SEPANG Municipal Council (MPSepang) president Mohd Sayuthi Bakar dropped broad hints during the fullboard meeting about an anticipated departure from the council.
He ended the meeting yesterday with a farewell speech to his councillors, although he did not share which council he was transferring to.
“I did not have a lot of experience prior to joining MPSepang, but working with the councillors here had helped me,” he said in his brief speech.
He also sent out well-wishes to the councillors, in case “we do not meet next year.”
StarMetro had earlier speculated in a report that Mohd Sayuthi would be transferred to Kajang Municipal Council, replacing Datuk Hasan Nawawi who retired recently.
When met after the meeting, Mohd Sayuthi, who joined MPSepang in 2010, said he had yet to receive the official letter of transfer.
He was coy when pressed about the council he was speculated to be headed to, saying he did not want to confirm at the moment.
“I am waiting for the letter before I can announce my transfer officially.
“The process involves a lot of parties and it takes a bit of time,” he said.
At the fullboard meeting, the MPSepang president announced that the council would be replacing the garbage bins in a few low-cost flats.
He said the cost would be paid for from the state government’s RM1.4mil allocation.
“The garbage bins were mostly broken or vandalised and their condition hindered our contractors when doing their job, so we are helping the residents replace the bins,” he said.
He explained that the flats’ joint management bodies (JMB) should be the ones responsible for replacing the garbage bins, but MPSepang was stepping in because the JMBs did not have enough money.
“The allocation will also be used for clean-up purposes such as clearing bulk waste and cleaning of the drains,” he added.
