KUCHING: There will be a key performance indicator (KPIs) set for Kuching South City Council (MBKS) enforcement staff on the issuance of compounds in efforts to keep Kuching city clean.
MBKS mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng said starting next year, the council will have the KPI for its enforcement unit to reach the numbers of compound that they should issue to the public.
“I like it when there is no complaint, but I don’t like when there is no compound,” he said during the MBKC cleaning-up campaign at Jalan Padungan today.
He said this was because each time after the council clean up an area, the public would repeat the same mistake by disposing rubbish indiscriminately.
“We clean, and they just throw. It will never end. So, for instance, shop owners who do not maintain cleanliness at the back of their shop, we give them warning first. If they repeat it, we will compound the owner,” he said.
In the meantime, he also urged shop owners who have locked their back lanes of their property to open it up or provide contact numbers so that MBKS contractors can conduct the cleaning works.
“As we have started the cleaning campaign, this will be extended to other areas, and we will provide the full information on the location that we are going to clean,” he said.
Earlier, 60 MBKS staff together with 30 local residents and shop owners participated in the cleaning-up campaign.
The campaign will be carry out every week at different locations that are under the jurisdiction of MBKS.
