MBPG to identify viable ‘Yok Tinjau’ proposals by August

Asman Shah: Smaller projects will be implemented right away.

Pasir Gudang City Council (MBPG) has looked through “Yok Tinjau” ideas mooted for a dozen of its zones.

All submissions are expected to be reviewed by August, said Pasir Gudang mayor Datuk Asman Shah Abd Rahman.“As of May 20, MBPG has looked through the proposals for 12 zones in Pasir Gudang.

“We expect to complete going through all submissions by August,” he said when contacted.

“All proposals will be reviewed to see if they are feasible.”

He said smaller projects would be implemented right away, while larger projects such as multi-purpose halls would have to wait.

The RM12mil “Yok Tinjau” initiative, he added, aimed to incorporate ideas from councillors and the community about the type of development needed in their areas.

Each councillor is allowed to submit ideas for up to four projects not exceeding RM500,000 per zone.

Asman Shah said most of the proposed developments involved multi-purpose halls and futsal courts, which could cost up to RM1mil.

“That is why we cannot approve all of the requests.

“We will assess the need and demand for each project.

“Those that are not approved this year will be reconsidered for next year.

“After being reviewed, the proposals will be sent to the State Financial Officer to be included in next year’s Budget and development plans,” he said.

He added that in cases where the zone’s projects did not reach RM500,000, the money would be utilised in other areas.

Asman Shah said, “Previously, councillors were excluded from MBPG’s planning discussions.

“We decided to change that and give councillors room to discuss with community leaders on changes they want to see.”
