Message from the JMB Chairman
Dear Committee Members and Residents
What the residents are asking is a very simple thing to fulfill yet it seems so difficult.
First lets set a date within this week by thursday night to discuss the current issue without any kind of resentment and open mind. Since all us are true believers of GOD ..why we have to behave like enemies to one another. Lets find some good solution to reconcile and management the building accordingly.
The main issue is not the committee members. Just the total residents are not able to accept the manner and conduct of our friend Raymond and his wife. So what is the big deal to sustain them in their position. Being a voluntary why there were suggestion pay a salary to chang lin san. did we force her to sit at office by any means. or did we force raymond to take control anything. Do you realise that security guys and few contractors are not too happy with the current way of managing same goes to the residents.
Have we appointed any person in proper manner since the new committee took over. Even any person being appointed as office bearer shall require their full details like full name and NRIC to be stated clearly and their duties and responsibilities fixed. None is done yet some claims to be office bearers on the their own accord. Worst trying to exude full power as if they are beyond any control and regulations.
Being a JMB representative for the residents, what are your fighting for, other then making good Sinaran Ukay and maintain harmony. Why have to form rules which is not practical for Sinaran like limited hours for visitors. It applies to be considered if the parking is over congested. Forming a rule must be pragmatic not simply to show who is in control or merely to develop hatred.
Well there are many talks saying that previous management and committee did not do good. Well fine if that is the perception. But trying to claim handyman's salary which has not been official appointed through petty cash..is also unethical. As new committee and management with keen interest to reduce service charge too has not been addressed properly till today. WHY? I have previously suggested to allow discount of 20% on current charge as inducement for prompt payment and run the management with reduced budget. If it works for a year than, we can set it fised for the following years to come. Why hasty decision. Its easy for people to seeking reduction but for the management and the committee is the head ache as if we own the building and shall be answerable to residents all the time. So the best to go along with what majority wants amicably and guide people to follows rules from year to year as form of rehabilition.
I heard that COBARA advised the repair of swimming pool, but as far i spoken to CObara chairman- Sharul and Eriko the coordinator, no such advised was given to Sinaran Ukay. But i have repaired the tiles before due to soil sinking.. if you have reason to do so, you do and annouce before you carry out or seek suggestion as much possible to safe guard your self. Any good intention may go wrong if done improperly.
The over all goal that the new committee should hold on is to the make good and improve the situation by appointing third parties who could take order and show respect to all members as Buidling Manager, Clerk, Handyman and Electrician. Should show that you walk the talk without any conflict of interest and transparency to highest regards. I used invite members who are not committee or even if they tenants before and conduct residents meeting at least 2 -3 months once. But since the new committee, no residents meeting is held except the one i conduct without JMC present. What are your trying to prove and how long or how many more years you will be a committee member.
One of the suggestion for security control to add in, We could repair the barrier gate and activate the access card. This way we know residents with card will enter and those going out will have the security to open for them. This will reduce outsiders driving in freely. Parking chargers for extra cars could be carried out for extra cars if the matter adressed properly for minimal chargers for start and shall be explained through meetings not by email and simple circulars. The right approach is important. Many more things could be achieved amicably if brought to total discussion. Instead of few JMC members deciding as they feel right.
Personally, me and tuty has no intention to run the management and for me not desperate to be a chairman, even during the previous AGM i asked to leave out. You may ask to remove my signature or tender my resignation, is not a issue to me. Since many are speaking about GOD.. GOD will judge us accordingly.
Avoid all this silly bickering and get to reconcile with good faith and open heart. Appoint outsiders or person who could take charge as what people want to do and run according to proper guidelines.
CAN WE AGREE FOR MEETING ON
THURSDAY 11th FEB AT 9:00pm.
Lets reconcile and make good with sincere thoughts.
