Hsinchu Residents Protest Against Inconsistent Scheduling|新竹縣市"颱風假"不同調 林智堅臉書被洗版
Hsinchu county declared a typhoon day on the night of Sept. 29, while Hsinchu City government waited until the next day around noon to announce a partial school and work suspension after 6pm. Tens of thousands of upset messages were left on Hsinchu Mayor Lin Chi-chien's Facebook page.
Parents are rushing to send their children to school in the morning. Many parents who live in Hsinchu County had to take their children to schools in Hsinchu City. The two neighborhoods have been subject to different announcements in terms of school and work schedules. Many local residents have protested against the inconsistent scheduling on the Facebook page of Hsinchu City Mayor Lin Chih-chien.
Some living in Hsinchu City still have to work (on a typhoon day) in Hsinchu County, others from Hsinchu County have to come to the city to work. (The inconsistent schedules) really affect us.
I don't think it's too much trouble. It's just minor troubles.
I think it's quite strange because at least half of the employees in my company don't need to work today.
This is the first time that Hsinchu City and County made an inconsistent decision on a typhoon day. The city government stressed that they made their decisions based the professional evaluations. The city eventually decided to suspend all schools and work after 6 pm on Sept. 30.
School and work will continue in Hsinchu City. At this point in time, all of the information we've received shows that the weather condition in the city doesn't fit the standards for suspending work. Therefore we've decided to resume our days as usual.
Hsinchu is close to mountains and the sea, we all know that when it rains, the rainfall volume could be substantial in the mountainous areas. We have evacuated the residents in WuFeng Township by 8 am. Our situation is a bit different.
Although Hsinchu City announced that school and work remains normal in the daytime, a high tech company at Hsinchu Science Industrial Park came into the public spotlight as its office building is located across Hsinchu County and City. Facing the dilemma of different announcements, the company decided to give its employees an off day.
新竹縣副縣長 陳見賢表示：「新竹縣有很多山，我們也靠海，有山、有海， 這個大雨來，大家都知道，山區雨量會變很大，很大的時候我們尖石五峰，我們在早上8點，已經完成撤離了，所以情況不一樣。」
