The Chairman had been battling on the quality and coverage / scope of grass cutting work for the last several months against the developer and contractor, he also eagerly seeking influence from Ahli Majlis and meeting the Director of Landscape for a more proper workdone. However the handover of the manicipal work was without any official notice neither from the developer nor the Majlis until the last quit rent assessment hearing as confirmed by the Pengarah of landscape that grass cutting, drain desilting and maintenance of infrastructure work was already taken over by the Majlis from the developer during the answering of questionaires raised by the chairman.
The developer failed to discharge its responsibility again on the official handover of the maintenance works to the Majlis without formally informing or making any courtesy call to the RA. Despite the fact, with firm determination, repeated assertion and insistence from the chairman, the contractor appointed by the Majlis now extended its coverage to include lawn trimming out side the perimeter fencing and to ensure the fencing is clear from any creeper and grass. Prior to this, the contractor was relunctant to cut any grass out side the perimeter fencing and claimed that it was not within their scope.
The grass trimming / shrubs clearing on both sides of the existing chain linked fence can not be compromised or taken lightly as TPP8A fencing is of very much inferior quality compared to that of 8B which comes with a very durable and solid concrete block and galvanized mild steel reinfored fabric mesh fencing.
Perhaps the PP8A RA needs to consider seriously to set up a sinking fund now for the replacement of existing chain linked fence to a more durable and solid concrete base wall fencing with galvanized fabric mesh (similar to picture below) before it starts falling apart in a very short future.
