Just click on both articles to read in full size. Now another Mr Chan from the district council is planning to send a "team of volunteers" to inspect about 100 public areas + this will take 6 months........Unbelievable.
Besides this, it is said that some councillors complained about smoking customers outdoors at the tables of "Gaia". Now the other Mr Chan is saying that they have been "set up......we should not be the one make the decision."
Then why they first make the decision then ?
Once the "public outcry" starting they find out that there should be a "guideline" from the Government, used as a reference to make this decisions.
The producing of this "guideline" will need a "public consultation" up-front and will approx. take 12 months. The "Gaia" can still stay out-doors until October - but this is only 5 months.
So this is how some district councillors are helping the local business to survive in times that difficult ! Do they have nothing else to do ?
