SHAH ALAM City Council (MBSA) welcomed its 12th mayor Datuk Mohd Fauzi Mohd Yatim, who was sworn in yesterday at Wisma MBSA for a two-year term.

Mohd Fauzi, 57, takes over from Cheremi Tarman, who retired.

He said effective and consistent communications with the community would help cultivate good rapport with ratepayers.

“MBSA needs to have a sense of urgency in responding quickly to the people and resolving matters effectively,” he said.

“Our councillors and management need to demonstrate good leadership and be a bridge between MBSA and the people.

“We need to see into the needs and well-being of all Shah Alam residents and the community as a whole, and bring up their views at sub-committee meetings.”

Mohd Fauzi said he would prioritise resolving pothole complaints and flash floods in Taman Sri Muda, Section 24 and other hotspot areas.

He added there was a need to go to the ground to check on the drainage networks to detect areas of weaknesses in curbing flash floods.

The health of trees is another area of concern.

He said MBSA’s arborist would be instructed to check all trees and take the necessary action.

“We have embarked on rejuvenation projects that involve landscaping of pocket parks,” he said.

“I also have plans to turn the city into a vibrant place by having more lights at night, like Melaka.”

Mohd Fauzi, who hails from Terengganu, holds a Bachelor of Social Science (Hons) from Universiti Sains Malaysia.

He previously served as Subang Jaya mayor, Ampang Jaya Municipal Council (MPAJ) president and Sepang Municipal Council (MPSepang) president.
