A TOTAL OF 1,394 Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) employees have received their Covid-19 vaccination, making it 92.01% of the council’s entire workforce.
“Of that number, 1,202 or 79.34% of the total workforce have completed their two doses,” said Subang Jaya mayor Noraini Roslan.
“Only 121 employees have yet to be inoculated,” she said.
MBSJ has a 1,515-strong workforce.
“A total of 129 positive Covid-19 cases have been reported among MBSJ staff since the pandemic began.
“At the moment, 18 cases remain active,” Noraini revealed. She said this in her speech at the MBSJ full board meeting that was held virtually yesterday.
On dengue, she said: “As of epidemiology week 29, or until July 24, there are 1,261 positive dengue cases reported in areas under MBSJ’s administration.
“In the same week, there are three hotspots: Taman Lestari Putra 4 in Seri Kembangan with 26 cases, Taman Perindustrian SIME UEP Subang Jaya with 19 cases and USJ 11/3 in Subang Jaya with 13 cases.”
She reminded residents to ensure their homes and surroundings were clean and free from mosquito-breeding grounds by spending 10 minutes a week for cleanliness inspection.
On assessment tax, Noraini said the payment deadline for the second half of the year was Aug 31.
“We urge all MBSJ ratepayers to pay their assessment tax on time so that we can continue providing efficient and effective council services.
“While we are aware that the current pandemic has had a negative impact on the people, MBSJ still needs to carry out scheduled maintenance, cleaning and development works in the city,” she said.
“As of the second term for 2021, the number of assessment bills processed covers 315,672 holdings with a value of RM104.3mil, while tax arrears amount to RM93.41mil.”
She said the collection rate, as of June 30, for the first term of assessment payment was 85.1%, with RM27.14mil still unpaid.
“During this period of uncertainty, MBSJ has taken some austerity measures, especially in reducing operating expenses to offset declining income.
“These include not printing and posting tax bills in the conventional way. This has resulted in RM1.13mil per year in savings,” she added.
Noraini encouraged ratepayers to get their assessment bills via www.mbsj.gov.myThe property owner only needs to search using their account number and pay online or through several agencies, without having to physically go to MBSJ’s office.
