Facelift plan for Penang City Hall

A total of RM6mil will be spent over the next two years for the upgrading of City Hall at the Esplanade in Penang.

The Penang Municipal Council’s (MPPP) financial management sub-committee alternate chairman Tan Hun Wooi said the allocation would come from the 2011 and 2012 budgets.

“However, the allocation is still subjected to approval at the administrative meeting for the 2011 budget in August.

“The furniture cost to replace and refurbish the broken and old furniture has also been included in the RM6mil allocation,” he said during the full council meeting on Friday.

Tan said the committee had also approved a total of RM95,000 for repair works in City Hall under the council’s 2010 additional budget.

“The allocation comes from the saving of wages of vacant positions in the council that have yet to be filled up.

“The repair works include repairing the roof and toilet ceiling, and replacing the leaky gutters and damaged lamps.”

Hmm...now I'm thinking...is this money worth to spend???
