THE au­thor­i­ties re­spon­si­ble for man­ag­ing Ta­man Sun­gai Hi­jau Flat in Fraser’s Hill, Pa­hang, have been urged to take im­me­di­ate ac­tion to clean up its vicin­ity. De­spite be­ing within the state’s high­land re­sort, the low-cost flat’s sur­round­ings were found lit­tered with rub­bish, es­pe­cially near the dump­sters.

Be­sides be­ing an eye­sore, the rub­bish poses a se­ri­ous health hazard to res­i­dents and vis­i­tors alike as it may be a breed­ing ground for Aedes mos­qui­toes and rats.

This is de­spite this year be­ing Visit Pa- hang Year.

A sign­board put up by the Fraser’s Hill Town Coun­cil ex­hort­ing the pub­lic to keep Ta­man Sun­gai Hi­jau clean.
