PRESS: 威省公共运动设施建设及维修

English version here. 2013年3月13日| 大山脚 我在此非常开心地宣布,上星期我已经指示威省市议会向规划、建设及美化小组提呈一项有关威省公共休闲及运动设施的建议,经已被接纳了。 以下是66个分别在威省区内的运动设施: 区域 羽球 藤球 篮球 网球 排球 总共 威北 1 14 6 0 2 23 威中 9 7 11 1 0 28 威南 2 7 5 1 0 15 总共 12 28 22 2 2 66 这些在前朝政府的人民代议士拨款下所建造的球场设施,都没有根据程序呈上图测予威省市议会,部分甚至没有符合正式规格。因此,这些球场并没有被列入威省市议会的景观规划,也不在其维修维护的计划内。 今年,我们拨出了RM450,000.00的款项来提升及维护建立在公共公园及操场的露天休闲设施,这个款项将会被用在诸如维修毁坏的儿童游乐场、操场维护、小径、围篱等方面。不过,这并没有包括维修球场,因为这些球场建成之后并没有移交给市议会。 无论如何,我们接获民众有关很多球场损坏或没有维修的投诉。过去,这些维修或提升工程都在人民代议士的拨款下所完成的。 公共球场设施建造及维修新政策 为此,在地方政府法令第101(c)项条文下,委员会已经同意: 1) 提供款项维修损坏不堪的球场 2) 采纳新的条规予相关球场 委员会也接受同意维修13个经过审查,处于损坏不堪状况的篮球场。其中2个在威北、8个在威中和3个在威南,预计拨款为RM93,500.00. Taman Desa Palma篮球场状况… Continue reading PRESS: 威省公共运动设施建设及维修
