Sangolda sarpanch Premanand Kochrekar has said the Town and Country Planning department has given consent to construct a new panchayat ghar in place of the existing one. 
Addressing members of the Gram Sabha on Sunday, Kochrekar said the new panchayat will be constructed from funds of Rs 1.7 crore received from the state government under the  Deendayal Panchayat Raj Infrastructure Development Scheme.
Panchayat secretary Pooja Gawas presented before the gram sabha the revised budget for the year 2017-18.
On going through the budget, residents observed a sizeable difference between the opening balance as on April 1, 2017 shown in the earlier budget and the revised budget presented now. They also noted a difference between income and expenditure. 
The panchayat secretary agreed to consult a chartered accountant and present the corrected revised budget in the next gram sabha meeting. 
Sandra Fernandes brought to the panchayat’s notice that a well at Livrament is close to the road, wiith no protection wall around it. She suggested that the panchayat construct a protection wall to prevent any mishap, especially at night. 
The issues regarding parking of vehicles on the road near the school, dumping of garbage, construction of internal roads were also discussed in the gram sabha. 
The gram sabha witnessed heated arguments over the construction of a high compound wall by a resident and his fixed kiosk. 
Sarpanch Premanand Kochrekar mentioned that the permissible height for the compound wall is 1.5 meters.
He stated that the panchayat would inspect of the compound wall and action will be taken if not found as per rules, adding that the panchayat has given licenses only for movable kiosks and not for fixed kiosks in the
