KUALA Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will hold one community event in every constituency to disseminate information on its processes and services.

The first of this series of monthly events known as Temu DBKL kicked off in the Bandar Tun Razak constituency on Jan 27.

Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department (Federal Territories) Dr Zaliha Mustafa, who launched the event, said the programme could increase city dwellers’ knowledge and understanding of DBKL’s role.

“The event can also increase the people’s trust in the administration through direct dealings and a targeted approach,” she said at Kuala Lumpur Football Stadium in Cheras.

Also present were KL mayor Datuk Kamarulzaman Mat Salleh, Bandar Tun Razak MP Datuk Seri Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, Seputeh MP Teresa Kok and Federal Territories Department director-general Datuk Noridah Abdul Rahim.

Kamarulzaman said all 25 departments in DBKL, as well as several ministries and government agencies would be involved.

“We have organised many activities, specifically for residents in people’s and public housing projects.

“These activities involve sports, arts, entrepreneurship and digitalisation and are open to people of all ages.

“We also have sales of basic necessities at affordable prices, courtesy of the Domestic Trade and Cost of Living Ministry and Federal Agricultural Marketing Authority.

“There is also a booth to help the people update their personal information on the Central Database Hub (Padu),” he said.

Kamarulzaman said DBKL would also offer discounts on selected compounds.

This inception of Temu DBKL coincided with DBKL’s Kuala Lumpur Green Tea, an event to promote green initiatives at KL Football Stadium on every fourth Saturday of the month, throughout the year.
