Deputy mayor explains luxurious building
Zhang Daojie, deputy mayor of Hailun, responded to questions raised by a report that the poverty-stricken county overbuilt its luxurious office building at a cost of 100 million yuan, Dongbei Net reported. Zhang said that the building conforms to regulations because only an appropriate number of its offices will be used by the county. The offices left over after different departments move to the new building will be sold at auction to the public. Zhang added that any income derived from the sales will be used to improve the lives of impoverished people.
