RESIDENTS of USJ 11/4, Subang Jaya, who gated up their back lane, have been asked to unlock the gates for public cleaning contractors to enter to carry out cleaning works.
The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) had issued notices to the residents about an upcoming anti-dengue operation, and urged them to leave the gates unlocked during that period in view of the rise in dengue cases in the area. There were 26 dengue cases within the past 90 days.
Subang Jaya assemblyman Hannah Yeoh visited the area yesterday with MPSJ councillor Pooi Weng Keong and MPSJ Health Department director Dr Roslan Mohamed Hussin to announce the gotong-royong that would be held on Aug 30.
Dr Roslan said it was important that residents do their part as the council had been carrying out their responsibility in combating dengue.
“If necessary, we may break the locks so that cleaning contractors can enter,” said Pooi.
USJ 11/4 Residents Association committee member Jee Poh Lin, who has been living here for more than 10 years, said residents were often asked to keep the neighbourhood clean and do their part in keeping it dengue-free.
“I feel worried when I hear of the rise of dengue cases,” she said.
Another resident, Raymond Sudo said water tanks for houses in USJ 11/4C and 4E were placed outside and urged the residents to make sure these did not become a breeding spot for mosquitoes.
