MPSJ to take homeowners to court

Star: SUBANG JAYA: The Subang Jaya Municipal Council (MPSJ) has given an ultimatum to property owners in USJ 11. Ensure your premises are free of mosquito larva or be taken to court.
“The council will take them straight to court,” Subang Jaya assemblyman Datuk Lee Hwa Beng said yesterday.
“As the number of dengue cases has not been reduced, MPSJ will no longer be issuing summonses to guilty parties in this neighbourhood. So far, MPSJ has taken two people to court. One of them was found guilty and fined RM500.”
“The RM100 summon is too light for the offenders to fear,” added Lee, who said USJ 11 constituted about one-third of the total 644 summonses issued to houses in Subang Jaya.
He said that from next week, notices would be put up at the 90 unoccupied houses in the neighbourhood as a last call to the owners to respond to the council.
“Under the law, we have the power to enter their houses and will do so if they do not respond within a week,” said Lee.
