COMPANIES responsible for putting up illegal billboards will soon be served notices, said Petaling Jaya Municipal Council (MPPJ) president Datuk Ahmad Termizi Puteh.
The Star recently highlighted the increasing number of illegal billboards that had been mushrooming in Petaling Jaya, especially in new areas between Bandar Utama and Kota Damansara.
“We have identified a number of these billboards and will issue notices to those responsible,” said Termizi during a phone interview on Tuesday.
He said the council was still tabulating the exact number of illegal billboards in Petaling Jaya and had yet to decide on the severity of action to be taken against those involved.
On the filthy state of a pedestrian tunnel linking Damansara Utama (DU) and Damansara Jaya (DJ), Termizi said Alam Flora had been given the job of water-jetting the tunnel regularly.
The filthy condition of the tunnel had been a main complaint among DU and DJ residents for several years.
The Star had quoted Alam Flora senior corporate communication manager Ravindran Raman Kutty as saying that the company’s contract with MPPJ called only for the tunnel to be swept six times a week.
