Mr Singh also said that he “took the chance” to talk to a cleaner in the area after he had parked his car at the MSCP.

“I was pleased to note that the transition between Town Councils was seamless for him.”

He added that Ms Khan had also received “some useful feedback” from the residents of Compassvale, which the SKTC would consider together.

Mr Singh noted that “TC management can be a steep learning curve and even more so if one isn’t on the ground, so I am particularly encouraged to see all my brother and sister WP MPs and members taking their ground outreach very seriously since the last elections!”

He also provided the contact information for the SKTC and encouraged residents to reach out if they had concerns.

“Please do not hesitate to contact SKTC or to meet the Sengkang GRC MPs in person at their Meet-the-People Sessions for any Town Council related matters. Thank you!
