[Mesyuarat Penuh Majlis]

YB Datuk Chairman highlighted the following issues :

1.

Anti-Littering Campaign

Since the implementation of littering compound of  RM500.00 on offenders within Council’s jurisdiction from 1 July 2017, the total number of compounds issued was 127 and only 53 compounds settled.  Council re-emphasized on offender who fails to comply with such By-Law and failure to pay the compound fee would be subjected to  court action.

All residential neighborhoods are urged  to  report illegal dumping at open space within residential area.   Supporting evidences such as video or photo captured shall be submitted to Council for stern action against litterbugs.

Educating the public by implementing cleanliness campaign in schools to inculcate students with good habits.  Apart from that, NGOs could play an essential role in disseminating information and conducting public awareness campaigns through various multi-media platforms to impart the importance of proper rubbish disposal.  Hence, we should work together to enhance the level of civic-consciousness to dispose rubbish in more appropriate way.

 

2.

Say “No” To Plastic Bag

The campaign was implemented since 16 November 2009 with  more than 30  participation in “2 No Plastic Bags Days – Monday and Saturday”.  In order to establish a more sustainable and green city, Council would launch “Say No To Plastic Bag 2.0 campaign – 3 Days” with effect from October 2017.  Therefore, all store retailers or enterprises shall replace it with Bio-degradable plastic bags or paper boxes whereas members of general public are advised to bring along their shopping bags instead of simply buying plastic bags without looking into the negative impact to our mother earth.

Adverse impacts of plastic bags are undeniable.  We should be aware that  usage of plastic bags is on the increase.  It is definitely non-environmental friendly, over-consumption of plastic is affecting climate change, river pollution, and furthermore, litter caused by the notorious bags has been referred to as “white pollution” which has become a major issue in today’s world.

 

3.

Outbreak Of Rabies Disease

Council had caught 408 dogs from 1.7.2017 to 25.8.2017, with  only 60 dogs being claimed this month.

Therefore, Council reminds the members of general public to practise proper preventive measures particularly not to approach and attempt to handle pets from those declared rabies infected areas and immediately seek medical treatment after being bitten. 

 

4.

LA Serve Squad

Under the initiative of Ministry of Local Government and Housing Sarawak, LA Serve Squad aims to improve the range of services delivery, enhance efficient use of manpower in order to reduce the number of complaints.  LA Serve Squad is a scheduled patrol by the Council to identify the problems on the ground and members of the Squad is equipped with tools to solve the minor problems on the spot and  reported  the critical cases for immediate rectification.

Six local authorities – Bintulu Development Authorities (BDA), Padawan Municipal Council (MPP), Samarahan Municipal Council (SMC), Sri Aman District Council (SADC), Sibu Municipal Council (SMC) and Miri City Council (MCC) have been selected for the pilot project.

Council urges the general public to use electronic messaging such as WhatsApp and Wechat to convey complaints through 019-8179297, hotline of SMC LA Serve Squad during or after working hours to resolve the issues related municipal services such as malfunction of traffic light, pothole, spoon drain, illegal dumping, etc.

Rescheduled Operating Hours of SMC Public Library At Jalan Keranji

SMC Public Library at Jalan Keranji has rescheduled operation hours for its counter services from 9:00 a.m till 7:00 p.m. (Tuesday to Friday) except 12:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Monday whereas operation during weekend is from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with immediate effect from 1 September 2017.

 

6.

New Road Signage “Jalan Channel”

Council would like to express sincere apology to all members of general public for  any inconveniences caused on the recent  wrong naming in Mandarin due to negligence of both contractor and Council.  However, the case has been resolved.

I hope that people can be more empathy and do not maliciously render the unintentional mistake.  Recently, Council observed that some incidents like the banner of Compound on Littering being photo shopped into “Kampua” and  “Jagung”, Jalan Channel being modified into “Jalan Laut Bawah” are absolutely irresponsible act which might carry political agenda.

Therefore, Council urges cooperation from the people in Sibu to work closely with SMC especially to report all issues under Council’s jurisdiction through well-established feedback channels comprises Hotline, Talikhidmat and approach councillors in charge of the 30 respective designated zones.

 

7.

60th National Independence Day

Sibu communities are encouraged to fly the Jalur Gemilang in conjunction with Malaysia 60th Merdeka Anniversary.  Last but not least, I wish to call on Sibuans to organize more activities throughout Merdeka Month in order to embrace diversity and moderation towards building a united Malaysian nation.
