MIRI: The enforcement officers of Miri City Council (MCC) are ready for its ‘Ops Patuh’ operation targeting illegal gambling operations in the city.

Miri mayor Adam Yii said the enforcement operation, which is expected to be conducted early this month, is an integrated operation jointly conducted with relevant government authorities.

“The council is committed to conducting the enforcement operation, particularly to weed out illegal gambling activities in the city,” he said during a full council meeting yesterday.

In view of that, Yii reminded business operators to display their trading licences at their outlets.

On the city’s coastal cleanliness, the mayor praised a group of volunteers for taking the initiative to collect rubbish, such as plastic bottles and washed-up logs and wood chips, from the city coastal line, adding that the council will come out with some funding to clean up the area.

He was also happy to note that Pujut Resident Committee is planning to conduct its next ‘gotong-royong’ activity along the beach after the success of a similar event recently, while pointing out that it was important for the council to intensify its city cleanliness efforts to lure more tourists for Visit Miri Year next year.

MCC secretary Morshidi Frederick and city engineer Chai Ko Het were among those present with Yii yesterday.
