PAP Town Councils to increase ‘service and conservancy’ charges
Posted by temasektimes on July 27, 2012
Seven town councils run by the PAP will increase their Service and Conservancy Charges (S&CC) for flats, shops/offices and market/cooked food stalls from September 2012 due to ‘higher’ operating costs.
The town councils are Bishan-Toa Payoh, Chua Chu Kang, East Coast, Holland-Bukit Panjang, Tanjong Pagar, Tampines and West Coast.
Holland-Bukit Panjang Town Council claimed that the town councils are facing increased costs especially in electricity, maintenance and cleaning.
The increase will be phased over two years to ‘help’ residents cope with the change.
