Ipoh City Hall should provide better services
THE situation in Canning Garden and other housing estates in Ipoh is pathetic. The Majlis Bandaraya Ipoh (MBI) is extremely lackadaisical in attending to public grouses.
These areas are filled with overgrown grass and clogged drains. This is possibly due to there being “zero” checking by the officers in charge.
The agents given contracts to clean the various housing estates do a half baked job or no job at times.
Why should the public pay taxes or quit rent with such poor service rendered. Red tape should be reduced because the front liners are still poor and the top guns should start listening to public complaints.
The public is actually sick, fed-up and tired of complaining repeatedly with no hope coming their way. Does the public need to complain to the Biro Pengaduan Awam for action to be taken? This makes no sense in a civil society.
Another issue cropping up is the increasing prevalence of dog attacks because more residents are keeping guard dogs, including vicious ones, because the fear of robberies.
I hope the Perak police can instill more confidence in the public. These dogs like Rottweilers are a common in housing estates.
Housing estates are no more safe places to go for walks with the family, as these temperamental dogs, especially the ones not monitored by the owners, are street killers even when not provoked.
A human life is very precious and that is why the almighty gave us minds to think. Dogs when untrained follow their animal instincts which can cause injuries or unwanted deaths to innocent citizens. Saying sorry after a death is fine but the damage done to the family can never be undone.
The authorities in charge in Perak should make sure these owners are trained to keep such vicious dogs, before giving licences.
I hope Perak will be a better place to live in if the authorities work diligently for the citizens.
Policies made should be enforced.
