End in sight to Bukit Jelutong folks' woes
The Star 13/1/2005

BUKIT Jelutong residents have been promised swift action by Shah Alam mayor Ramli Mahmud with regards to their grouses.

Ramli made the pledge in his closing speech after attending a dialogue session with the Bukit Jelutong Residents' Association (BJRA) on Saturday at the Guthrie Pavilion in Bukit Jelutong.

The event, attended by about 100 residents of Bukit jelutong, was organised by BJRA with the cooperation of Guthrie Property Development Holding Sdn Bhd and Shah Alam City Council (MBSA).

Also present were deputy mayor Za'ba Che Rus, MBSA heads of departments, officers from the Shah Alam police station and Bukit Jelutong fire station as well as representatives from Telekom Malaysia and Alam Flora.

Earlier in the morning, Ramli alsq listened to grouses from several groups of residents during a visit around Bukit Jelutong.

The event also saw the donation of RM3,1 07 by the MX5MY and Two-Door car clubs to the Mercy Malaysia Humanitarian Fund.

BJRA donated a lorry-load of foodstuff and old clothes as well as RM3,201 to the Malaysian Red Crescent Society (MRCS).

At the dialogue session, concerns voiced by residents included stolen manhole covers, faulty streetlights, an increase in assessment rates and cases of dengue fever.

There were also requests for speed bumps on roads for the safety of children in the area.

Another issue highlighted was an allegedly unlicensed kindergarten in the Adang housing area that will start operating soon.

BJRA president Ariffin Buranudeen said residents in the Adang phase, fearing traffic congestion, had objected to the presence of the kindergarten.

Ramli told residents that the city council would replace the stolen manhole covers, repair the faulty streetlights and look into the placement of speed bumps on roads.

Residents were advised to send in their appeals to the city council concerning the increase in assessment rates.

Ramli said that following reports of dengue cases from hospitals, the city council's
health department would carry out fogging services in the affected areas.

"Residents are advised to check water containment areas such as water tanks and garden ponds regularly to make sure they are not breeding sites for dengue
mosquitoes," he added.

Ariffin informed residents that telephone lines in the Arca, Kubah and Ubin phases
would be ready within the next few weeks.

"Telephone lines in the Rabung housing area should be ready by March while those in the L1 and L2 areas should be ready by June," he said.

In his closing speech, Ramli said the residents' grouses had been noted and action would be taken as soon as possible.

He added that dialogue sessions between the city council and other residents associations in Shah Alam would be arranged within the next few months.

The dialogue session was described as highly successful by Ariffin, who added that Ramli was an action-oriented mayor who was always willing to listen to residents.

According to Ariffin, among the objectives of BJRA this year is the establishment of an operations centre.

"The operations centre will be a place for our meetings and activities. It will also receive enquiries and complaints from residents which will be forwarded to the relevant authorities," he said.

He urged Bukit Jelutong residents who have not joined a local neighbourhood security scheme to do so.

"The security scheme, offering daily round-the-clock security patrols, charges RM35 monthly per household. So far, 80% of Bukit Jelutong residents have joined the security scheme," he added. BJRA will also organise a Telekom customer service day on Jan 29.
