The People’s Committee office in Kỳ Anh Town in the central province of Hà Tĩnh cost a whopping VNĐ33 billion (US$1.5 million), and was expected to become a local landmark.
However, rather than housing public officials, some alternative inhabitants have taken shelter: buffaloes and cows.
The new occupants have failed to upkeep the maintenance of the building, and doors, windows and tiles are hanging in disrepair.
Phan Duy Vĩnh, deputy chairman of Kỳ Anh’s People’s Committee, claimed that the state of the building was due to Typhoon Doksuri that hit in September. last year, and that the town did not have the funds for repair work.
In the meantime, the buffaloes and cows can make the most of their new home. — VNS
