SOME 50 residents in Taman Sri Putra 3 in Sungai Buloh are afraid for their safety, especially at night, as a result of broken street lights in the neighbourhood.
Residents are worried of crime sprees that might occur if the problem was not addressed soon.
Annie George, 54, said they forwarded their complaints to the Housing and Local Government Ministry’s Public Complaints Bureau.
“We have not heard anything so far about this matter.
“We are scared to go out at night because of the poorly lit roads” she said. Choi Hing Leong, 62, is concerned that they might have to spend the upcoming festive season without sufficient lighting, while Vincent Ng Tuck Kong, 66, urged the relevant authority to look into the matter immediately.
Residents have also forwarded their complaints to the Selayang Municipal Council (MPS).
MPS Corporate Communications department deputy director Ahmad Fauzi Ishak in a statement said the developer should consult Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) on the matter.
In a letter from MPS to the developer dated Oct 29 last year, it stated that the electricity cut off by TNB.
“You (developer) did not arrange for the transfer of the account name to us (MPS).
“We request that you (developer) transfer the name of the two accounts involved and settle any arrears, ” the letter read.
Annie said the residents should not suffer from any bureaucratic mishap.
“We the residents are suffering from the consequences, ” she said.
