SHAH ALAM, AUG 9: Operators who violates their business license conditions face a maximum of RM1,000 fine from Kuala Langat District Council (MDKL).
Its Yang Dipertua, Mohamad Zain A Hamid said, in one operation, they had found many food operators placing tables and chairs in parking spaces, cooking on sidewalks as well as cyber centre operators.
Mohamad Zain said, they are serious in curbing the issue to avoid risking accidents and other unwanted incidents when people are enjoying their meal.
“These situations create negative impact for MDKL and these operators freely carry out their businesses in prohibited areas,” he said in a statement.
For the offense of putting tables and chairs on unauthorised areas, business owners can be fined under Section 48 (1) d Act 133, a maximum of RM500 for the first offence and RM1000 following that.
Meanwhile for the offence of allowing children under 12 years old to be at cyber centres without the presence of their parents or legal guardians, business owners can be fined under the 2007 MDKL Cyber Centre and Cyber café By-laws under By-law 22 which allows for a maximum of RM1,000 fine.
In a recent operation, enforcement officers in Saujana Putra branch had issued 19 fines comprising 11 notices for illegal table and chairs placement, 7 notices for kitchen obstruction and 1 for cyber centre.
“All operators in this district are reminded to comply to MDKL’s rules and regulations to avoid being fined,” he said.
