“Eventually, this will help the city become a more attractive tourist destination and also attract new investors,” he said.
On a separate matter, the mayor said business and advertising licences could be renewed between now and Dec 31.
He urged those who needed to renew their licences to do so within the said period to avoid being fined.
“Those who settle their payments late would be subjected to a fine which will increase according to how late they make their payments,” he said.
He added that those who made payments in February would be fined RM50, in March RM100, in April RM150 and May to Dec, RM200,” he said.
Mohd Jaffar said those who had yet to receive their notices for renewal should bring along their current business licence and two passport photos of themselves to the Licensing Department counter at MBJB.
