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