Ratepayer.s
.welfare
theobjectr&1
FINALLY,after more than three months of
uncertainty, the 12 local councils in selangorhave
'their councillors. Almost all the new councillors
_have never served before. Tllis isnot totally a
bad thing as many former councillors-acquired
some bad habits, such as turning a'blind eye to
the proliferation Qf billboards and o<;cupation of
open spacesby politicalparties.
~
.
Councillors play important roles. They pass bylawS,policies and annual budgets,includingfor dev~
elopmentprojects. They highlight problems faced
by ratepayers and often playa direct role in ~olving these. Those app6inted to committees like the
One Stop Centre (OSC)committee that approves
applications for development proJects, also'play
important executive roles. ~.
Of interest inthe new line-up is the presenceof
non-governmentalorganisati.on(NGO)nominees.
Although six out of 24.councillQrs in each Couf1cil
is far short of the much touted 8-8-8 formula to
represent political parties, NGOs and professional
bodies, it is still better than the past practice of
appointingoply ruling party members.
Appointees such as petaling Jaya city councillor Richard Yeoh of Transparency International
Malaysia and Subang'Jaya municipal councillor
Chang Kim Loong of the House Buyers Association are examples of a new and progressive
step in the selection of people to serve in local
councils. IndeedJ the appointment of chagg to the
powerful OSC committee is also commendable.
'~i(HoWev~r,the decision to allow state assembly~
mefi' and'members of parliament to participate in
touncilmeetings, including committee.me~tings,
is wrong even though they have no yoting rights.

t1"'" /;rUb'J'"
l
AM a resident of SS12/1C Subang Jaya. In
order to get to my house, I usually pass by
the Subang Jaya Medical Centre's (SJMC)
emergency entrance.
It was not a problem until SJMC closed its
parking area to facilitate the building- of new
parking bays.
As a result of the closure, visitprs are now
parking their cars haphazardly alongside roads
near and around SJMC'ssouth tower.
They park their cars on both sides of the
road, leaving a small space for cars to go
through.
Cars have to take turns to go through. that
small space. It should be all right when there
are no cars or when the drivers are consider:- C
ate.
.But often than not, drivers- don't seem to
care. And that same road leads to SJMC'semergency room.
What if an ambulance gets stuck just
because drivers do not want to give way?
Would they (the drivers) want to be responsible for a person's death?
I have complained to the Subang Jaya
Municipal Council (MPSJ) several times, by
phone and by email, to rectify this matter,
either by towing away the cars (there is a 'tow-
ing zone' sign)or issuingsummons.
.
MPSJ did respond via letters dated 12th,
16th and24th June, basically stating they
found my complaints to be true and that they
will take action.
.
And the -letter on the 16th .and 24th stated
that the area in question is a.'kawasanrondaan
harian', that compounds were issued and that
the file is now closed. .
.
My question is: How can the file be closed?
It has to be left opened indefinitely. People are
still parking their cars alongside the road. And
there are no enforcement officers around. And
this problem not only exists during the day but
also way into the night where it is worse since
they know MPSJ officers only work during
office hours.
I hope MPSJwilltake the necessary action.
