Tighter checks on carpark wardens promised by HDB

The Straits Times reported that the Housing and Development Board (HDB) has promised to step up its carpark monitoring with tighter checks, after an unsatisfactory report card from the Auditor-General's Office (AGO) on Wednesday.

The AGO's annual report found that both statutory boards had been lax in monitoring their parking wardens. Some of these wardens, who were hired under contracts, failed to check all vehicles, others did not turn up for duty at all.

88 surprise checks conducted by the AGO found five instances where patrolling officers were not present at their patrol sites, despite indicating that they were. It also found 26 instances where wardens did not inspect all vehicles in the carparks, although they were required to do so.

An HDB spokesman said it will be conducting more checks on wardens to ensure compliance. It will also introduce e-parking systems at "more carparks where it is technically feasible to do so". URA will do the same for all of its 200 off-street carparks where feasible.

E-parking systems have already been implemented at 368 of the existing 1,800 HDB carparks. This minimises the need for manual checks by wardens.

Actually I took it to mean that bro Fcw75 is worried even a warden's job will all be given away to the FTs. Lets put aside the fact that the local ones are supposedly "lazy" first tongue.gif

Still trying to find the logic between car park wardens and number of vehicles in a carpark. Are you expecting the car park warden to magically wave their hands and create one lot for you?

At the MSCP opposite, once in a blue moon got a M'sian vehicle parked at the top floor without coupons.
The car can park for days without getting summoned.

So these are the people hogging up the lots due to lax enforcements.
It's known that these wardens don't go all the way up to the top level to check.

Is contracting out parking wardens HDB's way of getting around the political hot potato of employing foreigners?
