Deterrent: An MPSJ enforcement officer scraping off illegal stickers on a switchbox before spraying an undercoat for the final coat of anti-adhesive colourless paint to ward off future illegal banners and sticker advertisements.
THE Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) plans to issue compounds for littering in its Anti-Littering Campaign from Oct 1.
Speaking at its full board meeting, MPSJ president Datuk Asmawi Kasbi said council enforcement officers would issue an immediate fine of RM10 for each offence committed in SS15, Subang Jaya.
Asmawi also talked about the council’s Mobile Counter, which would move from one neighbourhood to the other from Oct 18 to 31.
“The MPSJ Mobile Counter will be available at various locations for
the convenience of residents and to encourage them to register with My@MPSJ,” he said.
“The Mobile Counter will be used as part of our Green Productivity Week programme.
“It will later be available for payment of compound taxes and business licence renewals as one of the phases in moving towards Zero Counters by 2014.”
Asmawi said the Selangor government would embark on the enactment of bylaws for the placement of illegal banners and sticker advertisements.
He said MPSJ was concerned about the issue of illegal banners and sticker advertisements in SS15 and Lebuh Puteri, which it hoped to resolve by using anti-sticker paint.
The anti-sticker paint would be applied to signboards, traffic lights, TNB poles and feeder boxes.
MPSJ also expressed concern over the increase in dengue cases and would takes measures by releasing Toxorhynchites mosquitoes — meant to prevent the breeding of Aedes mosquitoes — around the Sri Tanjung flats in USJ 16 at 10am on Sept 27.
This would be the council’s second effort to check the spread of dengue, the first being in Kampung Sri Aman, Puchong.
The issue of illegal house renovations was also raised by councillor Chang Kim Loong.
He urged houseowners who have already carried out renovations illegally, to submit their building plans.
“I am appealing to MPSJ to give these houseowners a grace period of about six months to a year,” he said.
“There are three categories of people — those who never submitted plans, those who submitted plans but never got the approval and those who received approval but deviated from the submitted plans.
