SUBANG JAYA: The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) has been told to buck up following mounting complaints that have gone unresolved.
“Many complaints have been made to MPSJ by both residents and me, but to date nothing has been done,” said Subang Jaya assemblyperson Hannah Yeoh.
She said damaged streetlights on Persiaran Tujuan (near USJ11-USJ13) have not been repaired for over a month.
Yeoh also pointed out that rubbish had been left collected for over five days in some areas, particularly USJ6.
“Contractors are slacking off towards the end of year, not following schedule and leaving rubbish uncollected,” she said.
She is calling on the council to blacklist and terminate non-performing contractors immediately.
Yeoh also urged the council to improve their services and open more counters for license renewal at the end of the year.
The current four operating counters aren’t enough to cater to the people.
“I took a number myself and I was shocked to have to wait for 300 people in front of me before my turn,” she said.
She said MPSJ should open at least 10 counters during peak seasons.
In addition, numerous potholes in USJ1, on Persiaran Kewajipan SS14, Persiaran Tujuan USJ17 and USJ15 (near Sekolah Wawasan) are posing danger to pedestrians and road users.
“I’ve been informed by the council’s engineering department that they will fix potholes next year as there isn’t enough budget this year for repairs,” Yeoh said.
She said patching the potholes should be a priority, and MPSJ should have allocated enough funds for the whole year.
MPSJ president Datuk Asmawi Kasbi has agreed to allocate an additional RM200,000 to repair these roads.
He also said the council will take action against the non-performing garbage contractors.
