Are Residents Paying for $1,000 fine committed by the Condominium

‘Four residents were fined on 20 April 2020 for not practising safe distancing in their condominiums and a management corporation or MCST for not closing its common facilities.

In this instance, the residents should know better the consequences of not practising safe distancing.

However, I am concerned over the $1,000 fine imposed on the condominium in Amber Road. Who is responsible for this lapse? Surely, it is the management council which is elected annually to look after the condominium.

And should the council be allowed to use the maintenance funds collected from households for payment of the fine when the offence was committed by the governing Council?

To allow the fine to be paid using the common MCST fund would mean all the residents in the condominium are guilty of the offence or are they?

The Building Control Authority should disallow payment of such fines using MCST funds. In this instance, the management council should fork out the payment from amongst their own council members.

Surely, the residents cannot be held guilty on the offence of not closing the use of common facilities and interalia for not practicing safe distancing rules committed by members of the management council.’

    Response :Use the common MCST fund to pay first (similar to chicken wing payment concept) , maybe next time increase the maintenance fees for all the residents to pay. Next time, may get back a whole chicken. So everything goes very smooth in a round about way of doing payments. Sound similar? Is it similar with the PAP style of doing things?

    It’s the same as citizens paying for mistakes by the taskforce. $60 billion raided from reserve. Billions given to foreign workers for mistakes made by the gov.

    Why you complain about $1,000 and no complain about $billions?

    Reported on Straits Times website :Quote – “…
    Toh Wen Li
    SINGAPORE – Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Education and Manpower Low Yen Ling has come down with dengue fever, placing her among the hundreds of people who have fallen ill in recent days as Singapore enters its peak season for the disease.

    Ms Low is an MP for Chua Chu Kang GRC, home to some of the high-risk areas for dengue in Singapore.

    She said in a Facebook post on Monday (May 11) morning:…

    “…. We need each other, more than ever before – to keep our families and homes safe from dengue.”

    Singapore has seen a surge in dengue infections this year, with about 300 to 400 new reported cases each week, and over 6,900 cases of dengue fever since January – more than double the same period last year.

    The number of cases this year is projected to exceed last year’s high of 16,000.

    The country is now in its traditional peak dengue season, which lasts from May till September….

    Last week, the National Environment Agency announced that Project Wolbachia, the country’s stealth weapon against dengue, would be expanded to Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Batok in an effort to suppress the Aedes aegypti mosquito population in these neighbourhoods.

    Singapore has been studying this programme since 2012. As part of the project, male mosquitoes carrying the Wolbachia bacterium are released to mate with female mosquitoes, causing them to lay eggs that do not hatch.

    Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Batok were chosen for the study because of their consistently high populations of the Aedes aegypti mosquito, which transmits dengue.

    Last September, Mr Liang Eng Hwa (Holland-Bukit Timah GRC) fell victim to the disease too,….

    Dengue fever, which can cause a very high fever, severe headache and joint and muscle pain, killed 20 people last year. The disease claimed seven lives between January and March this year.”Unquote.

    Response :” Dengue claimed seven lives between January and March this year”. I have already shot down that idea of using
    Project Wolbachia in densely populated city Singapore – will never work.Project Wolbachia may work well in big country forest area but not in city.Still such conwomen project can still continue.Is Lee Hsien Loong still sleeping? How many more people need to die from dengue before LHL will take action to haul all those top headed women from Project Wolbachia, Amy Khor Lean Suan, Masagos Zulkifli,NEA, and charge them and send all these people to jail.If no action on these environment people to hold responsibility,it is forever no consistent improvement. LHL should go and look at all those massive fallen leaves clogging the drains that people can easily see around, which are not removed off regularly. Everybody paid tons of billions to S&CC, yet environment is not well kept by Low Yen Ling, Amy Khor Lean Suan and Masagos. Lee Hsien Loong still need to paid total millions of salary dollar to employ them for what? Go hospital, no need ownself pay money?

    Absolutely. They are the rich and affordable people living in condo. That’s a tiny matter of who pay compared to what our gov is doing to save FWs and their their employers. It shouldn’t even brought up here.

    So don’t stay in condominium. Go and buy a HDB flat to stay. After all, next time swimming pool inside condominium may need to wear mask before allow to swim as corona virus may go from the mouth to the swimming pool water and infect everybody in condominium. And barbecue pit in condominium also may need to wear mask. So what is the point of paying for super expensive condominium maintenance fees yet cannot really enjoy. Go and downgrade and buy a bigger HDB flat 4 room, 5 room for a bigger social distance space and pay lesser maintenance fees. And condominium may have lesser foreigner buyer on the market with travel restriction in place in the near future.

    It is crystal clear that non-condo residents cannot enter their condo to use use their swimming pools, children playgrounds, etc. But the condo residents and their children can venture out to use the HDB playgrounds, gardens, exercise areas etc, etc. managed by the TCs, for which the HDB residents paid to TC (service & con charges). What do you think ?
