community and business stakeholders to get a better understanding of the capital projects undertaken by his predecessors.

He said he would collaborate with all relevant stakeholders to ensure capital works were successfully completed.

Mr Bala, who is also special administrator for the Lautoka City Council, said an issue he would look into was flooding within the town.

"The flooding issue will be at the top of my priority list. It is an ongoing issue and a solution will not happen overnight, but we intend to address it and hopefully bring about some improvements."

Mr Bala also called for the support of stakeholders and residents.

"I will not be able to carry out the role without the assistance of the business community and the citizens of Nadi.

"I am urging them to please help me in carrying out my role as interim administrator of the Nadi Town Council, and I hope we can all work together for a better future for Nadi."
