SUPP Public Complaints Bureau Chief cum Kota Sentosa Branch Chairman, Wilfred Yap have been consistently approached by the residents of  Stampin Resettlement Scheme  during his regular “turun padang” activity to the area with SUPP members.

The residents have on numerous occasions been complaining about the poor road and drainage condition which are blocking and impeding  the  flow of water causing stagnant ponding of water and flash flooding every time it rains heavily. As such, the residents had requested for clearing of rubbish and overgrown weeds and improvement works to be carried out on the earth drains to prevent flash flooding and waterlogged roads in view of the coming rainy season.

Instead of just complaining, SUPP Public Complaints Bureau hopes that residents will also take proactive steps  not to throw rubbish indiscriminately into the drains which is not only unsightly but which will clogged up the drains and cause flooding.

As an interim measure, SUPP Public Complaints Bureau Chief, Wilfred Yap have on behalf of the residents requested  Kuching South City Council and Drainage & Irrigation Department to urgently take immediate action to resolve the complaints of the residents.

SUPP Public Complaints Bureau also appeals to the Federal or State Government to assist the residents of Stampin Resettlement Scheme by allocating development funds to resolve the problems of the poor road and drainage situation.

SUPP Public Complaints Bureau is always ready to lend a helping hand to the anyone facing  problems or who come across problems of public interest but does not know how to deal with it. Anyone requiring assistance can always call SUPP Public Complaint’s mobile number at 016-7797688 or 082-246999 or go direct to SUPP Head Office to request for assistance.
