In response to STOMPer Carpet Bomber's feedback about the many birds that have caused problems in Bedok, East Coast Town Council has replied that the bird population will be controlled through ways like the pruning of trees in the area.
In a response dated March 11, East Coast TC said:
"East Coast Town Council has taken steps to curb the population of the birds.
"1. We have instructed our cleaning contractor for the food centre at Block 85, Bedok North Street 4, to step up the cleaning efforts during peak hours.
"2. Our horticultural contractor has pruned some of the trees around the area.
"3. We have also informed the other agencies involved about this issue. i.e Land Transport Authority and National Environment Agency. Working together, we hope to provide our residents with a safe and clean living environment."
