KUCHING, Oct 31: Miri City Council (MCC) is in the process of instituting court proceedings against hard-core defaulters who have defied payment of parking compounds.

Miri Mayor Adam Yii Siew Sang said these defaulters had taken no heed to reminders and, subsequently, a Letter of Demand which had previously been forwarded to them by the MCC.

“Under the first phase of the court action, a total of 1,000 cases, of which each has an accumulated outstanding compound fee of more than RM3,000, would be filed for the court proceeding and, in this connection, MCC may consider engaging its panel of legal advisers for such process,” he said in a statement today.

He also mentioned that according to the MCC Parking Section, more than RM2.7 million in compound fees remain unpaid as of September this year.

Previously, MCC had, as a kind gesture, offered a 50 per cent discount for paying MCC parking compound fines during its 17th Miri City Day Anniversary Celebration, of which the amnesty period had also been extended until July 31 this year.

At the same time, MCC reminded property owners that today is the last day to pay their assessment bills without surcharge for the second half of this year.

“The Sarawak government has continued to subsidise 25 per cent of the second half of this year’s assessment bills, including the Miri holdings under the jurisdiction of Miri City Council.

“Payment can be made at Sarawak State Service Counter at UTC Miri or online through S Pay Global (formerly Sarawak Pay) App,” he emphasised. — DayakDaily
