Pest Control scandal must be resolved during the up and coming Subang Jaya Municipal Council full board meeting.

(Petaling Jaya ,
The pest control concession scandal must be resolved during the up and coming Subang Jaya Municipal Council full board meeting on 28th August 2006, in which the Council should table an explanation to the public on the specific reasons why the Council resort to giving away concession in pest control, why the concession is only given to a certain companies which are neither accredited by Pesticide Board (under the Department of Agriculture) nor Pest Control Association of Malaysia (PCAM)
The Council should also explain of whether it is prepared to take a stand to admit that the selection process is conducted through an open-tender system and whether the Council is prepared to come clear by revealing the content of the contract for public scrutiny.
In this, MCA Adun for Subang Jaya cum MPSJ Councilor YB Lee Hwa Beng had previously promised that he will bring this matter up in the coming full board council meeting in August. I hope that he can keep his word by not only bringing this matter in the meeting but also trying to resolve and fight for the rights of all business operators in Subang Jaya to push the Council to withdraw this ruling which was clearly a decision made without proper consultation with all stakeholders, especially those business operators under the jurisdiction of the Council.
In order to ensure that the issue is brought to the attention of the councilors and the mayor, DAP Selangor will attend the full board council meeting.
