CAT NUISANCE AT COSTA RHU

Friday, July 12, 2019

Dear Residents, 

 

Decision taken by Council on the issue of stray cats within the estate. 

 

We write on a matter of common interest within our estate. The Council had over time, taken feedback on the issue of stray cats within the estate from 2 distinct groups. We thank them for making their representations to us and their input have enabled us to make the decisions that we have now made. 

 

There is a group that have no issue with the presence of cats as they control the rat population that had plagued the estate many years ago. A decision was then made by the Council at the advice of the pest consultants many years ago to introduce cats to in order to manage the rat problem. That has led to an effective control of the rat issue but there is now a problem of the growth of the population of stray cats. 

 

 There is another group concerned about the growth of the population of stray cats within the estate. The concern expressed is the large numbers of stray that lead to other issues. They report that cats drink even from the swimming pool, the noise that they make in the wee hours of the morning and the complaints of damage to furniture at the ground floor units. There are also reports of young children (and even adults) being frightened by the cats. 

 

The Council has taken time to deliberate on the matter. Taking into account the feedback and representations which the Council had deliberated on, the Council has decided that cats like most animals within the estate would be treated as pets owned by residents. As such, no stray cats would be permitted. From that decision taken, the Council now issues the following directives:

 

  1. All cats within the estate must be tagged to specific individual owners who are residents and natural persons. This means that no cats are to be tagged to non- natural persons like organisations; 
  2. It follows that cats that are not tagged to individual owners (as set out in 1. Above) will be removed from the estate.
  3. There will be no feeding of cats within the estate. All feeding of cats will be done by the owners of their cats at the vicinity of their own homes and premises. 

 

As a request, the Council asks that owners take all reasonable steps to keep their pet cats within their homes and premises. 

 

With the above directives in place, we trust that the problem of stray cats within the estate would be eradicated and managed effectively. 

 

Thank you.

INCREASING INCIDENCE OF LITTERING FROM HIGH FLOORS

Thursday, March 28, 2019

Dear residents:

This is to highlight the increasing incidence of litter being thrown down from higher floors. From patio areas to patio roof tops of the ground floor units to the swimming pool, we have had recent incidents of litter from higher floors across the estate.

Please see the attached photographs. The console instruments landed at the shallow end of the pool and could have seriously hurt someone. Discarded napkins, milk and noodles being thrown on patio rooftops: these are clearly not the community living standards we want within the estate.

This is a sincere request to residents to lend their support in curbing this nuisance. Please provide any feedback or information that you may have to the  management office and we will ensure prompt action. Offenders should note that littering is a punishable offense under law in Singapore

Thank you

Regards

WETTING OF LIFT AREAS AFTER A SWIM . ELDERLY PERSON SLIPPED AND FELL. 

Monday, March 25, 2019

Dear Residents,

 

Good day everyone,

We have to write to you on the problem of people not drying up after using the swimming pool. Last week, an elderly person slipped and fell from water outside the lift area and inside the lift. A very serious injury could have happened needlessly. The good thing is that another resident, was there to help absorb the fall of that elderly person who is frail and weak. It was fortunate that he was there and a serious incident was prevented. 

We do have to ask that you please dry up with a towel after using the pool and ensure that your children do the same too. If you do let your children use the pool on their own, please also convey this important message to them. 

The tiled areas outside the lifts and the floor of the lift can be very slippery when they become wet. We do have a lot of elderly people and their bones are weaker with age. Very serious injury can be avoided if we all practise good habits and good sense in thinking of their safety and well - being. The elderly can suffer fatal injuries and we have to avoid that at all costs in the Estate. 

Your kind understanding on this matter is really appreciated. Thank you so much. 

 

Best Regards,

MCST NO. 2345
