KUCHING: Village security and development committees (JKKKs) are reminded to uphold good management practices in their operations.

Samalaju assemblyman Majang Renggi said this extended to furnishing complete reports.

“This is intended to prevent any misconception by the public and, at the same time, uphold good practices.

“If a financial statement report is complete and systematic, it will enable future planning, in terms of development for the community at villages and longhouses, to be planned in great detail,” he said.

Majang said this when officiating at the Smart Exchange Briefing programme organised by Suai-Samalaju Community Leaders Association at Sepupok Community Hall, Niah recently.

At the same time, he also called on the JKKKs to work closely with government departments and agencies.

“No need to be shy if we need to ask or learn from them the proper way to complete a report for the village and how to manage finances,” he said.

He also hoped with the briefing given to the JKKKs, community leaders, secretaries and treasurers of all longhouses would be able to share their knowledge with other dwellers.

Also present were Niah state administrative officer Mohd Fazly Juna, Subis assistant administrative officer Theresa Jua, community leaders Man Imbak and Lansam Goyang.
