No exemptions for advertising licences in Ampang Jaya

NOBODY is exempted from applying for a licence to put up any form of advertisement in Ampang Jaya, council president Datuk Mohammad Yacob said.

Everyone, including political parties, had to apply for licences for banners, bunting and all other forms of advertisements with the council, Mohammad Yacob told the Ampang Jaya Council’s (MPAJ) full board meeting on Wednesday.

“Usually, enforecement operations will be conducted to take down unlicensed advertisements and compounds issued to the parties responsible for putting it up,” he said.

So far, 101 such operations have been conducted between January and August this year and 3,277 advertisements have been taken down.

A total of 271 compounds with a maximum fine of RM1,000 were also issued to the offenders based on the address or business name advertised.

“Businesses that are unidentifiable from the advertisements will usually list a telephone number.

“We will report the number to the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission for further action,” he added.

On a separate matter, SJK (T) Ampang in Jalan Ampang has submitted a request to the council to take over a nearby hall for school use.

“We are not able to make a decision on this until we determine the land status with the district land office,” Mohammad said, adding that the hall was previously used as a service centre of a political party and was built on government land.
