ALOR SETAR, Aug 26 (Bernama) -- The Alor Setar City Council (MBAS) is
seeking to streamline the parking charges in all local authority areas in the
state, including those operated by private companies, Mayor Datuk Mat Noh Ahmad
The initiative will be enforced upon receiving the green light from the
state government, he added.
"We don''t want to see some consumers paying parking charges that are too
high or too low. So when the charges are streamlines, consumers will be paying
the same rate across the state," he said.
Mat Noh said MBAS had also presented a proposal to amend by-laws concerning
the spelling of the name of this capital city, from Alor Star to Alor Setar.
"We will carry out the change in stages because if we do it in one go, it
will involve a huge cost," he said.
