Dear Mr Mayor, your tropical resort is rapidly becoming a rubbish resort, if it is not already there. I look from my balcony, rubbish is everywhere at the sides of the road. I used to do some sailing a few years ago, and many times in Jomtien Bay my boat sailed into a carpet of rubbish/plastic bags/polystyrene food trays, plus a smell. They have a 5-day international yachting race here every year, what they must think I do not know. A city this size should have a modern waste recycle plant. Building/renovation should be curtailed, and need planning permission. Tourists are the life blood of Pattaya, but all they see is decomposing plastic bags. One day you will kill the golden goose.
