3 town councils marked down for overdue conservancy charges in MND report, with 1 citing renovation delays

3 town councils marked down for overdue conservancy charges in MND report, with 1 citing renovation delays
All 17 town councils received the highest rating in estate cleanliness and maintenance, as well as lift performance, in the latest annual management report released on Wednesday (June 29). However, three were marked down for their management of service and conservancy charges (S&CC) arrears.

One town council attributed its S&CC arrears to homeowners facing delays in renovating and occupying their new Build-To-Order (BTO) flats.

At the opposition-held Aljunied-Hougang Town Council (AHTC), it has — for the first time since the Workers’ Party took over after the 2011 General Election — received a “green” score in the four components assessed.

S&CC ARREARS

The three town councils marked down for their management of unpaid S&CC fees were Chua Chu Kang, Jurong-Clementi and Sengkang, which all received an “amber” rating.

The three town councils were marked down for having 40 to 60 per cent of the monthly collectible S&CC for the town overdue, or for having four to six in 100 households that owed arrears for three months or more, MND said in a statement.
