Editor;

I have been visiting Thailand for the past 14 years and a resident for the past 2+ years and have never understood why Pattaya residents and the government for that matter continue to accept such a shabby standard of service from City Hall, and equally why the local media are not more vocal about it. Hence my commentary hereunder: “Dereliction of duties or slack administration.”

City Hall seems incapable of even managing local rubbish removal let alone other prime public health & safety responsibilities a municipality so clearly has. Their shear neglect of Jomtien public areas is an absolute disgrace, raw garbage littering its streets day after day, crumbling & dangerous footpaths, seems to be the standard. Other obvious areas of gross neglect include construction & building code violations and public property encroachments, particularly in respect of Public safety, unsafe electrical and grey water disposal into the storm water system and ocean. It makes a complete mockery of the “governments push to upgrade the quality of tourist” in the region. If not such a serious health issue it would be laughable.

    You forgot to mention that it is all the foreigners’ fault. Yup, I am a foreigner and it is all my fault that the country is such a trash pit.

      What else could it possibly be? Rest assured that once the ‘good guy in, bad guy out’ initiative is fully engaged things will be different.

    Howie, it’s simple, none of the issues you mention are as important as the other things the administration is currently engaged in.
