Similarly, Municipal Commissioners should hold public hearing in at least four wards or zones every month.

District-level officers have been asked to communicate and publicise the dates of these inspections at least three days before by using traditional methods as well as via social media so that a large number of people can participate in the local hearings conducted by these officers.
