Taman Batu Flat residents are facing expensive water charges Gerakan arranged dialogue with water supply company to solve the problem Press statement by Gerakan Youth Secretary General Dr. Dominic Lau

 

Last Friday (28 September), Gerakan Batu Division organised a dialogue session between the residents and water supply company in the Sentul Taman Batu flat area.

Gerakan Youth Secretary General Dr. Dominic Lau who participated the dialogue session pointed out that they had earlier received a complaint from the residents of the flat area on 19 September, claiming that they were imposed with unreasonable water charges by the management committee that manage the flat area. It is understood that the management committee were collecting about RM40 water charges from each flat unit without referring to the water meter. This is unfair to families which only use a small amount of water. Therefore, the residents have sought help from Gerakan as they hoped to pay the water bill directly to the water supply company without through the management committee.

“In this regard, Gerakan Batu Division immediately contacted the water supply company and discussed the possibility for the residents to pay the water bill directly, at the same time we also held a dialogue session. Through the dialogue, the water supply company agreed as long as the water meter follows the standards stipulated by the water company and 80% of the residents are agreed, the residents will be able to pay their water bill directly to the water supply company,” said Dr. Dominic Lau.

“Besides, we also discovered that the water meter of some flat units do not follow the standards as stipulated by the water supply company, but we will arrange the residents to change it as soon as possible, because according to the representatives of the water supply company as he pointed out, the water charges would be cheaper on a new water meter that meets the standards, furthermore, any complaints that are related to water meter will be attended,” added Dr. Dominic Lau.

Dr. Dominic Lau also added that this is the follow-up work by Gerakan Batu Division regarding the livelihood problems faced by the residents. Gerakan would continue to serve the residents of Batu parliamentary constituency, solve their problems and improve their quality of life.
