Executive Councillor for Housing, Local Government and Tourism, Dato’ Nolee Ashilin binti Dato’ Mohammed Radzi said the issue of change in management for the ecotourism area of Mirror Lake (Tasik Cermin), Simpang Pulai is under the jurisdiction of the Ipoh City Council (MBI).
She said that the concession company previously appointed to manage Mirror Lake had been declared bankrupt and could no longer conduct any business matters.
“The withdrawal of the management contract from the concession company was due to the company having gone bankrupt.
“This issue has nothing to do with the allegation claiming MBI took hasty action to terminate the contract. It was done because the company had violated the rules and agreements that had been set.
“MBI’s decision to select a new concession company will go through a process of discussion and be brought up during MBI’s full board meeting to decide on the best proposal,” she told Ipoh Echo after the recent implementation of the Perak State Hospitality Training Programme (read more on that here) at Shen Jai TVET college.
She added that the concession company should understand that the contract had to be terminated due to the violation of conditions.
She said there were no issues when the tender was granted.
“The current management of Mirror Lake is under MBI. So far, no report has been issued on the appointment of a new concession company.
