Assessment, Fines But No Basic Service

Businessmen at Segambut Pusat, Segambut Tengah have been paying assessments annually to city hall but their requests for basic municipal services were ignored.

According to them, there is no collection of garbage by the authority in the area for almost 20 years, drains are all clogged up as no cleaning in 5 years. Every month, they are paying RM120-RM150 to hire private contractors for the work.

City hall enforcement teams come and go once a while to fine shop owners whose back lane are dirty. RM300 per fine they have to fork out unless they wish not to renew their trading licenses.

For months, I’ve been writing letters to city hall’s deaf ears.

New city mayor, I will write to you.
