MPSP: Infrastructure development plan to be hastened

BUTTERWORTH (May 21): The Seberang Prai Municipal Council (MPSP) will speed up its infrastructure development plan following its upgrade to city council status.

The Star reports that State Housing, Local Government, Town and Country Planning Com­mittee chairman Jagdeep Singh Deo said they were drawing up a masterplan for major infrastructure on the mainland.

“A meeting has been scheduled to discuss efforts to bring the council to greater heights,” he was quoted as saying.

“Every inch of Penang is now a city. This has brought added responsibility and service delivery will need to be heightened as the people will have higher expectations.

“It’s not easy to get to the top and once you get there, it’s difficult to remain there.

“I want them to continue providing quality service to the people,” Jagdeep said.

An official announcement would be made after two or three weeks, he said. 

“The Cabinet has made a decision and the paperwork is being processed now.

“We will be informed once they get the consent of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

“The main thing is that a decision has been made, as announced by the Housing and Local Government Ministry, meaning that MPSP has obtained city status,” he said.
