Yg Bhg Datuk Seri Ahmad Fuad Ismail, Datuk Bandar Kuala Lmpur and his officers met the MPs on 18-03-2009 from 5 pm to 8 pm.
Many issues/problems have been brought to the attention of Datuk Bandar by MPs in Wilayah Persekutuan.
Danau Kota Uptown Pasar Malam
DBKL officer informed the meeting that the operation hours of the pasar malam has been cut short by one hour to 3:00 am nightly. The officer did also inform that DBKL has approved 30 new licences for Koperasi Bela rakyat (KOBERA).
I have brought to the attention of Datuk Bandar that KOBERA has not been registered with the Co-peratives Department and therefore, it was wrong for DBKL to approve 30 licences to an illegal body. DBKL officer has no answer to this. I also brought to the attention of Datuk Bandar that the more than 500 residents of the area have signed a petition asking for the said pasar malam to be moved away from residential area due noise pollution, traffic congestions and other social problems.
Datuk Bandar has agreed in principle to move the said pasar malam to a suitable place away from residential area. He immediately instructed his officers to take immediate steps to find new location for the said pasar malam. Datuk Amin, the Timbalan Ketua Pengarah of DBKL and Tuan Ramly Othman , the Pengarah of Jabatan Pengurusan dna Peniaga Kecil, have been given the task to move the said pasar malam.
Many parents in Wangsa Maju are complaining that many cyber cafes in Wangsa Maju are involved in online gambling.
Datuk Bandar informed that in September 2009 DBKL has submitted draft regulations to Ministry of Wilayah Persekutuan for consideration to control cyber cafes in Wilayah Persekutuan. DBKL is still waiting for respond from the Ministry. However, Datuk Bandar has directed its officers to raid cyber cafes that allowed online gambling.
Datuk Bandar has instructed his officers to look into the flash flood problems in Kg Kuantan.
