KUCHING: Mayor Datuk Wee Hong Seng has vowed to throw the book at contractors who fail to complete projects on schedule or do not comply with the set Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).

“The implementation of a planned project is for the convenience of the people so it should be completed perfectly and according to schedule.

“Contractors who fail to implement projects will be blacklisted and not allowed to participate in council projects for a period of time due to breach of contract terms.

“Additionally, they will also be penalised for the delay in project completion,” warned Wee who is Kuching South City Council (MBKS) mayor.

He said this when contacted by the New Sarawak Tribune on Saturday (Feb 5).

Wee reminded contractors to always be committed and ensure the project is implemented according to specifications.

“(To curb the delay in project completion issue) we have 30 councillors in charge of all seven zones.

“We also have a community engaged with the village development and security committees (JKKK) as well as the community leaders to assist our council,” he disclosed.

Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Seri Dr Sim Kui Hian, in a statement recently, urged local councils to take immediate action against contractors who fail to complete their projects according to schedule.

According to him, any delay in government projects means going against the will of the government and the people because any development promoted by the local council is to improve the facilities for the benefit of local residents.
