SHAH ALAM, JAN 24: Selayang Municipal Council (MPS) is offering 550 trading lots in conjunction with Thaipusam 2017.
Corporate Department Director Mohamad Zin Masoad said MPS would have the permit sale and Thaipusam trading lot ballot at Dewan Beringin, Taman Sri Gombak, Batu Caves, on February 2.
“From this total, 119 lots measuring 7×7 are for barbers at a rate of RM200.
“431 lots are for ordinary trading and offered at a rate of RM150,” he said in a statement.
He added that this year MPS will introduce the hotspot concept with lots in high visitor traffic areas with a 10×10 feet area.
“As many as 39 hotspot lots have been identified and each lot will cost RM500,” he said.
He also reminded Thaipusam lot permit applicants who sell food and drinks have to have a food handling certificate for the applicant and helper in addition to a health check confirmation and Typhoid IV shot.
For barbers, operators only need to get the TY2 (Typhoid) shot.
“Traders are reminded to maintain the cleanliness of the area as well as the standard of food sold to avoid any unwanted issues like health related issues including contagious diseases.
“In addition, all traders are asked to obey the State Government policy and not use plastic bags and polystyrene containers,” he said.
