Ipoh mayor: Solution to deal with stray dogs in the pipeline

Rumaizi (front row, second from left) gestures before flagging off a cycling event at Jalan Bandaraya, Ipoh, in conjunction with Car Free Day.

A NEW plan to resolve the stray dog issue in residential areas in Ipoh will be drafted soon, says Datuk Rumaizi Baharin.

The Ipoh mayor said previously, dogs that were caught were released near the Papan landfill.

“We are discussing with related non-governmental organisations to come up with a new solution,” he said in a press conference after launching a Car Free Day event at Ipoh City Council headquarters in Jalan Bandaraya.

There had been a spate of incidents of stray dogs being poisoned and killed by unknown individuals in Ipoh.

Separately, Rumaizi said Tasik Cermin Eco Park would be managed by a new operator soon.

“The previous company has wound up and Majuperak Holdings Bhd has been offered to run it and will have until July 31 to make a decision.

“The eco park is temporarily being run by the city council.”

Rumaizi also commented on the delay in installing a roof over Gerbang Malam bazaar at Jalan Dato Tahwil Azar.

“We have informed traders that the installation will take place over several phases.

“It was due to be completed by now but the movement control order delayed it.

“We hope to get it done by August,” he added.

The RM3mil project was announced by Rumaizi in September 2020, and was supposed to be completed by March. — By ILI AQILAH
