EIGHT compound notices were issued by Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) against several businesses for flouting various regulations, during a joint operation with the police.
The operation saw 30 MBSJ enforcement officers joining forces with 20 policemen from the Serdang district police headquar-ters to check on compliance with the standard operating procedure during the nationwide lockdown.
The teams, led by Subang Jaya deputy mayor Mohd Zulkurnain Che Ali and Serdang district acting police chief Supt Mohd Rosdi Daud, visited several industrial areas in Puchong and Seri Kembangan.
“A total of eight notices were issued by MBSJ for offences such as not having valid business licence and for putting up advertising boards without licence under the Trade, Business and Industry Licensing By-law, Advertising By-law and Street, Drainage and Building Act 1974.
“However, no notices were issued by the police as none of the business operators was found flouting lockdown SOP,” MBSJ Corporate and Strategic Manage-ment Department deputy director Azfarizal Abdul Rashid said in a statement.
Earlier, the city council carried out a joint inspection with Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry (KPDNHEP) officers at the SS15 Public Market in Subang Jaya.
“All traders were found to be complying with business regulations and lockdown SOP, so no compounds were issued during this inspection,” said Azfarizal.
“Since the lockdown came into effect on June 1 until June 10, MBSJ carried out nine joint operations at business premises, industrial areas and public spaces with agencies such as the police and KPDNHEP.
“From those inspections, a total of 28 compounds were issued on premises found breaching various council regulations and failure to comply with lockdown SOP.”
He reminded the public, especially business operators, to comply with council regulations and the SOP throughout the lockdown period, which has now been extended until June 28.
