Taichung City Mayor Jason Hu held the 102nd Managers Report Meeting on August 22. He demanded that all units be aware of preventing public accidents from occurring. He also praised the Environmental Protection Bureau’s rubbish collection and cleaning team for their great efforts which received praises from the public as well.
Mayor Hu pointed out that the basement of a house in JinChun Li in the North District was flooded with water. That building has been placed under public auction by the court due to loan problems, and hence the lack of management of this building has created a public hazard, which Taichung citizens have reported to the government for remedy. As a result, the neighborhood leader has been asked to try and drain the flood water.
Mayor Hu believes that this case gives us food fro thought. If a home is flooded with water and no dealt with for a long time, would it present the public with a huge hazard? Government agents related to such matters should think of ways to deal with such problems. In order to maintain public safety, blind spots should not exist when dealing with such matters. Should such blind spots be discovered, they must be eliminated as soon as possible to improve executive efficiency.
He also expressed that during one public appearance, a lady thanked him and told him that the Environmental Protection Bureau’s cleaning team has an excellent service attitude while they are working, often volunteering to help citizens pick up their rubbish, as well as thanking citizens when they hand over their rubbish bags. This lady was most impressed. This goes to show that any kind of service provided by the government makes an impression on the public, so that any work or sacrifice done by the public would not go unnoticed.
