TAMAN J UMBO TOWN SIDELINED // 珍宝园严重被忽略





沙民主行动党西甘拜园支部副主席李李志强和投诉部的李氏敦促必打丹县议会县官解释,为什么必打丹县很多方面的问题都不被注重和处理。沙民主行动党西甘拜园支部领袖接到许多有关Taman Jumbo的投诉,就前往该处进行视察。 Taman Jumbo虽然是一个小镇,但是许多人前往亚庇市都会经过该镇,该处有餐厅,茶店,小集市和巴刹等。


The Sabah DAP Kepayan Barat Branch deputy Chief, Mr.Andrew Lee and Complaints Bureau, Mr.Lee Han Su demands an explanation from the Director Majlis Daerah Putatan on why many problems in Putatan area were not being attented.   Sabah DAP Kepayan Barat Branch leaders received numerous complaints from Taman Jumbo town and went to inspect the area.   Although Taman Jumbo is a small town but it is a main town where the passer transits before heading to Kota Kinabalu City.   The town consists of restaurants, coffee shops, mini marts, wet market etc.  


Several times Sabah DAP has over heard that the town is in a dilemma and in need of help.   To Andrew supprise and shocked when he visited the town.  The town has no proper guidelines and management.  They were told the Majlis Daerah Putatan supposed to be responsible in managing the town.  They met and interviewed a number of business operator at the shops and at the wet market.   Anger and depression poured out from the people there during the interview.   Anderw also found out that the fish market has no water and electricity supply.   The fish stall owner were forced to scoop water from a near by unhygienic water tank just beside the vegetable section.   At the same time, they had to install their very own wiring, connecting to tube lamps.  To make matters worse, the fish-market drainage system is stagnant and every corners was clogged up.  Just imagine the smell.  How and why is this happening?

The stall owner pays rental to Majlis Daerah Putatan, which is inclusive of water and electricity. However, they are not getting what they had paid for.   Andew was been told that they have no right to question the officers, and if they do not pay the rent, their license will not be renewed in future.   Sabah DAP feel that this is very abusive and misuse of power.

Besides that, they inspected the public toilets on the first floor and were shocked to find that the toilets had not been functional due to water pressure, and the female toilet has turned into a storage area.   This means Taman Jumbo Town has not public toilet.  The wet market operators urged the council to reopen the public toilet and carry out whatever necessary repairs that needs to be done.   The wet market needs cleaning, especially the five foot way are filthy with bird dropping (Beside Fish Session) and walls are full of webs.

The other problem that the public are facing is the bad smell from the septic tank.  It has been 17 months since the septic pump at this area broke down.  When this pump is dysfunctional, this means the waste from the toilet was not flush down in a proper way.  The wastes from the septic tank will over flow and it will flow all the way to the five foot way and along side the road.  This produces a very bad smell and very unhealthy.   There are restaurants and coffee shops in this area, and with such conditions, it will definitely drive customers away.   They were told that the elected representative of Tanjung Aru Constituency, YB Datuk Edward Yong had promised to get down to it and repair the septic pump during his last visit to the town 17 months ago, but until today nothing was done. Where are the promise?   The people said YB Dtk Edward Yong would only visit the area once a year just to shake hands.

During the inspection, they had detected that pavement slaps were not place in the proper arrangement, several slaps with different sizes and some parts of the drains are not cover with slaps at all.  If anyone accidently fell into it surly will fractured the knee.  Andrew urged the Majlis Daerah Putatan or selected contractor to carry out checking and repair and replace proper standard size slaps.   The authorities should be more sensitive and give priority to public safety.

Majlis Daerah Putatan was established in the early years of 2010.  It has been two years now and we are not convinces and impress at all with Majlis Daerah Putatan.  The council is unreliable and irresponsible.  Because 13 phone calls were made to the council with the intention of speaking to the officer in charge or even the director.   However, none of these calls was entertained, even though we have provided cell phone numbers for them to reply.  The state government or the relevant authorities are urge to look into this matter. A council transformation is need urgently. Or better off, let the people transform it in the next coming GE.

Taman Jumbo严重被忽略

沙民主行动党西甘拜园支部副主席李李志强和投诉部的李氏敦促必打丹县议会县官解释,为什么必打丹县很多方面的问题都不被注重和处理。沙民主行动党西甘拜园支部领袖接到许多有关Taman Jumbo的投诉,就前往该处进行视察。 Taman Jumbo虽然是一个小镇,但是许多人前往亚庇市都会经过该镇,该处有餐厅,茶店,小集市和巴刹等。

沙民主行动党已经多次听说该镇面对许多问题,并需要当局处理解决。李氏前往视察该处时,很震惊的发现该处的基本设施没有受到适当的维修和管理。 他们被告知该处是由必打丹县议会负责管理的。 他们会见了该处的商店和巴刹小贩,在探访期间该处的人们向沙行动党领袖反映他们愤怒和不满。  李志强发现该处的鱼巴刹没有水电供应。 鱼档的老板被迫从菜巴刹附近的一个不卫生的水箱舀水用。 同时他们不得不自己安装电线以连接管灯。 更糟的是鱼巴刹的排水沟严重堵塞,污水无法排走,导致臭氣燻。为何会出现这种情况呢?

该巴刹的摊主支付租金给该处的县议会,因此应该包括水电供应。然而当局却没有提供该些基本设施。 而当局告诉他们无权质疑有关当局和官员,如果他们不支付租金,他们营业牌将不被续期。 沙行动党认为这是根本是贪污和滥用权力。

除此之外,他们还发现一楼的公共厕由于水压的问题而所无法操作和使用,女厕所则被改用来存储货物的用途。 这意味着整个Taman Jumbo镇没有公共厕所。 巴刹小贩敦促县议会立即安排人前来维修和重整该处的公共厕所,并且开放给民众使用。 此外该处的巴刹需要被清理,尤其是行人道和其墙壁非常肮脏,充满鸟粪和蜘蛛网。

还有严重的问题就是该处的民众面对从化粪池发出来的难闻的气味。 据悉该化粪池的泵已经损坏了有17个月之久。 当此泵无法正常操作,这意味着厕所的秽物无法冲走。 导致堆积化粪池的秽物无法化解而溢流出来,并流到行人道及马路一侧的水沟。导致该处环境恶臭无比,并且非常不健康。  在这情况下顾客都不愿前往该处的餐厅和茶店,造成该处的生意非常差。  此外他们还被告知,丹容亚路州议员拿督杨爱华勇在一年前前往探访该处时曾经给予承诺,说将会立即安排维修该化粪池的水泵,但直到今天都没有完成。  他所做出的承诺到底在哪里? 该处的人说,拿督杨爱华每年只有一次前来访问该区和进行‘握手会’而已。
