Housing Board residents in all 15 People's Action Party town councils will pay higher service and conservancy charges from June 1.

The reasons include higher expenses for cleaning and pest control, as well as for lift maintenance and replacement. The increase will be in two phases, with the second to be implemented on June 1 next year. This year's hike will range from 50 cents to $9 a month for HDB one-room to executive flats.

The Workers' Party-run Aljunied-Hougang Town Council also said it would make an announcement in due course.
