Mahadi: City Hall setting up task force to address strata issues

KUALA Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will establish a task force to look into long-standing strata issues in the city, including those related to joint management bodies and management corporations.

Kuala Lumpur mayor Datuk Seri Mahadi Che Ngah said the task force would comprise technical officers and its commissioner of building department amid rising strata-related complaints within private strata properties in the city.

“This (strata) is an issue we are looking at closely at the moment.

“It is part of our duty to ensure that residents and strata management are aware of their responsibilities and carry out their duties accordingly.

“When issues arise, we need to find a new and more permanent solution,” he said after attending DBKL’s “Majlis Semarak Aidil Fitri Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur” in Cheras yesterday.

He said City Hall had received many reports on ineffective strata management as well as those related to maintenance and cleanliness problems which had to be resolved.

Acknowledging that it was a complicated issue, Mahadi said DBKL would engage with residents, developers and other related agencies for practical solutions.

On another matter, Mahadi said DBKL would send a team immediately to look at water pressure issues at Residensi Awani 2 in Kampung Batu Muda, Sentul.

“If needed, we will send pumps to help with water distribution while the root cause of the problem is being investigated together with other relevant parties,” he said.

Some 5,000 guests turned up at the Hari Raya open house.

Also present were Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Dr Shahidan Kassim, Deputy Federal Territories Minister Datuk Seri Jalaluddin Alias as well as DBKL department heads and staff. — By SHALINI RAVINDRAN
