THE annual general meeting (AGM) of the USJ20/1-3 Residents Association in Subang Jaya was far from mundane.
Residents who attended the meeting and Hari Raya gathering not only used the opportunity to catch up with friends and neighbours, but also came away learning more about the developments taking place in their neighbourhood.
The updates were provided by special guests and Subang Jaya assemblyman Michelle Ng, USJ police chief Asst Supt Jasni Zolpa and Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) representative for Zone 3 Lee Jen Uyin.
The guests were welcomed by the association’s chairman Hoh Choo Kim and committee members.
Ng, who also attended the residents association’s (RA) AGM last year, urged residents to make use of the Smart Selangor parking app which makes it easier for parking payments.
“Previously it was troublesome with coin-operated machines or parking tickets. With the app, you can add an amount to your credit and pay for parking,” she said.
Ng added that a senior citizens’ club was formed in USJ 6 to promote care for the elderly.
The first-term assemblyman also elaborated on a plan to build a full-fledged health clinic in USJ1.
“It will be a smaller version of a hospital with X-ray and dental facilities. The clinic should be ready by 2024,” she said.
Meanwhile, Lee said MPSJ handled about 3,000 complaints a month ranging from issues about pets and parking.
“If you want to keep a dog or a cat, there are rules to follow. Please don’t allow your pets to roam outside your home,” she said.
Lee also briefed the residents on a road widening project along Jalan Damai for the benefit of the residents.
In his address, ASP Jasni focused on the increase in Macau scam-type of crimes in USJ.
“Scams are being reported in the area almost every day. If you have money, scammers will target you,” he said, highlighting a case in which one victim lost RM1.3mil to scammers posing as police officers.
ASP Jasni advised those who received suspicious phone calls to immediately cut the line. “Believe me, the police will not call you to threaten you. If we have reason to come looking for you, we will show up at your doorstep,” he added.
A cake donated by Berry Cake House was later cut to commemorate the occasion. The special guests were presented with fruit baskets before everyone was treated to a buffet spread.
