MARINE PARADE TC: FUNERAL REQUEST REJECTED NOT FOR POLITICAL REASONS

We refer to Mr Sanson Ng’s Facebook post on his friend’s encounter with Marine Parade Town Council and Essential Maintenance Service Unit (EMSU) to book a multi-purpose hall for a wake. The Town Council is mindful that frequent use of the void deck space or multi-purpose hall for funerals will cause inconvenience to other residents living in the block. Hence, the Town Council restricts the use of the void deck space or multi-purpose hall to residents within the block or who are living near the block.

And it is always a pain waiting for the lifts at the ground floor. While most parents and children patiently queue up outside the lifts, there will be some inconsiderate parents who will cut queue from the sides thereby depriving others who are in the queue to get into the lifts.

MARINE PARADE TC: CHESS PLAYING BANNED BECAUSE PLAYERS ARE A PUBLIC NUISANCE

We would like to clarify that the poster was only placed at Blk 11 Haig Road and it is not a standard poster of our Town Council.

In addition, the chess players and onlookers sometimes will block and obstruct the pathway of a covered linkway, causing inconveniences to others. As such, this poster seeks to advise and remind these chess players not to play their games there and to be considerate to others.

I really don't know what those people at marine parade town council is thinking, the blocks in my neighbourhood are filled with pigeon roosting all over the expansion room area and leaving their waste matter all over the balcony areas to the extent you can't even open your windows on days that have no winds because of the smell from the waste. These areas are not able to be cleaned by residents unless TCs used scaffolding lifts due to it's height and inaccessibility. Other problems include damaged lift doors and lift lights and as well dangerous walkway tiles that are cracking and popping up that has been made known to then for god knows how many times and no one ever comes to fix them.

WHY THE HOT-BLOODED FIGHT OVER MACPHERSON SMC?

WP are very smart in a sense where they stick to their plans and play the waiting game, letting the action and drama play out in NSP which affects only NSP’s image, not theirs. Lesson 1, the one who strategize in the long-term, instead of making quick decisions rashly, only gains to win. Bigger shark eating smaller fish. Lesson 2, more power = more control over the playing field = less prominent parties will give way to us. Does this mean more parties will have to give way to WP in the future?
