The rumblings of dissatisfaction over the lack of information surrounding the Spice project has taken a new turn. Concerned MPPP councillors are now calling for a special briefing meeting.
Today, a request was submitted to the MPPP president for the special meeting to be called so that councillors could be properly briefed. It is now up to her to call for the meeting within two weeks.
The extraordinary request for a special meeting came after 10 of the 24 MPPP councillors backed the move.
I find it amazing that MPPP Councillors don’t have enough information about Spice – when you consider that RM50m of Council money (that’s a whole stash of our money) is at stake. Were they even given a copy of the actual agreement? Weren’t the councillors properly briefed about Spice and its implications?
How was the RM50m approved by the Council – if the councillors don’t have enough information?
This is the same Council that scrimps and tries to cut down RM1000 here and RM500 there, ostensibly in a bid to trim expenditure – while few serious questions are raised about the ‘elephant’ (Spice) in the room. A case of penny-wise, pound-foolish?
