City Hall warns Manggatal residents against littering
CITY HALL will punish the tenants on the above units of Block C, in Manggatal township with a RM500 compound each if they continue to discard rubbish through their windows. 

Dirtying any public places is an offence as stipulated under its Anti Litter By-Law 2005, which offender will face a compound of between RM20 and RM500.  

A City Hall spokeswoman said the tenants would be warned not to do so anymore or risk being compounded. 

“We will be fair for them for now and that we won’t resort to issuing compound to them at this stage but we will instruct them to clear the mess up within a week instead.

“We will not hesitate to penalise them if they choose to ignore our earlier warnings to clean the cantilever and to stop littering on that structure.

“Hopefully this publication will serve as final warning to them,” he said, adding that the latter could also be fined up to RM5000 if the case is taken to court.

He also urged building owner to ensure his or her tenants are maintaining the cleanliness of the property to avoid the messy areas from becoming a breeding ground for Aedes mosquitoes or other harmful pests.

JOHNNY, a concerned member of the public, told Hotline recently that all kinds of rubbish were scattered on the cantilever which could not be seen from the ground floor.  

“I noticed rain water had started to accumulate in that area probably because the rubbish had clogged up the drain outlets. This shouldn’t happen for fear that Aedes mosquitoes will breed in that clear and still water,” he added. 

He hoped the City Hall and other related government agencies would step in to put a stop to such matter.

“I think it is time to pressure the litterbugs to clear the mess that they have created in the first place, apart from issuing them a hefty compound,” he added.  (OV)
