Sengkang Town Council (SKTC)'s new branch office, located at Blk 323C Sengkang East Way, will commence operations from 20 March 2023 (Monday). SKTC is looking forward to being closer to and offering greater convenience to our residents, especially residents of Anchorvale and Compassvale divisions.
Following from the ground breaking ceremony held in July 2022, the official opening ceremony was held on 18 March 2023. We were delighted to have with us invited guests from the Council, as well as representatives from the public service, and our community partners. In her opening speech, Ms He Ting Ru, Chair of SKTC, said “The new office marks an important milestone for SKTC. As a relatively young town council which was established in 2020, SKTC is appreciative of the support from our valued partners and we look forward to working closely with our various community partners to serve the needs of Sengkang residents.”
Since commencing full direct management on 1 February 2023, SKTC has been following up closely on feedback as well as reviewing previous concerns. SKTC will also be implementing a single new Essential Maintenance and Service Unit (EMSU) hotline -- a 24-hour service to attend to emergency and maintenance requests. As SKTC was formed from parts of Ang Mo Kio Town Council and Pasir Ris-Punggol Town Council, it inherited two separate EMSU service providers which resulted in two different hotlines. We are pleased to now complete a transition to a new hotline, 6590 9777, which will come into effect on 1 April 2023 and attend to all Sengkang residents across the town.
Some other developments which residents can look forward to include the ongoing work to install electrical vehicles charging stations in the town, and also piloting digital engagements such as the survey and announcement feature of the OneService application by the Municipal Service Office. We will also continue to hold our quarterly Sengkang Conversations led by our Sengkang Members of Parliament, a town hall event for residents to voice concerns on issues affecting our community.
Finally, with the two Build-To-Order projects (Anchorvale Village and Rivervale Shores) expected to be completed this year, Mr Jamus Lim and Mr Louis Chua are looking forward to welcoming new residents to the Anchorvale and Rivervale community, and details about the two welcome parties will be announced closer to the date.
