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.
