KAJANG Municipal Council (MPKj) is offering a discount on outstanding parking compounds for the first time in a decade.

The total value of over one million outstanding parking compounds from 2017, exceeds RM60mil.

MPKj president Datuk Zulkefli Khalid said motorists paying outstanding parking compounds, between Aug 1 and Aug 31, would be offered a flat rate of RM20 per ticket.

“We want to encourage people to be responsible for their actions. If one has a compound, one must pay up on time,” he said at the MPKj full board meeting.

The normal parking compound rate is tiered with the amount increasing if payment is delayed.

The rate is RM10 if paid within the first 72 hours, after which it increases to RM30 until the 14th day.

From the 15th to the 28th day, the rate goes up to RM50.

After that, the compound will reach a maximum of RM80.

Legal Department director Muhammad Ruzaini Ramli said those who fail to pay up by Aug 31 would be blacklisted by MPKj’s integrated system.

The effect of being blacklisted, he said prevented offenders from dealing with MPKj including renewing their licences until the outstanding amount was settled.

“I hope those with outstanding parking compounds will take this opportunity to pay up.

“To make it easy for those with multiple parking compounds, we will be providing a bar code with all or part of their accumulated compounds clumped in one document to make it easier for them to make payment.

“Payment can be done at the Menara MPKj counter and its branches, payment kiosks and mobile counters.

“Motorists can also pay via FlexiParking and Smart Selangor Parking mobile applications,” he said.

Parking management, Suasa Efektif (M) Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Dr Zainuddin Othman said there were over one million outstanding parking compounds from 2017.

“The total value of the compounds is in excess of RM60mil,” he said.

On another matter, Zulkefli also gave an update on dengue with statistics showing an 11.4% decline in the total number of cases in the Hulu Langat district this year compared to last year.

“Hulu Langat has the second highest number of cases in Selangor with 6,065 cases and two deaths this year.

“The number of cases in areas under MPKj administration, this year, is 4,706 and two deaths, as of July 18.

“For the week ending July 18, there were 175 cases in the municipality.

“Eleven localities were declared as hotspots — four in Kajang; two each in Sungai Ramal, Balakong and Semenyih and one in Dusun Tua,” he said.
