The Suva City Council has backed calls by Attorney General Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum toward building owners for them to clean up their buildings.

Suva and Lami special administrator Isikeli Tikoduadua said building owners in Suva had ignored their buildings.

“Some are dirty and this brings down the appeal of Suva. We as the council will now be going back and see what we can do to enforce cleanliness, if we can,” he said.

“We will also look at ways in which the council can help in the clean-up of the buildings.

“Suva City Council owns quite a number of buildings and we have a schedule for clean-up.”

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum invited Suva businesses to take a trip to the fifth floor of the TappooCity building and look at the rooftops and status of buildings in Suva.

He said the aesthetic appeal of the city was being lost. He said in some cases they had found that the landlords are overseas and their main concern was making money.

He said when borders open, the competition for the tourism market would be fierce.

He asked, what sight did Suva want to give those who would come on the cruise liners?

Mr Sayed-Khaiyum said clean buildings were very important.
