The Borneo Post (Sabah) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.”
