Town Councils should terminate errant contractors for failure to clean up repeatedly

There have been many calls for tougher enforcement by NEA on errant town councils found breeding mosquitoes.

Is the fact that they have so far been exempted from penalties the reason why despite all the stepped-up efforts by households that the problem not only has not improved but has in fact got worse? Without being subjected to penalties, town councils will not act against their contractors.

Shouldn't town councils terminate their cleaning contracts if they are found to be grossly and recalcitrantly inefficient? Are yardsticks in place to measure their performance?

Town councils, being custodians of the residents' money, should award contracts to companies that can do the job best and at the most competitive price, and if the recent dengue outbreak and the subsequent clean-up efforts is any indication, then these outsourced contractors have failed miserably, even if their price may have been competitive.
