Chairman’s Message

Dear Residents

Covid-19 has impacted our mental well-being as a community. It is important that we care better for ourselves and for others. In this issue, and in conjunction with October 10 World Mental Health Day, we share some information on the mental well-being resources and support network within our Jurong-Clementi community.   

Speaking of support, the Ministry of Finance has set aside $135 million in service and conservancy charge (S&CC) rebates for 950,000 Singaporean HDB households this year. Eligible households will receive between 1.5 and 3.5 months in rebates, depending on their flat types. The next tranche of rebates will be credited directly into the households’ S&CC accounts in October. If you have any challenge in keeping up with S&CC payments, please feel free to contact the Town Council. We will assist.  

I am also happy to share that the Town Council has enhanced safety features for electrical fittings in common areas across the Town. This includes fitting public lampposts – 3,527 in total – with Residual Current Device and Earthing System. Your safety will always be our foremost priority. 

Let us continue to build a strong and caring community, together. Stay safe, stay well.

亲爱的居民:

冠病疫情对我们的心理健康造成了负面影响。因此,我们必须更好地照顾自己和关怀他人。适逢10月10日是世界心理健康日,我们在这一期提供了裕廊—金文泰社区内的一些有关心理健康资源与支援网络的信息。

说起支援,财政部今年拨款1亿3500万元,为95万户居住在组屋的本地家庭提供服务与杂费(S&CC)回扣。符合资格的家庭将获得介于1.5至3.5个月的S&CC回扣,视组屋类型而定。下一轮10月的回扣将直接反映在受惠家庭的S&CC账户。如果你在支付S&CC方面遇到困难,请随时与市镇会联系,我们将给予援助。

此外,我们也致力于保障大家的安全。因此,我很高兴能够跟你分享,市镇会加强了公共地区电力装置的安全,包括为3527根公共灯柱安装漏电保护器和接地系统。

让我们继续携手打造坚毅不屈、互助关爱的社区。祝愿大家平安健康。
