The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) will be conducting a rats eradicating gotong-royong across SS15 this Sunday in response to numerous public complaints on unhygienic restaurants causing rats to breed wildly.
The sweep-up will take place from 7.30am to 11am. Participants are called to gather at the MPSJ hall in SS15.
The council president Adnan Md khsan said the gotong-royong will also involve the pest control company Rentokoil to place rats poison at various locations in SS15.
He too called on the eateries’ owners to join the program.
Adnan has previously mentioned that rats and cockroaches are being a thorny issue in Subang Jaya and warned that drastic actions such as forcing every eatery to close once a week will be taken should the situation worsens.
He also chided ignorant traders for their lax attitude.
“Though plenty of enforcement has been carried out, I still received complaints on restaurants putting utensils near to toilets,” he said.
He reiterated his call for restaurant owners to form an organization so that relevant efforts on cleanliness could be taken.
Meanwhile, MPSJ was granted the first prize in the state-level’s management and administration award (APPC) with an average score of 94.67%.
The council also bagged first prize on the Selangor public sector innovation award (AISAS).
