The Sembawang Town Council has agreed to replace the water tank in which a maid's body was found last Monday

THE Sembawang Town Council has agreed to replace the water tank at a Woodlands Housing Board block in which an Indonesian maid's body was found last Monday. Its general manager Soon Min Sin said that the town council had met up with engineers and contractors over the past few days. 'A plan has been drawn up to replace the existing tank with a new one. Work will start once the relevant authorities have given their approval, he said, adding that the submissions will be handed to them soon. 'We studied the residents' suggestions and found that this was feasible, so we decided to act quickly and replace it.' The town council is in the midst of informing residents of its decision. So far, 84 residents at the affected Block 686B in Woodlands Drive 73 have signed a petition for the tank to be replaced. About 150 attended a dialogue last Saturday to air their grievances.
