Council observed that there are some event facilities such as canopies and relevant equipment that being left at Sibu Town Square Phase II after the function for more than 2 months.

As such, all event organisers are therefore reminded to clear the event facilities within 7 days with immediate from the last date of the approved event, failure to remove the canopies and equipment within the stipulated period is subjected to a charges fee at RM 300.00 per day, security deposit of RM 3,000.00 will be forfeited.


4.

Unauthorized Extension in Commercial and Residential area

Council would like to repeatedly remind everyone to abide by the provision of Sarawak Building Ordinance 1994. Council approval shall be obtained before any commencement of renovation works of existing premises. There are still many owners are carrying out the renovation works without Council’s approval. In fact, we need to be sensitive on the arising issues particularly safety of the extension and to be more empathy on the risks that may create to our neighbours due to an act of pure selfishness.

Demolition action over unauthorized structure will be arranged against commercial outlets at Jalan Mahsuri and Jalan Sungai Merah who have walled up the five-foot-ways, cemented car parking lots into a platform and even erected big awings over public roads. As such, Council urge those involved to immediately demolish the unauthorized structures on their own or else they have to face demolition action by Council.

Council had investigated that Ting Cha Hua Kindergarten located at Lot 822, Block 10 Seduan Land District, Jalan Diong Kik Sibu was illegally constructed. The safety of the school children will be put at risk due to unauthorized structures of the building. Council had raised the issue to Jabatan Pendidikan Sarawak regarding safety concerns of the students and also waiting for the response from State Planning Authority on this case.

 

5.

Abandoned Vehicles at Public Places

Council had received numerous complaints from the public regarding the nuisances caused by abandoned vehicles. Most of the received complaints are about the abandoned vehicles at public places including open spaces and road reserves. Such irresponsible actions are absolutely causing nuisances to the public in terms of obstruction and also safety and health hazards.

In order to tackle the abandoned vehicles, Council will identify the owner and notice will be served to remove the said vehicles within 14 days. Council could also compound the owner under Local Authorities (Cleanliness) By-Laws 1999. In case the owner could not be traced, a notice will be attached onto the vehicles to require the owner to remove their vehicles.

Council will remove the abandoned vehicles after the expiry date of the notices and the towing fees shall be borne by the vehicles’ owner. Any such abandoned vehicles removed shall be disposed off when nobody comes forward to make claim.

Promote Usage of Biodegradable Plastic Bag

Plenty of dialogue sessions and various awareness campaigns about “Say No To Plastic Bag” had been implemented since early of this year. I urge member of general public to actively participate on the adoption of biodegradable plastic bag campaign and making full use of recycle bags.

Dialogue meeting with the proprietors of Supermarkets and Departmental Stores will be carried out regularly to identify the percentage of success relating to the campaign as from 1.1.2018. Notices on “Say No To Plastic Bag Every Day” should be put up at payment counter of all Departmental Stores and Supermarkets. An action plan shall be worked-out to promote on the usage of biodegradable plastic bag and might as well to introduce new life style practices to the public towards minimize the possibility relying on biodegradable plastic bag.

Council strives work closely with Education Department to educate the young generations on the function of our existing Kemunyang Sanitary Landfill as to reflect the importance to save our mother earth and to adopt more environmental friendly approaches in our daily life. Council is looking forward to collect the used fishtails and banners from various local advertising companies and to reform into recycle bags in collaboration with Single Mothers Association.

Coffee shop operators in Sibu are encouraged to display business signages and food menu either in Chinese/Bahasa Malaysia or Bahasa Malaysia/Bahasa Inggeris inclusive of clear and eye catchy photo with price tag as caption for easy selection of customers.
