IN AN effort to curb posting of unauthorised advertisements on road signs, trees and lamp posts, Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) continuously conducts operations around the city to remove them.
Last year, enforcement officers from Wisma MBSA, and branch offices in Kota Kemuning, Sungai Buloh and Setia Alam, took down 181,128 illegal advertisements.
MBSA corporate communications head Shahrin Ahmad said putting up advertisements without the council’s approval was an offence under MBSA Advertisement Bylaws (2007).
“Those who want to put up advertisements such as banners, posters, bunting or billboards to promote a product or service must make an application and obtain approval from the Licensing Department,” he said.
