The Ipoh City Council spent a total of RM287,680 for renovation and upgrading the restrooms and changing rooms of the MBI Swimming Complex recently. The swimming complex was closed from August 3, 2015 while the work was in progress, including replacing wall and floor tiles, pipes and water tank, as well as repainting the interior and exterior of restrooms, et cetera.
The complex was reopened to the public on December 7, 2015 but most unfortunately that only after three days, it was discovered that some of these facilities have been vandalised.
As these are new fittings, replacing them so soon would mean a budget overrun. As such, two guards will be placed at the men’s and women’s changing rooms as a deterrent against vandalism.
Nevertheless, it is hoped that members of the public will co-operate with the authorities and use these facilities with care, or report vandals if they come across any.
