SIBU: Sibu Municipal Council will not hesitate to terminate the services of its contractors involved in grass-cutting, drain-clearing and drain sediment removal works who fail to perform up to expectation.

Its chairman Datuk Tiong Thai King said they would never tolerate the poor performances of any contractor who neglected the people’s need, when chairing a monthly council meeting yesterday.

He added the council had decided to terminate the service of a contractor for Zone 6, which covers Merdeka Road and its lanes, Pedada Road and its lanes, Deshon Road, Brooke Drive, Rejang Park, Au Yong Road and Gambir Road.

“The service of this particular contractor will be terminated on April 30 for breaching the terms of the contract.

“We will engage someone else on a temporary basis to take over the grass-cutting, drain-clearance and drain sediment removal works.”

He disclosed that SMC had received 77 complaints in the first four months of this year about this particular contractor’s poor performance through Talikidmat and SMC Cares.

On another subject, Tiong said the council had huge stock of the two-hourly parking coupons, which would be disposed to cut cost and reduce wastage.

“These coupons are for the 2012 to 2018 period. However, they can still be used, and what the bearers need to do is to scratch the month, day and time leaving the year part intact,” he said.

On the closure of Seng Ling Road landfill, he said the site had been handed over to the Land and Survey Department.

“It officially ceased operation on April 12, and the public can use the Kemuyang landfill instead.”

Tiong also commended all those involved in the recent ‘Love Earth Day’ campaign, which was very well organised.

He said the campaign was aimed at discouraging the use of plastic straws at eateries, which the eateries must not supply to their customers anymore from April 20.

“The non-supply of plastic straws will be included as one of conditions in their licence effective Jan 1, 2020.”
