From 1 April 2017, Town Councils have to set aside 14% of the Service and Conservancy Charges (S&CC) collections and Government Grants into the new Lift Replacement Fund (LRF) as directed by the Ministry of National Development (MND) to further enhance the safety and reliability of lifts within our Town. This comes on top of the 26% contribution into the Sinking Fund, which is used for large-scaled cyclical maintenance and lift upgrading to rejuvenate the estate, creating a more facilitated and conducive environment for residents to live in.

For the remaining percentage of the S&CC, it will be used for routine maintenance works such as:

Water and Electricity

Utilities such as water for monthly block and carpark washing as well as electricity for providing lift services and lighting at public areas.

Cleaning Works

Daily cleaning of the estate.

Indirect Operating Expenditure

General administrative support for executing the Town Council’s duties.

Repairs & Maintenance

Routine maintenance of the estate including building, sanitary and electrical works.

Lift Maintenance

Monthly servicing and repairs of lifts.
