TO commemorate Shah Alam city’s 21st anniversary celebration, Shah Alam City Council (MBSA) organised a Residents Representative Council (MPP) Convoy Programme and MPP Open Day.

The programme made stops at three zones under the council’s administration —Dewan Meranti MBSA in Section U20 (Northern Zone), Dewan Kenanga MBSA in Section 28 (Southern Zone) and Lapan Timur community garden in Section 8 (Central Zone).

“The initiative serves as a platform to enable local communities to get to know MBSA’s function.

“It also serves to connect with local communities so the council can better understand their concerns and complaints,” MBSA Corporate and Public Relations Division head Shahrin Ahmad said in a statement.

“In addition, the programme is to introduce councillors of each zone and to further strengthen MBSA’s role.”

He added that residents at the three locations could directly access selected MBSA services for a more efficient delivery system, such as to check and pay assessment taxes as well as council fines.

Shah Alam mayor Datuk Zamani Ahmad Mansor also handed over an allocation of RM10,000 to each of the three zones for the respective MPP activities.

Present at each stop were Shah Alam deputy mayor Mohd Rashidi Ruslan, MBSA councillors and local elected representatives.

Earlier this month, MBSA presented gift hampers to babies born on Oct 10, which is MBSA’s official anniversary.

A total of 31 hampers worth RM150 were distributed at hospitals located within the city, namely Shah Alam Hospital, Avisena Women’s and Children’s Specialist Hospital, KPJ Selangor Specialist Hospital and Hospital Umra Shah Alam.

“We presented the hampers as a way of celebrating the joy of welcoming newborns and the city’s anniversary on a special date,” said Shahrin.

In conjunction with the anniversary, MBSA is running a compound reduction campaign of RM10 for parking compounds and up to 70% discounts for other selected offences. The offer ends on Oct 31.
