KAPIT: The Kapit District Council (KDC) has been called on to maintain the cleanliness of drains in front of and behind shophouses here.
In making the appeal, the Kapit Coffee Shop and Restaurant Owners’ Association (KCROA) said a clean environment is necessary to run their businesses.
“As food and drink operators, we are told to keep our premises clean.
“Thus, our concern is also outside the shop lots, especially the drains in front and at the back of the shop lots, to ensure they are free from foul smells and flowing freely to prevent them from becoming breeding grounds for deadly dengue mosquitoes,” chairman Ma Tian Ho said after visiting eateries here with committee
He pointed out that prior to the Movement Control Order, the drains in the town were flushed once a month.
“We look forward to the health and environment department continuing with the drain and road surface cleaning,” he said.
Meanwhile, Ma said on Tuesday (May 12), only 30 per cent of food outlets here were open fully for business with dine in customers, 55 per cent continued with takeaways only, while the remaining 15 per cent stayed closed.
He added operators were found fully complying with the Conditional Movement Control Order standard operating procedures.
KCROA has 105 registered members.
