Posted June 25, 2018 06:23:17 The blinds can be a dark place for many, with a number of them in Australia’s Bali region shrouded in darkness and having their owners locked in a cage.
The blinds are common in the Bali-Lokomo area of the island, but the city of Serang, which is just north of Bali, has banned them.
In a statement released to ABC News on Wednesday night, Bali City Mayor Mohamed Muhannad said the city would “be working to restore the sight of these blinds” and had a plan to do so.
“The City Council is committed to providing residents with safe and adequate accommodation,” the statement read.
“We are working with local authorities and are committed to making this a reality for all the residents.”
It was not clear how many of the more than 500 blinds were in use in the city.
The city council said the blinds had been installed after complaints about the visibility of the city and residents.
“Bali has a large number of blinds and we want to ensure that residents have a safe and accessible place to spend their time,” the council said in a statement.
“While there are many different types of blind in the region, all of them have been approved for installation.”
Some people in the village of Sihanoukville said they would take the blind off their property if it meant the blind was not locked.
“It’s better for them not to have the blind locked, but if it’s for security, then yes, we will take them off the property,” said Tumusi Abi Nur, a resident.
“If the blind is not locked, it will be easier to get rid of it,” she said.
“They will just have to come to the door and open it, and they will not be able to come back and stay.”
Bali Mayor Mohamed says the city will restore the visibility on the blind in Serang.
