The Ipoh City Council organised a special lucky draw at the Council building recently. The objective was to pick winners of the choicest prizes on offer.
Mayor Dato’ Harun Rawi said that the aim of the lucky draw was to encourage people to pay their yearly assessments in time and in full.
Bacha Kachi Mohamed, 65, won the main prize, a Perodua Axia 1100cc saloon car.
“This is the first time I paid my annual assessment of RM600 in full. The prize encourages me to make full payment in the future,” said Bacha.
Second prize winner, Subramaniam, 61, said the move by MBI was very effective because it motivated ratepayers to pay in advance. He won a Honda Future 125cc motorcycle.
“The machine will come in handy for me and my family,” said Subramaniam.
