THE collection of parking fees in Kajang Municipal Council (MPKj) carparks in Bandar Tun Hussein Onn and Bandar Seri Putra from Aug 1 has been postponed.
MPKj president Datuk Rosli Othman said the exercise was postponed after the council received numerous complaints from the public that some parking facilities in the two areas had been left out of the implementation.
“We want to be fair to all. We are implementing the charges in phases.
“Since there were complaints, we will try to make the implementation more fair and balanced,” Rosli said at a press conference after the council’s full board meeting.
Commenting on MPKj’s progress on curbing illegal dumping, he said they were moving in the right direction.
“There were about 30 sites used for illegal dumping activities a
few years ago, but now there are only seven.
“There has been gradual improvement over the years and it is the result of consistent enforcement by MPKj.
“We are of the opinion that the current by-law is working and we will continue to conduct checks to compound and confiscate lorries used for illegal dumping.
“The confiscation of lorries causes great loss to operators and has been a good deterrent.
“This month alone, 10 lorries were confiscated in static operations at illegal dumpsites at Bukit Enggang in Sungai Long, Sungai Balak riverside, Fasa 7 in Bandar Tasik Kesuma and Jalan Kuari Sungai Long in Sungai Serai,” Rosli said.
Separately, as of July 20. MPKj recorded 6,021 dengue cases and eight deaths.
There are 151 dengue localities within the areas under the council’s control with 36 hotspots – three in Kajang, four in Dusun Tua, four in Semenyih, 12 in Sungai Ramal and 13 in Balakong.
