Got A Complaint on Garbage? Just SMS to Council

The Sepang Municipal Council (MPSepang) has set up an SMS complaint system for garbage collection.
Residents can forward their complaints to the council by sending MPSEPANG SAMPAH to 15888.
Council president Mohd Sayuthi Bakar said the system was tested last week and ready for use
“So far, we do not have major problems with garbage collection and I don’t expect to receive many complaints via this channel,” he said at the full board meeting yesterday.
He added that he had met the 10 garbage contractors in the municipality and was confident of an efficient service.
Sayuthi also mentioned that the council would appoint 46 contractors to cut the grass and clean the drains from Feb 1.
He also announced that the Zon Bersih (clean zone) programme would be carried out this year.
Out of the four choices presented — Streetmall, NeoCyber, CBD Perdana and Persiaran Apec (near Petronas) in Cyberjaya — Streetmall was selected as Zon Bersih by the councillors.
Activities related to cleanliness would be planned and organised at Streetmall.
“We can improve the other three areas together as well,” Sayuthi said.
He said special attention would be given to Dengkil and Taman Putra Perdana, which had been chosen as “adopted zones”, to enhance their image.
“We will clean up the areas. Other activities are still being planned but public engagement will be emphasised,” he said.
Meanwhile, Sayuthi said he had yet to receive the new councillors’ list for the 2012 term, although the term of service would expire today.
“Business should go on as usual until further notice,” he said.

Chinese schools: DPM, deputy under fire

PUCHONG: Education Minister Muhyiddin Yassin and his deputy Wee Ka Siong have been taken to task over the ministry’s rejection to build additional branches of Chinese schools despite land being offered by the Pakatan-ruled Selangor state government. Speaking to reporters here, Selangor exco Teresa Kok said: “Muhyiddin and Wee were hammering the state government during the Hulu Selangor by-election and in Parliament that we do not provide land and yet now they turn down our effort. Why turn down the state government’s offer?” “Who is the Education Ministry to decide on the land? Land is a state matter. The ministry only needs to approve,” she added.

On Sept 25 last year, Selangor approved 13 acres of land for the construction of new branches for SJK (C) Yak Chee II and Catholic High School II. The land also was meant for the Autistic Children School. All three plots of land are located in Taman Tasik Prima here. Five days later, the Education Ministry supported the state government’s plan. However, a letter dated Nov 25 last year to the Selangor state secretary indicated that the ministry intented to maintain the abovementioned lands for the construction of SK and SMK Taman Prima Puchong. Petaling Chinese Development Committee deputy chairman Lee Kim Chuan, who was also present at the press conference, said that the need for extra Chinese schools were pressing. “In total, there are more than 12,000 kids in these two schools. Ideally, the average number of school children should be 1,500,” he said.

Catholic High School’s Chong Fatt Leong said the ministry’s decision wronged both Chinese and non-Chinese students.There are 200 non-Chinese out of the 3,400 students in Catholic High School whereas 4% of the 3,000 SJK (C) Yak Chee students are non-Chinese.

‘Not walking the talk’

Meanwhile, Puchong MP Gobind Singh criticised MCA for claiming to champion Chinese schools but failed to do so. “They are not walking the talk. The decision shows that Barisan Nasional is not connected with what is happening in Puchong,” he said.
