MBSJ to hold briefing for Ramadan bazaar traders

Subang Jaya City Council (MBSJ) will organise a Ramadan bazaar briefing next month to inform hawkers on the do’s and don’ts at Ramadan bazaars.

“The briefing will cover topics such as good practices for food handling and recycling, proper waste management and use of resources as well as entrepreneurial tips,” said Subang Jaya deputy mayor Mohd Zulkurnain Che Ali.

“The hawkers’ selection process, drawing of trading lots, permit payment and traffic flow management plan will be announced at the briefing,” he said.

“Hawkers will also be reminded on conditions and standard operating procedure that they have to adhere to as outlined by the National Security Council, Selangor government and MBSJ,” he added.

The briefing is scheduled for March 7 to 9 at the MBSJ multipurpose hall in Taman Puchong Indah.

Each one-day session will cater to two zones under MBSJ.

MBSJ has 26 Ramadan bazaar locations this year, under the following zones: Puchong (eight locations), Subang Jaya (seven), Serdang and Seri Kembangan which have a total of seven locations, as well as Kinrara and Putra Heights with two locations each.

“Synergy partners will be at the event to provide support to the traders and MBSJ,” Zulkurnain said in a press statement.

He also announced that MBSJ won two awards at the Malaysian Institute of Planners Planning Excellence Awards (Mippea) 2022 held last month in Kuala Lumpur.

“Mippea aims to recognise excellence in town planning in Malaysia, especially best planning practices, ideas and project executions that have a positive impact on sustainable development,” he said.

“MBSJ won the Gold for its Smart Vibrant City: Subang Jaya Strategic Plan 2020-2025 and Bronze (Innovative Planning: Innovation and Policy-Making Category) for its Greenhouse Gas Inventory Management System,” he elaborated.

On assessment tax, Zulkurnain said reminders for the first half of 2023 were sent out since November last year to more than 275,000 property owners, and MBSJ aimed to collect RM91mil in revenue for the first-half portion.

“We are offering RM15 rebate to the first 75,000 ratepayers who pay their assessment in full for the entire year before Feb 28,” he said.

The rebate will be for 2024’s assessment fee.
