Looks like the sh!t has finally started to hit the ceiling...

DBKL with its sex scandal and the mayor...
MPSJ with numerous known issues and its councillors...
MPAJ with the Steven restaurant debacle...
MPPJ take the cake... it actually committed perjury in court by submitting falsified documents ... Question is, will the Minister (OKT) in charge take action or will he conveniently forget about it...

Now if MPPJ has the balls to fabricate something like this... can MPSJ do the same?

PETALING JAYA: Petaling Jaya residents will be expected to pay 10% more for assessment rates next year.

This was contained in the Petaling Jaya Municipal Council's 2006 budget proposal which was presented to the full board on Thursday by president Datuk Ahmad Termizi Puteh.

The increase however does not apply to assessments for flats, apartments and condominiums.

Compared to last year, the increase is expected to boost the council's revenue from assessment by an estimated RM20,500,000 to RM145,000,000 in 2006.

The assessment rate for all residential properties in the Sections, SS and PJS 2, 4, 6 and part of PJS10, Seri Setia and Kampung Baru Damansara (Section 17A) will have to incur a 7.7% assessment rate as opposed to the 7% rate previously.

Non-residential properties in these areas will incur a 8.8% assessment rate.

The rate for all properties in Kampung Kayu Ara, Kayu Ara Indah, Kampung Cempaka, traditional village areas in the MPPJ area and agricultural land in Petaling Jaya Utara is 5.5%- the lowest rate in the municipality.

This rate also applies to residences and empty lots in Sri Damansara, Mayang Mas and Megah Mas, however other types of properties in this area will have to incur a 6.6% assessment rate.

Meanwhile low cost house owners in Petaling Jaya Selatan and Petaling Jaya Utara will have to pay a 7.7% assessment rate

All properties and areas not mentioned above are to incur 8.8% assessment rate.

The budget advocated thrift which includes doing away with ineffective expenditures like study tour costs, parties and consultation costs for private consultants among others.

The council which will attain city status next March wants to improve and upgrade the services and facilities in the municipality.

The increase oso to help pay for the pending court cost ! :p :rolleyes:

Former DBKL mayor when caught using bogus PhD claimed that it was the press who "awarded" him the doctorate. But I have seen with my own 4 eyes a book edited by him (guidebook for the old Peperiksaan Am Kerajaan) when he was an officer at JPA with the Dr in front of his name. :rolleyes: :p

Be grateful that this country have so much resources to keep it going & to support the level of corruption as i fear the worst when the day oil will run dry & even if the people wish to they can't afford to be corrupted. Live the good times & let the future generation pay for our excesses. I only hope the world will come to an end before that happens. our country is able to be what it is to-day not because of the "good govt" but because it is bless with balck gold so enjoy it while it last :p
