Last week I did a site visit to the flats in SS19 together with MPSJ Councillor Theresa Ratnam Thong, representatives from Sime Darby and MPSJ. Some residents took us around the area and highlighted the problems they have to us.
The complaints are largely due to poor maintenance and rubbish collection. These flats have been here for more than 20 years and many equipments, pipes and cables are all old and rusty. Sime Darby has also informed us that the maintenance account for these flats is in a state of deficit due to non-payment by some residents for a long time. This is a common catch-22 situation for many flats, apartments and condominiums whereby residents do not want to pay because of unsatisfactory services and as a result the maintenance account goes into a deficit and inevitably makes any future services impossible to be carried out.
I will be having further meetings with Sime Darby and MPSJ to work on this situation. Representatives from Alam Flora were also present during the site visit and we will be meeting Alam Flora very soon to discuss all the problems related to rubbish collection in my constituency. Please drop comments here with specific details for eg. the road address, the time and date and vehicle no. (if you remember them) and the complaint for me to raise this up. Be specific and please ensure this concerns areas in my constituency only.
