FREE street parking for one day and free distribution of 1,000 plants to early ratepayers are among the incentives Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) is offering in conjunction with the second anniversary of its city status.

“We are offering free street parking across the entire area of our jurisdiction on Oct 20, including at the two-hour parking zones,” said Subang Jaya mayor Datuk Johary Anuar.

“We are also waiving the notice fee on late payments for this year’s second term assessment tax.

“The free parking offer will cost the council about RM20,000. This amount represents our usual one- day collection of parking fees across more than 42,000 bays.

“The waiver of notice fee is estimated to cost the city council about RM400,000. We have 150,000 properties that have yet to pay the 2022 second term assessment tax,” he added.

MBSJ will be distributing 1,000 free plants to taxpayers who paid their 2022 second term assessment tax early.

In addition, the city council is offering free entry to its swimming pools on Oct 20.

MBSJ’s swimming pools are in Kompleks 3K in SS13 Subang Jaya and in Serdang Raya.

Furthermore, those who sign up at MBSJ’s libraries in Bandar Puteri Puchong and Kompleks 3C in Bandar Sunway on Oct 20 will be entitled to free library membership for a year.

Johary was speaking at a ceremony at MBSJ’s headquarters in USJ 5, Subang Jaya, to launch the city council’s lineup of events and incentives to celebrate its second anniversary.

The activities will be held from October to December this year.

“The programme is aimed at creating a sense of ownership among the local community and as a token of appreciation to stakeholders for their support in improving MBSJ’s services,” said the mayor.

There are over 20 events including Subang Jaya community run, 25km bicycle fun ride, criterium open challenge and a parade involving MBSJ departments, residents’ representative councils and other stakeholders.

There will also be an esports challenge, retro motor show, upcycling programme, food planet festival and sale of groceries by Selangor Agricultural Development Corporation.

Football, darts, woodball and netball contests are also planned.

The highlight is Karnival Bandar Raya Subang Jaya 2022 on Oct 22 and 23, which will be held within MBSJ’s headquarters and Arena MBSJ.
