JOHOR BARU: Johor government has announced a special incentive payment amounting to RM1.5mil to all local councils staff and officers who work as frontliners during the movement control order (MCO).

State housing and local government committee chairman Ayub Jamil said the incentive was in line with the Federal Government’s incentive payments of RM600 to health workers and RM200 to security forces during the MCO period.

“In this context, the state government feels that frontliners from local councils also played an important role during MCO risking their own lives to provide the best service to the people in Johor.

“With this, the state government agreed to hand out aid of RM300 each to all local councils frontliners, where the payments will be channelled monthly during the MCO, ” he said in a statement here on Thursday (April 23).

Ayub added that the allocation, worth RM1.5mil, would be for three months during the MCO but it would continue if the order was extended.

He said the incentive would be given to all grades and positions under the health inspector scheme or environment health officer, as well as enforcement.

Ayub also said the special incentive would also be given to any local council officers or staff instructed by the mayor or president to carry out their duties during the MCO.

“We believe this special incentive will benefit 1,681 staff from 16 local councils involving two city councils, seven municipal councils and seven district councils, ” he added.
