Busy weeks ahead: Staff at DBKL’s Evaluation and Property Management stamping the 1,800 objection letters brought in by Lim Monday.
KUALA Lumpur City Hall’s (DBKL) Evaluation and Property Management Department is going to be a busy place for the next two weeks, up until the deadline for the submission of objection letters against the assessment rate hike.
Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng said he had gone to the department at 9am yesterday and up until 11.30am, the staff were still seen stamping the letters he had brought from property owners in his constituency.
“I delivered 1,800 letters from owners of residential premises,” he said.
He also said that under Section 142 of the Local Government Act, DBKL must hold an inquiry after receiving the objections.
“If not, the property owners can take legal action,” he said.
“It is everyone’s hope that the proposal will be withdrawn.
“Pakatan Rakyat is planning to hold a final mass submission of objection letters on Dec 16 as well as organise a protest at DBKL,” he said.
He said those who wished to submit their objection letters could do so at any DBKL branch office.
The deadline is Dec 17.
About 504,800 letters informing property owners in Kuala Lumpur about the assessment increase were sent out by DBKL.
A total of 44% or 222,112 of recipients are owners of residential properties.
