The former district council had resolved to construct a three storied building, but the current council ordered for a report on status of the building from an independent engineer whose report showed that the building could no longer hold other two floors up, it had spent a long period of time on the ground floor and had become critically destroyed by rains. The council then resolved to have a two storied administration block.
