MELAKA, Nov 18 -- The Hang Tuah Jaya Municipal Council (MPHTJ) is offering various incentives and promotions to the public, including traders, in its administrative area for the duration of the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO).
Melaka Chief Minister Datuk Seri Sulaiman Md Ali said the incentives include a 50 per cent special rental reduction for traders at food courts, stalls, markets and kiosks for two months, namely December this year and January next year.
“A 70 per cent discount on compounds will also be given but the payment will have to be made during the CMCO period and can be made at MPHTJ counters or mobile vans.
“The discount, however, does not apply to compounds relating to land works, entertainment outlets, environment and building control,” he said in a statement today.
MPHTJ is also offering exemptions for trader’s licence fees and exemption of fines for late renewals of all types of licences till Dec 31, he added.
Sulaiman also said that the council is having a rental promotion for shoplots at Melaka Mall at a price of RM1 per square foot with only a month’s deposit, in addition to free promotion space with the rental of the premises. Tenants only need to pay for the necessary business licence until the end of this year.
He said that the public and traders should take advantage of the incentives and promotions offered by the council, which he hoped would help alleviate the burden of those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I also hope that other local councils in Melaka can offer incentives and promotions that can help the people who live in their administrative areas,” he said.
