[Mesyuarat Penuh Majlis]

YB Datuk Chairman highlighted the following issues :


Civic consciousness on littering

Although Sibu has undergone cast development and the level of education of the community has increased many folds, it is most disheartening to note that many members of the public are still littering consciously at public places. Council has even received irresponsible remarks such as it is all right to litter because public have paid assessment rates to the Council to engage sweepers to clean the town. Thus, I wish to appeal to everyone in Sibu to observe the highest standard of civic consciousness. Littering problems can never be solved if residents are not willing to cooperate. We should work together to keep the town clean and tidy so that we can be proud of a clean Sibu.



Ching Ming Festival

Chinese Tomb Festival or better known as Ching Ming is just around the corner. As like previous years, Council will allow the selling of flowers and candles 14 days before the actual day. The areas allowed for such sales are by the roadside along Brooke Drive after Kwong Ann Crescent, Sg. Merah town area and Deshon/ Brooke Drive junction. I would like to remind all the sellers to observe cleanliness strictly. All odds and ends should be put in boxes or plastic bags and to be taken away from the site and disposed of properly at the end of trading day. Council will not hesitate to take compounding action against defaulters. No sales of flowers and related items are allowed anywhere in the town centre except five-foot-ways in front of existing floral shop, subject to application and payment of service charges.



Cleanliness of food outlets

Food outlets play an important role to enhance the image of a town. Therefore, it is important for the food outlets to maintain a high level of cleanliness and hygiene. I would like to remind all food outlets to observe the highest standard of cleanliness and hygiene. Council have received complaints that there are still a minority of the licensees who have neglected their obligations under the license conditions. The more common complaints received are not providing hot water for sterilizing eating utensils, washing at the back lane or on the roads, excessive diplay of tables and chairs, dirty toilets, unhygienic handling of food and even allowing dogs in the premises. Council would not hesitate to take compounding action against the licensees. Hence, I would like to request the kind assistance from the Restaurants and Coffeeshop Owners Association to assist Council to remind their members on the issue.



Outstanding licence fees

Many licences are found to have failed to renew their licence under the Miscellaneous Occupation By Law for the year 2015. This includes licences issued to food outlets and hawkers. Council views this as a serious violation of the licensing conditions. Licences which are not renewed will be deemed lapse after 42 days and Council would not hesitate to take compounding action against the operators which will require them to cease trading.


Unlicensed food outlets

There is a handful of food outlets found to start operating without obtaining valid licence from Council. I wish to inform again that apart from a Trade Licence obtained from District Office, food outlets must obtain separate licences such as Tea & Coffee Licence, Foodshop Licence from the Council first before they start operating. Council has compounded unlicensed food outlets but some are still operating on the ground. Council is looking into taking action to close down food outlets that have failed to obtain valid licence. The same goes to Hotels. Council shall take stern actions against illegal operators.



Cleaning campaign at Kg. Bahagia Jaya, Teku

Illegal dumping at Kg. Bahagia Jaya has been observed to be rampant and becoming an eye-sore to the public. Hence, Council will organise a Cleaning Campaign at Kg. Bahagia Jaya, Teku on 7th April 2018 (Saturday) at 6:30 a.m. which will be attended by YB Dr. Annuar Rapa’ee, Assistant Minister for Science, Research & Biotechnology. Residents have been informed to put any bulk refuse outside their houses by 6th April 2018 for collection. Any bulk refuse put outside their houses for collection after the scheduled cleaning campaign would be charged at RM40.00 per truck. The request can be made by filling the request form obtainable at Council’s Public Health and Municipal Services Department at Level 20, Wisma Sanyan and to be paid at SMC’s UTC counter before removal action. Public can also send their bulk refuse to Seng Ling dump site themselves free of charge. Additionally, residents of Kg. Bahagia Jaya, Teku are requested to co-operate with Council during the cleaning campaing on 7th April 2018 in order to ensure the success of the campaign.



Love Earth Day Campaign 2018

Love Earth Day Campaign will be held on 21 & 22 April 2018 at Lobby of Wisma Sanyan. The venue is sponsored by Messrs Pelita Towerview.
