Parking app for motorists in Tawau
TAWAU: The Tawau Municipal Council (MPT) yesterday launched a hassle-free parking solution mobile application called ‘JomParking’ to enable motorists to park their vehicles in the district without having to purchase coupons.
Its president, Alijus Sipil said the application, the first of its kind in Sabah, was now available for download for free via Apple App Store or Google Play.
“The users can pay the parking charges anytime without having to be at the (designated) parking zone at that particular time.
“If they run out of tokens, then the users can top up online or via registered agents,” he told reporters after the launch of the application by State Assistant Resource Development and Information Technology Minister Datuk Hamisa Samat.
Meanwhile, Alijus said the MPT would temporarily close down ‘tahfiz’ (Quran memorisation) centres in the district without the Certificate of Completion and Compliance by the Fire and Rescue Department as well as those which were deemed as highrisk, for a certain period of time as determined by the department.
“We will call up (tahfiz) operators who are found to have not complied with the building occupancy requirements and advise them on the safety compliance.”
