[Mesyuarat Penuh Majlis]

Council’s Chairman, YB Datuk Tiong Thai King highlighted the following issues :

1. Infrastructure and Municipal Services

For the year 2018, Council has spent about RM 23 million to repair and upgrade roads and drains in Sibu. A total of 113 roads had been improved. On top of that, Council has spent RM 4 million whereby routine road maintenance had been implemented such as repairing potholes, sinking entrances etc.  In carrying out our annual roads and drains improvement, Council appeal to the kind understanding of the people that priority is given to those areas, which are low-lying and flood-prone. Besides, Council has also spent about RM 5 million for 3 drains improvement projects; RM 1 million was spent for street lightings and traffic lights maintenance and about RM 8.5 million was spent for solid and liquid waste management. Council vows to continue the maintenance work within our means of resources.

2. Public Health and Environment Protection

Council has always been a strong advocate for a greener environment and we have carried out a series of activities, such as :
  1. Observed Earth Hour together with NGOs and Government bodies on 24 March 2018.
  2. Love Earth Day held at lobby of Wisma Sanyan on 21 and 22 April 2018.
  3. Segregation of household waste at Pulau Li Hua, Taman Seduan, Bukit Lima/Jalan Belatok, Jalan Apollo and Kolej Laila Taib collecting a total of 14,875.3 kgs of recyclable materials.
  4. Household composting and garbage enzyme projects; a total of 7,539 kgs of green waste were collected from markets and restaurants for composting.
  5. Collaborated with ZHA Environment Sdn Bhd had collected 1289.69 tonnes used tyres within SMC jurisdiction
  6. 16 Cleaning Campaigns were organized jointly with NGOs.
  7. 25,000 cubic metre of sludge were de-sludge from septic tanks of 8,626 premises.
3. Enforcement

In order to ensure a clean and orderly town, Council continues to enforce the stray dog problem, illegal parking and littering issues in 2018. As of 31 December 2018,
  • 1,575 Stray dogs have been impounded. (259 dogs claimed; 145 dogs licensed)
  • 6,530 Compounds were issued for illegal parking in town.
  • 897 Compounds were issued for littering around CBD
4. Council Achieves in Assessment Rates Collection

Sibu Municipal Council is glad to announce that as at 31 December 2018, the assessment rate collection for the year 2018 has reached RM 38,843,287.86. That constitutes 94.56% of the total yield this year. Furthermore, we have collected 44.66% of arrears amounting RM 3,054,519.10. We wish to attribute the remarkable collection to the ratepayers who have rendered their full support and cooperation. Your assistance will help Council to continue its provision of municipal services to the people.

5. Annual Spring Cleaning 2019

Council would like to remind members of general public that the tentative schedule for removal of domestic bulk refuse in residential area has been published in SMC Official Website and newspapers. These activities started on 15.1.2019 and lasts for 16 days until 30.1.2019. All are reminded to bring out domestic bulk refuse one day prior to actual day of collection.  Recyclable items namely old newspapers, aluminium, metal, cans and plastic materials shall be deposited at recycling collection centres at Sibu Kidney Foundation, Rejang Park, Taman Seduan Lorong 8, Taman Grand Height, Taman Li Hua, Taman Indah Shophouses, Jalan Bandong Shophouses and Lane Pahlawan 7 nearby Bus Terminal.

However, Council would like to encourage all Sibuans to start with household waste segregation and apply 5R: Refuse, Reduce, Repair, Recycle and Reuse in daily life towards extending the lifespan of Kemunyang Landfill Site. With such, Council hope that all NGOs to work closely with Council in order to spearheading the importance to minimise daily waste through green initiatives such as composting, reduce food waste in collaboration with SMC Local Agenda 21 Unit.

6. The Local Authorities (Dog Licensing & Control) By-laws, 2018

Plenty of rabies outbreak happened throughout the year 2018 has definitely raised concern on Public Safety. Therefore, Council has endorsed revised impounding fee from RM 150 per case to be revised into RM 50 per day as stipulated in the updated version By-laws as stated above with effect from 1.12.2018. For those who want to claim back their dog, dog impounding fee payment can be made either at Level 20, Public Health Counter, Wisma Sanyan during weekday (8:00am – 5:00pm) or proceed to Level 4, State Agencies, UTC Sibu (Public Health Counter) from 8:00am to 12:00pm.

7. Application to Perform Lion Dance at Public Spaces within SMC Jurisdiction

In conjunction with Chinese New Year celebration, any application for Lion Dance at the venue within the jurisdiction of SMC shall seek prior approval from Council with police permit. I have much pleasure to highlight Kelab Tarian Singa dan Naga Guong Ming Alumni Sungai Bidut will perform Lion Dance at Sibu Central Market on 16 February 2019 at 7:00am. It is hope that all communities shall come together regardless of any races to watch and enjoy the performance.

8. SMC Hotline to Handle Malfunction of Traffic Light

As Chinese New Year celebration is around the corner, Council would like to remind people in Sibu to be more tolerance if there is any malfunction of traffic light happen during the festival. Public are reminded to call SMC Serve hotline: 019-8179297 for rectifying traffic light under SMC jurisdiction whereas JKR Hotline: 014-8186666 for immediate rectification of traffic light under JKR jurisdiction.

9. Extension Trading Hours of Market under SMC Jurisdiction

Extension trading hours is expect to bring convenience to people to plan their festival shopping activities as to avoid traffic congestion particularly during day time.

  Last but not least, May this Chinese New Year bring all Councillors, Council staff, Government Department/Agencies, NGOs, Media and fellow Sibuans happiness, wealth, longevity, and good fortune! May all your wishes be fulfilled throughout the year!
