An interesting article about Malaysia.
Penang government will continue to carry out maintenance works in all eligible public and private housing schemes in the state.
This assurance was given by state Local Government, Housing, Town and Country Planning Committee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo after he had announced the state government’s financial assistance for the upgrading of three lifts at Sri Saujana Apartment in Jalan Macallum today.
The total cost for the repairs is RM239,400. Under the Penang Maximum 80% Maintenance Fund (TPM80PP), the state government will bear RM191,520 (80%) while the management committee will bear RM47,880 (20%).
“This clearly shows that the Penang government cares for the people and will continue to help them as much as possible to alleviate their burden, even during this Covid-19 pandemic.
“From 2008 to September 2021, the Penang government has spent almost RM285 million on maintenance projects in all public and private housing schemes throughout the state of Penang.
“Economically, we will assist where we can. Covid-19 will not stop the Penang government from doing its part. We will not let Covid beat us; we will beat Covid,” Jagdeep told a press conference during his visit to the apartment today.
Under the TPM80PP, he said a total of RM45 million has been spent by the state government, involving a total of 283 applications for 479 projects.
The bulk of the expenses go to upgrading or replacing the elevators followed by water tank repairs, he said.
Pengkalan Kota assemblyman Daniel Gooi thanked Jagdeep and the state government for understanding the plight of the residents there.
“With the approval of the lift upgrading for Sri Saujana, I am happy to say that today is a historical moment as all strata buildings in Gat Lebuh Macallum have at least one maintenance project approved by the state government.
“Even though we are hit by the pandemic, the state government will not stop in helping to maintain eligible public and private housing schemes either through repainting the building or repairing the lifts,” Gooi said.
