IF you think you can escape summonses by parking illegally, obstructing traffic, and littering and what not — think twice.
Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) will soon be beefing up its enforcement team at the 11 parliamentary constituencies in Kuala Lumpur.
Kuala Lumpur Mayor Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail said he would be deploying the extra enforcement to the respective areas so the officers could respond quickly to public’s complaints.
Fuad was responding to the call made by Setiawangsa MP Datuk Seri Zulhasnan Rafique who suggested that DBKL set up “Enforcement Units” at parliamentary level.
The mayor said previously each constituency had 10 officers and reported to an inspector — this time more will be added as DBKL had some 1,600 officers and will soon be sent out to the different areas.
When contacted Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng commended the idea saying that it would enable officers to react to complaints faster as the residents could contact the branch office directly instead of going through the headquarters to reach the officers.
Bukit Bintang MP Fong Kui Lun and Titiwangsa MP Dr Lo Lo Ghazali, however, felt that having the same officers stationed at one area may lead to corruption.
Zulhasnan mooted the idea last month after receiving numerous complaints from his constituents on illegal hawkers and illegal parking.
He said having an enforcement unit operating at each constituency will help create an effective delivery system for DBKL as officers will report to the DBKL manager at each constituency to help curb problems like illegal hawkers, illegal parking and more.
