In conjunction with Kota Kinabalu City Day on 2 February 2018, Kota Kinabalu City Hall will be holding an Amnesty Day for compounds issued under the Kota Kinabalu City By-laws (Provisions of Parking Places) (Coupon Parking) 2014.
Assistant Minister to the Chief Minister cum Minister in-charge of City Hall, YB Datuk Ir. Edward Yong said that compounds issued under the said by-laws, involving illegal parking and coupon parking offences, will only be charged RM10 for each compound.
Other than that, motorists who have arrears of parking tickets (under the previous parking ticket system before coupon system was implemented) will also be given discounts, whereby vehicle owners only pay RM10 for each vehicle to settle the arrears.
Datuk Edward said the Amnesty Day is decided after having discussed with Mayor Datuk Yeo Boon Hai, with the approval from City Hall's Board of Advisors.
The Amnesty Day is held in conjunction with the 18th City Day celebration with the aim to facilitate and help motorists to settle their parking compound and old parking tickets.
Members of the public are urged to take this opportunity to pay their outstanding parking compounds and tickets at the payment counters, ground floor, DBKK building which will be opened from 8.00am to 9.30pm, on Feb 2.
Other than the Amnesty Day, City Hall is also organising other activities to celebrate the City Day such as the flag raising ceremony at 2pm in Padang Merdeka then followed by a street parade from Padang Merdeka to DBKK building.
Stalls will also be opened in DBKK building compound on that day and a mini concert will be held from 7pm to 10.30pm at the DBKK parking area. Other than City Hall's service counters, other departments such as the police and Road Transport Department will also open their counters as well.
